| | Taking Allegra and Claritin24 hr tabs
I'm seeing an allergist to help me with the numerous food allergies that I have( I'm allergic to nuts, fish, chocolate, pollen, certain spices etc.) He told me that when my throat tightens up, and feels like it's ready to close, that I can take a Claritin 24hr redi-tab on top of the daily dose of Allegra to further alleviate my allergic symptoms. I've done this a few times, and while it does help with my throat tightness, I get dizzy, and I feel some tightness in my chest. Is this normal, and will I get used to it?
I'll ask him about it the next time I see him, but I just wanted to get some opinions from people on this board who might be doing the same thing. I also take Albuterol for the throat tightness too, and when I started taking the Claritin redi-tabs for the first couple of days, they made me dizzy too, but eventually it went away, as I adjusted to the medication. The guy that I'm seeing is a board-certified allergist, so I figure he knows his stuff. I'd appreciate any feedback on this topic, thanks.
