Benadryl Allergy Decongestant Oral: Uses, Side Effects, Interactions, Pictures, Warnings & Dosing

Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor. If you are self-treating, follow all directions on the product package. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

This medication may be taken with food if stomach upset occurs. Drink plenty of fluids unless otherwise directed by your doctor.

If you are using the liquid form of this medication, carefully measure the dose using a special measuring device/spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose. If your liquid form is a suspension, shake the bottle well before each dose.

Do not crush or chew extended-release tablets or capsules. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. Also, do not split extended-release tablets unless they have a score line and your doctor or pharmacist tells you to do so. Swallow the whole or split tablet without crushing or chewing.

If you are using chewable tablets, chew each tablet thoroughly before swallowing.

If you are using a product made to dissolve in the mouth (tablets/strips), dry your hands before handling the medication. Place each dose on the tongue and allow to dissolve completely, then swallow it with saliva or with water.

Dosage is based on the product you are taking and your age, medical condition, and response to treatment. Do not increase your dose or take this medication more often than directed without your doctor’s approval. Improper use (abuse) of this medication may result in serious harm (such as hallucinations, seizure, death).

If your doctor directs you to take this medication daily, take it regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time(s) each day.

Tell your doctor if your condition persists for more than 1 week, if it worsens, or if it occurs with fever, rash, or persistent headache. These may be symptoms of a serious medical problem and should be checked by a doctor.

BENADRYL® Active Ingredients – Antihistamines

The unique BENADRYL® range contains several different active ingredients; find out more about the benefits of each below. People react differently to different antihistamines, so whilst they do the same thing, if one has not worked for you if could be worthwhile trying a different type.

First, a quick recap on how antihistamines work…

Antihistamines work by preventing the actions of histamine. Histamine is a substance that the body produces in order to defend itself. Histamine is stored in ‘mast cells’ which can be found in almost all tissues of the body. Sometimes, when the body is exposed to a foreign substance (an allergen) it reacts by releasing its histamine stores from the mast cells.

Once released, this histamine causes small blood vessels (called capillaries) to widen (dilate). This causes many of the symptoms of allergy, as these blood vessels then start to leak their contents into the body tissues causing inflammation of the nose, eyes or airways and results in itchy watery eyes, a runny nose, sneezing and nasal congestion.

Acrivastine

Acrivastine is a non-sedating antihistamine, which works by blocking histamine h2 receptors, which cause allergic symptoms. It doesn’t prevent the release of the histamine but prevents histamine binding to its receptors. This in turn prevents the release of additional allergy chemicals and blood supply to the area, providing relief from the typical allergy symptoms. By blocking the actions of the histamine, acrivastine also helps to relieve itching.

Acrivastine is the fastest acting allergy relief capsule and starts working in about 15 minutes, providing fast relief. It can also be taken as required (up to three times per day) so that you can take as and when you need. This flexible dosing makes it ideal for dust and pet allergy sufferers who have short-lived attacks, and for hay fever sufferers as it can be taken in the morning and evening when pollen is at its peak.

Acrivastine is called a non-sedating antihistamine. However, people react differently to medicines and some people may experience some drowsiness.

Cetirizine

Cetirizine is a non-sedating antihistamine, which works by blocking histamine h2 receptors, which cause allergic symptoms. It doesn’t prevent the release of the histamine but prevents histamine binding to its receptors. This in turn prevents the release of additional allergy chemicals and blood supply to the area, providing relief from the typical allergy symptoms. Cetirizine, provides long-lasting, all day relief from allergy symptoms.

Cetirizine is called a non-sedating antihistamine, and is therefore unlikely to cause drowsiness. However, some people may experience some slight drowsiness.

To find out more about the BENADRYL® cetirizine adult range click here, or for more information on the BENADRYL® children’s range also contains cetirizine.

Pseudoephedrine

BENADRYL® Allergy Relief Plus Decongestant capsules contain two active ingredients, acrivastine (see above), and pseudoephedrine (a nasal decongestant).

Pseudoephedrine is a decongestant, and works by acting on alpha receptors that lie on the walls of blood vessels, including those which supply blood to the nose and sinuses. When the drug acts on these receptors, the vessels constrict, reducing blood flow through the vessels. This decreases the swelling of the tissues around the nose and sinuses helping to relieve your congestion.

Pseudoephedrine is effective at reducing the ‘blocked nose’ often associated with allergies.

Benadryl Allergy Relief Plus Decongestant Capsules – Summary of Product Characteristics (SmPC)

This information is intended for use by health professionals

Benadryl Allergy Relief Plus Decongestant Capsules

This product contains 8 mg acrivastine and 60 mg pseudoephedrine hydrochloride.

Excipient with known effect: Lactose monohydrate 146.8 mg per capsule, sodium (in sodium starch glycollate) 1.9mg per capsule

For the full list of excipients, see section 6.1

This product is indicated for the symptomatic relief of allergic rhinitis.

Posology

Adults and children 12 years and over:

One capsule as necessary, up to three times a day.

Children under 12 years:

This product is not currently recommended for use in children under 12 years of age.

Elderly:

This product is not currently recommended for use in the elderly.

Hepatic dysfunction:

Caution should be exercised when administering Benadryl Allergy Relief Plus Decongestant Capsules to patients with severe hepatic impairment.

Renal dysfunction:

Caution should be exercised when administering Benadryl Allergy Relief Plus Decongestant Capsules to patients with moderate to severe renal impairment.

Method of administration

For oral use.

– Hypersensitivity to the active substances, triprolidine or to any of the excipients listed in section 6.1.

– Cardiovascular disease including hypertension

– Concomitant use of beta blockers (see section 4.5)

– Concomitant use of other sympathomimetic decongestants.

– Diabetes mellitus

– Phaeochromocytoma

– Closed angle glaucoma

– Hyperthyroidism

– Severe renal impairment.

The concomitant use of a pseudoephedrine-containing product and monoamine oxidase inhibitors may cause a rise in blood pressure and/or hypertensive crisis. This product is therefore contraindicated in patients who are taking, or have taken, monoamine oxidase inhibitors within the preceding 14 days (see section 4.5).

Renal excretion is the principal route of elimination of acrivastine. Until specific studies have been carried out, this product should not be given to patients with significant renal impairment.

It is usual to advise patients not to undertake tasks requiring mental alertness whilst under the influence of alcohol or other CNS depressants including sedatives and tranquilizers. Concomitant administration of this product may, in some individuals, produce additional impairment.

Although pseudoephedrine has virtually no pressor effects in patients with normal blood pressure, this product should be used with caution in patients taking antihypertensive agents, tricyclic antidepressants or other sympathomimetic agents such as decongestants, appetite suppressants or amphetamine-like psychostimulants. The effects of a single dose on the blood pressure of these patients should be observed before recommending repeated or unsupervised treatment.

Patients with difficulty in urination and/or enlargement of the prostate, or patients with thyroid disease who are receiving thyroid hormones should not take pseudoephedrine unless directed by a physician.

Caution should be exercised when using the product in the presence of severe hepatic impairment or moderate to severe renal impairment, or occlusive vascular disease.

This product may cause drowsiness (see section 4.8).

If any of the following occur, this product should be stopped:

• Hallucinations

• Restlessness

• Sleep disturbances

Severe Skin reactions: Severe skin reactions such as acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) may occur with pseudoephedrine-containing products. This acute pustular eruption may occur within the first 2 days of treatment, with fever, and numerous, small, mostly non-follicular pustules arising on a widespread oedematous erythema and mainly localized on the skin folds, trunk, and upper extremities. Patients should be carefully monitored. If signs and symptoms such as pyrexia, erythema, or many small pustules are observed, administration of this medicine should be discontinued, and appropriate measures taken if needed.

Ischaemic colitis: Some cases of ischaemic colitis have been reported with pseudoephedrine. Pseudoephedrine should be discontinued, and medical advice sought if sudden abdominal pain, rectal bleeding or other symptoms of ischaemic colitis develop.

Ischaemic optic neuropathy:Cases of ischaemic optic neuropathy have been reported with pseudoephedrine. Pseudoephedrine should be discontinued if sudden loss of vision or decreased visual acuity such as scotoma occurs.

There have been rare cases of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) / reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) reported with sympathomimetic drugs, including pseudoephedrine. Symptoms reported include sudden onset of severe headache, nausea, vomiting, and visual disturbances. Most cases improved or resolved within a few days following appropriate treatment. Pseudoephedrine should be discontinued, and medical advice sought immediately if signs or symptoms of PRES/RCVS develop.

This medicinal product contains lactose monohydrate. Patients with rare hereditary problems of galactose intolerance, total lactase deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption should not take this medicine.

This medicine contains less than 1 mmol sodium (23mg) per capsule, that is to say essentially “sodium-free”.

Pseudoephedrine

MAOIs and/or RIMAs: Pseudoephedrine exerts its vasoconstricting properties by stimulating α-adrenergic receptors and displacing noradrenaline from neuronal storage sites. Since monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) impede the metabolism of sympathomimetics amines and increase the store of releasable noradrenaline in adrenergic nerve endings, MAOIs may potentiate the pressor effect of pseudoephedrine. This product should not be used in patients taking monoamine inhibitors or within 14 days of stopping treatment as there is a risk of hypertensive crisis.

Concomitant use of pseudoephedrine with tricyclic antidepressants, sympathomimetic agents (such as decongestants, appetite suppressants and amphetamine-like psychostimulants), may cause a rise in blood pressure (see section 4.3).

Antihypertensives: Because of its pseudoephedrine content, this product may partially reverse the hypotensive action of antihypertensive drugs which interfere with sympathetic activity, including bretylium, betanidine, guanethidine, debrisoquine, methyldopa, adrenergic neurone blockers and beta-blockers (see section 4. 4).

Anticholinergic drugs: enhances effect of anticholinergic drugs (such as tricyclic antidepressants).

Oxytocin: risk of hypertension.

Cardiac glycosides: increased risk of dysrhythmias.

Ergot alkaloids (ergotamine & methysergide): increased risk of ergotism.

Moclobemide: risk of hypertensive crisis.

Anaesthetic agents: concurrent use with halogenated anaesthetic agents such as chloroform, cyclopropane, halothane, enflurane or isoflurane may provoke or worsen ventricular arrhythmias.

Acrivastine

There are no data to demonstrate an interaction between acrivastine and ketoconazole, erythromycin or grapefruit juice. However, due to known interactions between these compounds and other non-sedating antihistamines, caution is advised.

Acrivastine may enhance the sedative effects of central nervous system depressants, including alcohol, sedatives and tranquilizers.

Pregnancy

There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women.

This product should not be used during pregnancy unless the potential benefit of treatment to the mother outweighs any possible risk to the developing foetus.

Breastfeeding

This product should not be used during lactation unless the potential benefit of treatment to the mother outweighs the possible risks to the nursing infant.

No information is available on levels of acrivastine which may appear in human breast milk following administration of this product.

Pseudoephedrine is excreted in breast milk in small amounts, but the effect of this on breast-fed infants is not known. It has been estimated that approximately 0.4 to 0.7% of a single 60mg dose of pseudoephedrine ingested by a nursing mother will be excreted in the breast milk over 24 hours. Data from a study of lactating mothers taking 60 mg pseudoephedrine every 6 hours suggests that from 2.2 to 6.7% of the maximum daily dose (240 mg) may be available to the infant from a breastfeeding mother.

There have been the following side effects with acrivastine: dizziness and somnolence. Caution should be exercised when driving a motor vehicle or operating machinery.

It is recommended that patients are advised not to undertake tasks requiring mental alertness whilst under the influence of alcohol or other CNS depressants. Concomitant administration of this product may, in some patients, produce additional impairment.

Placebo-controlled studies with sufficient adverse event data were not available for the combination of acrivastine and pseudoephedrine.

No adverse drug reactions have been identified during post-marketing experience with the combination product acrivastine/pseudoephedrine.

Adverse drug reactions identified during clinical trials and post-marketing experience with acrivastine or pseudoephedrine as single ingredient products are listed below by System Organ Class (SOC). The frequencies are defined in accordance with current guidance, as:

Very common ≥1/10

Acrivastine

When the recommended therapeutic dose has been exceeded, acrivastine has been found to impair the ability to drive. This effect is related to the amount of acrivastine taken beyond the recommended maximum daily dosage.

Pseudoephedrine

Symptoms

Overdose may result in:

Hyperglycaemia, hypokalaemia, CNS stimulation, insomnia, irritability, restlessness, anxiety, agitation, confusion, delirium, hallucinations, psychoses, tremor, seizures, intracranial haemorrhage including intracerebral haemorrhage, drowsiness in children, mydriasis, palpitations, tachycardia, reflex bradycardia, supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias, dysrhythmias, myocardial infarction, hypertension, vomiting, ischaemic bowel infarction, acute renal failure, difficulty in micturition.

Management

Necessary measures should be taken to maintain and support respiration and control convulsions. Catheterisation of the bladder may be necessary. If desired the elimination of pseudoephedrine can be accelerated by acid diuresis or by dialysis.

Pharmacotherapeutic group: Nasal decongestants for systemic use ATC code: R01BA52

Acrivastine is a potent, competitive H1-receptor antagonist that lacks significant anticholinergic effects and has a low potential to penetrate the central nervous system. Acrivastine is chemically related to triprolidine. Acrivastine provides symptomatic relief in conditions believed to depend wholly, or partly, upon the triggered release of histamine.

Pseudoephedrine has direct and indirect sympathomimetic activity and is an effective upper respiratory decongestant. Pseudoephedrine is less potent than ephedrine in producing both tachycardia and elevation of systolic blood pressure and is less potent in causing stimulation of the central nervous system. Pseudoephedrine produces its decongestant effect within 30 minutes, persisting for at least 4 hours.

After oral administration of a single dose of 8 mg acrivastine to adult volunteers, the onset of action, as determined by the ability to antagonise histamine induced wheals and flares in the skin, is 15 minutes. Peak effects occur at 2 hours, and although activity declines slowly thereafter, significant inhibition of histamine induced wheals and flares still occur 8 hours after dose.

Relief from the histamine-mediated symptoms of allergic rhinitis is apparent within 1 hour of systemic administration of the drug and lasts for up to 8 hours.

After the administration of one this product to healthy adult volunteers, the peak plasma concentration (Cmax) for acrivastine is approximately 140 ng/ml, occurring at about 1.3 hours (Tmax) after drug administration. The plasma half-life is approximately 1.6 hours. Acrivastine is approximately 50% protein bound, principally to albumin. The peak plasma concentration for pseudoephedrine is approximately 210 ng/ml, with Tmax approximately 2 hours after drug administration. The plasma half-life is approximately 5.5 hours (urine pH maintained between 5.0 – 7.0). The plasma half-life of pseudoephedrine is markedly decreased by acidification of urine and increased by alkalination. Renal excretion is the principal route of elimination of both acrivastine and pseudoephedrine.

Descriptions

In November 2000, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a public health warning regarding phenylpropanolamine (PPA) due to the risk of hemorrhagic stroke. The FDA, supported by results of a research program, requested that manufacturers voluntarily discontinue marketing products that contain PPA and that consumers work with their healthcare providers to select alternative products.

Antihistamine and decongestant combinations are used to treat the nasal congestion (stuffy nose), sneezing, and runny nose caused by colds and hay fever.

Antihistamines work by preventing the effects of a substance called histamine, which is produced by the body. Histamine can cause itching, sneezing, runny nose, and watery eyes. Antihistamines contained in these combinations are:


  • acrivastine, azatadine, brompheniramine, carbinoxamine, chlorpheniramine, clemastine, dexbrompheniramine, diphenhydramine, loratadine, pheniramine, phenyltoloxamine, promethazine, pyrilamine, and triprolidine.

The decongestants, such as phenylephrine, and pseudoephedrine, produce a narrowing of blood vessels. This leads to clearing of nasal congestion, but it may also cause an increase in blood pressure in patients who have high blood pressure.

Some of these combinations are available only with your doctor’s prescription. Others are available without a prescription; however, your doctor may have special instructions on the proper dose of the medicine for your medical condition.

Do not give any over-the-counter (OTC) cough and cold medicine to a baby or child under 2 years of age. Using these medicines in very young children might cause serious or possibly life-threatening side effects .

This product is available in the following dosage forms:

  • Solution
  • Tablet, Extended Release
  • Syrup
  • Suspension
  • Elixir
  • Tablet
  • Tablet, Chewable
  • Tablet, Extended Release, 24 HR

Acrivastine (Benadryl): antihistamine that relieves allergy symptoms

If you or your child have been prescribed acrivastine, follow your doctor’s instructions about how and when to take it.

If you bought acrivastine from a pharmacy or shop, follow the instructions that come with the packet.

How much will I take?

Acrivastine comes as capsules (8mg). The usual dose in adults and children aged 12 years and over is 1 capsule 3 times a day.

When it’s mixed with a decongestant, each capsule contains 8mg of acrivastine and 60mg of pseudoephedrine. The usual dose in adults and children aged 12 years and over is 1 capsule 3 times a day.

Do not take more than 3 acrivastine capsules, or 3 acrivastine mixed with pseudoephedrine capsules, in 24 hours.

How to take it

Acrivastine doesn’t usually upset your stomach. You can take it whether you have eaten recently or not.

Swallow the capsules whole. Do not chew them.

Always take acrivastine capsules with a drink of water, milk or juice (but do not drink grapefruit juice with acrivastine as you may be more likely to get side effects).

When to take it

You may only need to take acrivastine on a day you have symptoms, such as if you have been exposed to something you’re allergic to like animal hair.

Or you may need to take it regularly to prevent symptoms, such as to stop hay fever during spring and summer.

What if I forget to take it?

Take your forgotten dose as soon as you remember, unless it’s nearly time for your next dose.

Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose. Do not take more than 3 capsules in 24 hours.

If you forget doses often, it may help to set an alarm to remind you. You could also ask your pharmacist for advice on other ways to help you remember to take your medicine.

What if I take too much?

Acrivastine is generally very safe. Taking too much is unlikely to harm you. If you take an extra dose by mistake, you might get some of the common side effects.

If this happens or you’re concerned, contact your doctor.

Say goodbye to springtime allergies

Spring is in the air. Warmer temperatures mean that trees bud, flowers bloom, grass grows and animals get more active. People do, too. But for some, spring means handfuls of tissues and a heavy dose of misery in the form of sneezing, watery eyes and stuffy noses.

Here are a few tips to help allergy sufferers enjoy the beautiful spring weather:

Oral allergy medications

Oral medications are especially useful for mild allergy symptoms, and many are available over the counter.

Nonsedating antihistamines can relieve itching, sneezing, runny nose and watery eyes. Options include:
  • Loratadine (Claritin), cetirizine (Zyrtec), levocetirizine (Xyzal) and fexofenadine (Allegra) all are available without prescription.
  • Oral decongestants, like pseudoephedrine (Sudafed) and phenylephrine (Sudafed PE) can ease stuffiness, and pseudoephedrine is often combined with an antihistamine. These medications are generally well-tolerated, with minimal side effects.
Common side effects

Oral decongestants cause insomnia and elevated blood pressure for some people, and antihistamines can cause drowsiness. If you find that one brand of antihistamine makes you sleepy, try a different one to see if you tolerate that better.

Older antihistamines, like diphenhydramine (Benadryl), are more likely to cause drowsiness compared to the newer antihistamines. Be careful about driving or working around heavy machinery if you take diphenhydramine.

Nasal steroid sprays

For more persistent allergy symptoms, nasal steroid sprays often are the best treatment option. Nasal steroid sprays block inflammation and swelling caused by airborne irritants and allergens, and prevent allergy symptoms.

Over-the-counter steroid nasal sprays include:
  • Triamcinolone (Nasacort)
  • Fluticasone (Flonase or Flonase Sensimist)
  • Budesonide (Rhinocort)

These medications usually start working after a few days. They can take a few weeks to reach peak effect, so they work best when used consistently, at least during your allergy season. It is fine to combine nasal steroid sprays with oral antihistamines, but the nasal steroid spray can prevent excess histamine production when it works well.

Be careful not to confuse nasal steroid sprays with decongestant nasal sprays, such as oxymetazoline (Afrin). Afrin-type sprays work well for rapid relief of severe nasal congestion, but they are addictive and can actually worsen nasal congestion when used too long. This type of nasal spray should not be used for more than three days in a row, and even then only occasionally.

Eye drops

Over-the-counter antihistamine eye drops, such as ketotifen (Zaditor) or olopatadine (Pataday), can rapidly relieve itchy eyes. Eyedrops often are more soothing when refrigerated. Oral antihistamines and nasal steroid sprays can help itchy eyes eventually, but antihistamine eye drops often provide the most rapid relief.

Inhalers

If you have asthma along with your allergies, inhaled medications likely will be an important part of your treatment plan. Some inhalers suppress the lung inflammation that causes asthma. Other inhalers, such as albuterol, dilate your airways for temporary relief of asthma symptoms.

Allergy shots

If you find that first-line treatments like nasal sprays and oral medications are ineffective or poorly tolerated, a series of shots to combat allergic symptoms is available.

However, you may first want to know more details about allergy shots before considering:
  • Allergy shots take months to start working and require a large time commitment, but their effectiveness is well documented.
  • Allergy shots contain miniscule amounts of the proteins that cause your allergic symptoms.
  • The shots are administered in gradually increasing doses once or twice per week for the first few months, then once per month for three to five years.

Visit with your health care provider about these and other ways to combat seasonal allergies, and you’ll be able to enjoy all the pleasures this season has to offer. Go for a bike ride, take a hike or picnic with your family. Treat yourself right, and you can leave the tissues at home.

Benadryl may interact with other medications such as antidepressants, sleeping pills, muscle relaxants, and other antihistamines.It is important to consult a professional before taking Benadryl with any other medications, vitamins or herbal products.

History

In 1940, diphenhydramine was discovered by George Riveschl while he was working as a chemical engineer at the University of Cincinnati, where he was conducting research on muscle relaxants.

In 1946, Benadryl was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for prescription use.In the 1980s, it was approved as an over-the-counter drug.

Benadryl was marketed by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare (originally Warner-Lambert) until 2007.

Reminds

On January 15, 2010, McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, recalled five batches of Benadryl due to the unusual odor associated with the chemical 2,4,6-tribromoanisole.

In April 2010, more than four million packages of Benadryl Children’s Allergy Tablets were recalled after it was discovered that they may contain a higher concentration of active ingredients than indicated on the label, as well as inactive ingredients that do not meet internal testing requirements …

Benadryl Topical Packaging Change

In 2010, after the FDA reported more than a hundred cases of erroneous oral swallowing, Benadryl Itch Stopping Gel packaging was changed. to include a new warning (“for skin use only”) and a sticker. [ clarification required ] was added as an additional precaution.

Society & Culture

Diphenhydramine has a common side effect of drowsiness or drowsiness. Because of these sedative properties, Benadryl is often used as a sleeping pill in people with insomnia. A study published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry found that about one in three adults between the ages of 65 and 80 occasionally use an over-the-counter medication, such as Benadryl, to improve sleep. In 2017, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine discouraged the use of over-the-counter antihistamines as sleeping pills for the treatment of chronic insomnia.Dr. Suzanne Bertisch of Harvard Medical School said using antihistamines as sleeping pills can cause drowsiness during the day, lethargy and falls.

Recreational Use and the Benadryl Problem

In May 2020, Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas, reported that 3 teens were hospitalized as a result of a diphenhydramine overdose. They claimed that the teens received information on how to abuse Benadryl from the social media app TikTok.In August of that year, an Oklahoma teenager died of a Benadryl overdose. After a later deleted Facebook post from a member of the teen’s family claimed the death was due to the Benadryl Challenge, news outlets reported on the dangers of the alleged social media trend. This prompted the FDA to issue a Danger Statement for high doses of diphenhydramine.

Advertisement

In the UK, a 2009 Benadryl Allergy Relief advertisement promotes the use of this drug to combat allergies.The campaign aims to “win the war on allergies” such as allergies to seasonal allergens such as pollen. The ad claims Benadryl Allergy Relief is “the fastest-acting, over-the-counter allergy relief capsule.” There are also other Benadryl commercials promoting its use against allergies. In an undated advertisement posted on Youtube, the advertisement promoted the use of Benadryl against pollen with the phrase “when allergies occur, hit back with Benadryl”.

In the 2009 Baby Benadryl ad, the campaign focuses on the use of Baby Benadryl to treat allergies in children so that they can continue their activities throughout the day. The ad shows the child sneezing throughout the video, performing various actions. He promotes the use of Baby Benadryl to relieve sneezing, runny nose and itchy eyes and states that “it works when they need it most.” Likewise, in 2008, there is an ad for Benadryl that also promotes the use of antihistamine to relieve allergies when it is most needed, as it says “you can’t stop life.”

Can Benadryl be taken with Claritin? Allergy Medication Mixing Questions – Health Education

Health Education

Itchy, watery eyes.Scratching throat. Continuous coughing and sneezing. Sounds familiar? More than 50 million Americans have allergies. In fact, allergies are the sixth leading cause of chronic disease in the United States. This country spends more than $ 18 billion annually on care and treatment. Gesundheit.

Americans have a variety of over-the-counter treatment options for allergy symptoms, including oral antihistamines, nasal sprays, and eye drops. Sometimes doctors may also recommend a decongestant.But as many allergy sufferers will tell you, there is often no perfect cure that relieves all of their symptoms.

This is why so many people are considering taking their allergy medication in half. Health conscious Americans often know that they should not take more than the recommended dose of any medicine. But is it safe to take two different medicines together? Combines Allegra and Claritin well? Can Benadryl be taken with Claritin? We’ve reached out to some medical experts to find out.

RELATED TO : Is it safe to mix alcohol and allergy medication?

Is it safe to mix allergy medicines? Can Benadryl be taken with Claritin?

According to Dr. Susan Besser, primary care provider at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland. You should not take multiple oral antihistamines at the same time, such as Benadryl, Claritin, Zyrtec, Allegra, or Xizal.Pick one and take it daily. “These medications work better with symptoms when taken daily,” she explains.

Dr. Duane Gels, an allergist with Annapolis allergy and asthma in Annapolis, Maryland, agrees that combining more than one oral antihistamine is unwise. “Here’s the problem with doubling,” says Dr. Gels. The FDA requires testing of these drugs to determine if they are safe, and it costs money. The guys at Claritin will pay for safety studies to get their drug approved, just like Allegra.But Claritin will not pay for studies showing it is safe to take with Allegra. And Allegra won’t pay for the research, claiming it’s safe to take with Claritin.

But what if the patient just can’t stop sneezing after taking one oral antihistamine?

Can allergy nasal sprays be combined?

I would advise using topical nasal steroids if they have no contraindications, says Dr. Gels.These are nasal sprays. Flonase, Nasacort, and Rhinocort are available over the counter.

He continues: “However, if itchy eyes are the patient’s main problem, it is better to use topical antihistamines (eye drops). Some options include over-the-counter Ketotifen (Zaditor) or a prescription drug such as Olopatadine [Pataday, Paseo, or Patanol].

You should avoid nasal decongestant sprays such as oxymetazoline (Afrin) unless absolutely necessary.Even so, do not use Afrin for more than three to five days. These drugs are stagnant and addictive.

What about oral decongestants like Sudafed?

“Sudafed (taken by mouth) can be pseudoephedrine or phenylephrine,” says Dr. Gels.The first now requires identification and is behind the counter, although no prescription is required. Works a little better than the last one on the shelves. Both can cause insomnia or heart palpitations, especially when combined with caffeine, so check with your doctor before going this route.

How long does a typical flu last

However, the appointment of Sudafed to patients under 4 years of age should be avoided due to the increased risk of toxicity, which can be fatal.In addition, if you have taken or have taken antidepressants with monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) in the recent past, this should also be avoided.

And remember, you must always follow the dosage recommendations on the drug label, as overdose of any medication can cause side effects. (And always check the medicine label before giving any medicine to a child younger than 4 years old.) High doses of antihistamines can cause drowsiness and heart palpitations, even without sedation.Medications such as Zyrtec and Claritin do not cause drowsiness just at the FDA approved dose. What’s more, an overdose of sedative antihistamines (such as Benadryl) can cause seizures and hallucinations.

In addition, some antihistamines are combined with pain relievers or decongestants. If you take another pain reliever or decongestant at the same time, it can also cause an overdose.

So read the label carefully.If you are taking any other prescription or over-the-counter medicines, be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist if it is safe to take your allergy medicine with it. You can also contact Poison Control if you think you have given too much or too much to your child. Phone number: 1-800-222-1222, or use the online tool. When in doubt, ask a professional.

According to the WHO, more than 30% of people worldwide suffer from allergies.What antihistamines help with her symptoms? Dealing with an expert

The article was checked and commented by Viktoria Galyas, allergist-immunologist of the Semeynaya network of clinics

Antihistamines for allergies

When an allergic reaction occurs, histamine is released, a substance that binds to the receptors of certain cells [1].Symptoms can range from mild discomfort, runny nose, and rash to serious complications such as Quincke’s edema and trouble breathing. Allergy medications reduce the effect of histamine and help relieve symptoms, but not the cause. The only way to eliminate it is not to interact with the allergen.

Before you start taking medications, you should consult your doctor. Only a specialist can select the right drugs, taking into account the individual characteristics of the patient and determine the duration of treatment.

Preparations of the first generation for allergies

The initial group includes drugs with the active ingredients benadryl, diphenhydramine and chlorpheniramine. It is one of the first drugs to treat allergy symptoms [1]. They have a calming effect, depress the nervous system and can cause drowsiness. They are excreted from the body quite quickly, therefore, they require frequent dosages if the cause of the allergy cannot be eliminated as soon as possible.

Tablets based on these substances help get rid of a runny nose, itching, sneezing, tearing and respiratory signs of allergies.

Preparations from the first generation group have side effects.In addition to drowsiness, they can cause dry mouth and nasopharynx, headache, less often – loss of appetite, nausea, muscle weakness. You should consult your doctor before taking medications.

They are strictly contraindicated in some patients, for example, in glaucoma, bronchitis, emphysema and high blood pressure. In addition, only a professional can calculate the possible effects of combining antihistamines with other medications.

Preparations of the second and third generation for allergies

New second and third generation OTC antihistamines target more specific receptors.The tablets and drops last much longer, so a smaller dose is required to treat symptoms. This is important if it is impossible to get rid of the source of allergens within a few weeks, for example, if you have a seasonal pollen allergy.

Preparations are available in the form of tablets, capsules, drops, nasal decongestant sprays. The appropriate format is selected individually on the recommendation of the attending physician. In some cases, antihistamine body creams, eye drops and inhalations with an active substance are prescribed [2].

Medicines based on cetirizine

Cetirizine is one of the most common active ingredients in second and third generation antihistamines [3]. Side effects from taking it are much less compared to drugs from the previous block, but they are not excluded. Doctors indicate possible headaches, drowsiness, difficulty breathing and swallowing. Preparations based on cetirizine, like most antihistamines, cannot be combined with alcohol. They are contraindicated in patients with kidney disease and asthmatics [4].

Tablets and drops last much longer, therefore a lower dose is required to eliminate symptoms

Medicines based on loratadine

Loratadine also helps to get rid of sneezing, runny nose and itching, eliminates most of the unpleasant and dangerous symptoms of upper respiratory tract allergy [5].It is used to treat urticaria, an allergic skin reaction. Taking the drug often causes drowsiness and headache. Side effects include rash, itching, and trouble breathing.

Medicines based on fexofenadine

Like most drugs, fexofenadine is produced in the form of tablets, capsules and drops. It is used to treat hives, relieve itching and relieve upper respiratory allergy symptoms. The side effects are the same as with other second and third generation drugs.

Potential consequences include indigestion, pain in the limbs, dizziness and an allergic reaction to the drug itself. Fexofenadine should not be taken with certain antifungal agents, antibiotics, and antacids [6]. Consult your doctor to clarify all the nuances. So, even ordinary fruit juice can reduce the effectiveness of the drug.

Allergist Comment

Viktoria Galyas, allergist-immunologist of the Semeynaya network of clinics

In Russia, every third adult and fourth child is allergic.The most common allergic diseases include hay fever, which affects 18–20% of citizens, allergic rhinitis (7–12%) and bronchial asthma (7–11%).

The preparations are safe in the recommended dosages. Passing through the liver, they are metabolized by its enzymes. But if the functions of the liver are impaired, unmetallized forms of the active substance accumulate in the blood, which can cause disturbances in the heart rhythm.

It is not recommended to drink alcohol while taking antihistamines, as it can reduce the concentration of the substance in the blood, and also increase drowsiness.

As for children, there are antihistamines that are allowed from one month of life, the dosage is individual and is selected by the doctor depending on the severity of the disease. Some active ingredients are contraindicated in childhood, but you can always find an alternative to them.

I prefer third-generation drugs, especially those based on fexofenadine. Most drugs are universal, but there are individual factors as well. The level of sensitivity to this or that active substance is different for all of us.It happens that an allergy goes away without additional medication support. In one person, symptoms stop immediately after interrupting contact with the allergen; in another, they persist for a long time.

If the allergen is not eliminated, there is a risk that the disease will progress, and in addition to mild symptoms, more severe ones may appear, for example, the transition of allergic rhinitis to bronchial asthma. In such a situation, antihistamines will no longer be effective.
