It really depends on the med you take. With Zyrtec you have to stop 3-5 days before testing.

I was miserable too, finally went in for my tests and they did the skin ***** and drew blood and then applied a patch test that had to stay on for 72 hours (AGAIN without antihistamines). I thought I would lose my mind.

Calamine lotion and hydrocortisone was all that got me through.
