Chronic hives - look'n for a cure????

My immunologist has me on Doxepin and says it may do away with the hives if I take it for about three months. As you know if you've been or are taking Doxepin it makes one very tired. I can put up with that (it does keep my hives quite manageable) but will it put me into remission with my hives?? Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Signed- walt

Have you tested for food sensitivities? You can do an elimination diet to check for sensitivities to wheat, corn, dairy, and nightshades (tomatoes, peppers, eggplant). Sounds basic but apparently a lot of people - especially those with autoimmune disease - have food sensitivities and when they identify it and eliminate the problem from their diet, symptoms - such as chronic hives - will vanish.

Just a thought! Good luck to you.

Do appreciate your suggestion of checking out any food sensitivity. I definately will take that up with my MD. Thanks so much for the suggestion. Marigold 2929
