Question Antihistamines

I recently had been taking Chlor-Trimeton,
4mg every 6 hours for allergies for the
past month until I started having side
effects. I quit taking it two days ago and
I am still experiencing jittery/anxious
feelings! How long do these side effects
stay in your system?

Re: Antihistamines

I don't recall having those side effects iwth that drug but it's been a long time since I took it. I owuld imagine it will take close to a week for that to subside. I suggest trying zyrtec or claritin - without the "D" as the decongestant is what causes this.

Re: Antihistamines

I am now taking Nasalcrom and that seems
to be doing the job.
