    Can I take antihistamines?

    Got bitten by a bee on the weekend.
    Swollen toe thats getting worse by the hour.
    Today's a public holiday, so no doctors open - went the the 24hr pharamcy - the pharmacist recommended an intihistamine - i told him i was on thyroxine and asked whteher i could take the antihistamine and he said it would be fine.

    Is he right?

    Yes. Three out of five of my mother's sisters take antihistamines (zyrtec daily) with medications. Antihistamine will be fine. You can also get topology on sight antihistamine cream and cortsone cream to help with the sting site as well.

    Sincerely,
    MG
