Stayed clam took 2 puffs of my welbutrol (asthma). Decided off of both after 3 days urination a problem kept on with finasteride treating my hives decided to stay off both but took finasteride maybe 1 every 2 to 3 days, ran out, went back to treason about 1 week later and by this time hives etc had improved 95% but was taking antihistamines every day, does that keep hives from developing? will look into it.
