Re: Hives and Hashimoto's

Hi Emory,
Just wanted to tell you something that worked for me when I had hives very badly years ago, my allergist had me take Tagamet and Clariten together said they helped each other synergistic I think. Also Atarax helped a lot but it makes you very drowsy but I have little tolerance for meds so my allergist prescribed liquid which I could titrate to the dose that was good for me. As a side note, several years ago I had angioedema and found out my TPO antibodies were like 1,000 and then I was eventually diagnosed with Hashi's, more with the help of all the good people on this board then my internist, I finally got help from my rheumy. My TSH had shot up from 2 to 69 in three months. But now I am on a maintenance dose of synthroid and doing well. I also have RA and it was all part of the autoimmune picture. Good luck!
