Have y'all ever run into the problem of your OTC antihistamine not helping anymore?

      @Sparkinthedark the only side effect was the same day, I got tired for the day. And it really hurts going in

      I was getting xolair shots, it helped me a lot. My hives started to go away so I don't have to get them anymore.

        @Jasmine81120 did you have any side effects with the shots?

      How are the xolair shots so far? I have hives and am raking so many antihistamines without much relief. This just started 2 weeks ago and xolair is my next step

        @Sparkinthedark I used to take a lot of antihistamines with no relief, but with how expensive they are and the little effect they had, I just opted to avoid situations that made the hives happen at all and took no antihistamines. It's not the best option ever, but it's better than wasting $30 a bottle for 2 weeks worth of no results.

          @Tatu my problem is I don’t have any certain situations that make my hives happen. I wake up with them every morning, take the antihistamines and they slightly fade during the day, take them again at night and then they flare up again at night and I wake up to a body covered in them. I don’t know what else to do
