How many antihistamines do you guys take a day? What kind, mgs, and how often? I don’t know if I’m taking too many.
Mast cell activation syndrome
I would recommend getting your histamine levels checked and reviewing with your provider or a naturopath to determine if a change is needed (more or less antihistamines)
I take zyrtec 5mg twice a day and benadryl as needed. I’ve also taking hydroxyzine on top of those which seemed to help!
I take two. Allegra 360 and Xyzal 10.
I take Zyrtec twice a day, two benedryl in the morning, montelukast, and two pepcids in the evening as a H2 blocker.
I threw out all the prescription meds and I now only take benadryl twice a day. It was to simplify my routine since anything can trigger it I try not to introduce too many new things. But it honestly works for me....till it doesn't lol. I feel like my body is a bratty kid. Just running with sharp things here...with no spoons to speak of. If you know you know.
I'm on cromolyn 4 X's a day, Zyrtec twice a day, and famotadine twice a day and I'm still having to use as much as 8 benadryl a day too. It's just...a lot! But my Dr seems to think that is ok. Good luck hon!!
Ceterizine 10 MG 2-6 times a day. Benedryl stopped helping.
