tallulah Posted August 25, 2005 Share Posted August 25, 2005 Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride = NO good for ashl3igh. Loratadine = doesnt work worth shit; never has. I decided to try Sinutab (Pseudoephedrine). I figured that i would be either climbing the walls or go a little hypo. My allergies were so bad last night. i count a total of 86 sneezes yesterday - and the stuffed up nostrils where NOTHING would drain them, and i couldnt bend over because they would pour out like a tap. result? went hypo - cleaned the entire kitchen, did 4 loads of laundry and then decided i was going to throw out the majority of my clothes (desperately needed to do so), and it REALLY helped my allergies. in the past (before being medicated) i had always used regular ephedrine as an allergy medication (5mg). i found that it helped better than anything, but i couldnt handle the palpitations and horrid agitation. now that im taking my lamictal and topamax - im really scared of trying it again. and to boot, PRETTY sure its not a good idea. my allergies were awful again this morning, so i popped two more sinutab before leaving for work. by the time i got here, the mania set in so bad i ended up whipping my coffee off the picnic bench and started freaking on my fellow employees - and i can barely remember what i was saying to them. took some xanax and 50mg of topamax and i feel SO much better. topamax = my WONDER drug. could there be ANYTHING out there that will ever help me?!? im running out of options. im also scared of getting addicted to afrin - which is the only nasal spray that works and extremely hard to find in most drug stores here in Canada. im going to go through with allergy testing and get some more shots made up - and actually get them this year. HOPEFULLY i wont have them nearly as bad next week. xo Ash Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
