: I am not familiar with Ketotifen. My allergist prescribed zyrtec, an anti-histamine. My dosage was very high as I was having hives every day. The anti-histamine generally did work, though it left me very very tired (probably because of the high dosage). In the last 6 months I have been seeing a homeopathist and have been able to drastically reduce my intake of zyrtec, from 3-4 pills a day to about 1 pill every few weeks. You might want to try it.
: : I've had pressure urticaria for years. My dermatologist told me that Ketotifen taken once daily could prevent it. But she said it if it inconveniences me taking something evryday, I could just take antihistamines (like Benadryl) when the wheals come. Does anyone know if ketotifen really helps? Should I take Benadryl then?
: : Any help is appreciated.
: : Thanks!
