: : : :Anissa - Thanks for the response. Right now
: I am on zyrtex, zantac, atarax and doxipen at night. Still having trouble outside. I recently went on a trip, expecting to have less problems. Instead I had to take prednisone - I could go outside but I felt so tired and numb - it made me
: feel awlful. It sounds like the dose pack is prednisone, but lower dose. Perhaps it would be worth a try - but my doctor is very reluctant to allow me to take it because of the long term effects. If I have sucess will post. Thanks again

: : : : : : I have had severe chronic urticaria for 25 years now and finally I have found an Rx that allows me to live with this condition comfortably. It is Zyrtec. I take 1 tablet a day and hives are controlled. I experience NO side effects ....including drowsiness. In past years I have used many drugs with side effects from: attarax, prednisone, Susphrine (injected adrenalin), the lost goes on. If you haven't tried Zyrtec, I highly reccommend asking your doctor for it. Good luck!

: : : : : : : August, Sept, and Oct. I am so sensitive that I can't go out of my house. If I do go out just a little exposure will cause severe itching and stinging, flu-like symptoms, headaches that last for about a week. Sleep is near impossible. The rest of the year I have hives, but they are milder. Currently I'm on

: : : : : Thanks Renee. I am already on Zyrtex 2x per

: : : I have these allergies as well and as you,I have tried everything including zyrtec without any results. My Dr. prescribed a DOS PACK , I am not sure of the name but I am sure your Dr. will know, this has been successful after the first dose for me.

: : JEANNE-dont know if you got my last message because I dont know what I am doing here but the name of the dos pack is: methylprednisolone tablets USP (21 pack) 4mg. , they are working for me right now.......Anissa

Did anybody ever hear about these types of allergies being linked to your auto immune system?
I was recently told that my allergies may be linked to this.
