Smile Question for Cut Throat Chlortrimeton

Hello, I am new to these boards. But,
have come across your posts in C-Trimeton.
I have lots of allergies going on, was tested
last week at my ENTs office. Am experiencing
sinus head pressure, stuffy ears, tinnitus,
PND at times and off-balance feeling. Had
a CT sinus scan done two days ago and
will see my ENT in a few days. I started
taking the C-Trimeton today, 4 mg, just took
2nd pill. It seems like I can already notice
some improvement. How long does it
take for full effect? I can only find 4 mg
at stores. Can I take 3 pills at once 2x
a day for 12 hr effect? Are you still
taking these? What else are you doing
for your allergies?

Re: Question for Cut Throat Chlortrimeton

Welcome to board! DOn't know who you were directing this to but you'd have to read the package or ask a pharmacist about dosage. You could try a once a day pill like zyrtec or claritin (both of which are very cheap) to see it that works. A wee or so should be sufficient to see how well they will work.

Cool Re: Question for Cut Throat Chlortrimeton

This is for Cut Throat too:

I had seen where C-Trimeton (on another
Thread) had stopped working for you
after being on it for 5 years. What are
you doing for you issues now? Also,
have you tried allergy shots?

Re: Question for Cut Throat Chlortrimeton

Thanks for replying! My question was to
Cut Throat but certainly welcome all.
Apparently, C-Trimeton is the silver bullet
for allergy/ear issues when it comes to off
balance/dizziness. Zyrtec, Claritin and Allegra (Allegra
makes me dizzy) don't do what C-Trimeton
does. I also did find the 12 hr of C-Trimeton
on Amazon.

Glad it worked for you. I didn't care for it - back in the day....it's been around a long time.

Re: Question for Cut Throat Chlortrimeton

The old antihistamines make you drowsy, but I find they are faster acting and much more effective than the newer ones.

The maximum safe dosage is 6 pills per day, but you should not take more than 1 every 4 hours. I know it's annoying to keep remembering your medicine all day, but it beats overdosing. Besides, that's what cellphone reminders are for.

Re: Question for Cut Throat Chlortrimeton

Hi Jane,
I have been taking 1,4mg pill every 6 hours.
I thought I would try the 12 hr. and ordered
off the Internet (Chlorphen 12). It made me
very dizzy and that was taken before bed. I was
still dizzy the next morning with a bad headache.
Not sure if the 12 hr. is too strong? But, will
not take any more. Went back to my 4 mg.
and it's as if I have to start over again, cause
I still have the off balance feeling like I did before
I started taking the 4 mg. And, i feel that the 12 mg causes
this. I thought the Chlorphen 12 had the
same ingredients as C-Trimeton? Weird, huh?
