Ellie 1, two things I can share...
1. My H & S pdoc has ALWAYS said to NOT take ANY antihistamine medication with the psych meds as it will throw them off and have interactions
2. WHENEVER we have wondered what was safe to do, or could have potential issues, we have consulted with our pharmacist who has been able to look up what is safe to take that will not cause those interaction issues with whatever medication my H & S take.
Sorry to hear you are feeling so punk. Hang in there...the BEST thing I know of honestly - and I can GUARANTEE will not have interactions is HOT FRESH CHICKEN SOUP. Not the canned kind, but A LOT of the REAL stuff. Mine is VERY medicinal and throughout this season I get requests for it because people know it REALLY works...plus, it is also DELICIOUS! If you want the recipe, let me know, I am happy to send it to you privately. Within 24 hours you will turn a corner and be well on your way to recovery. It happens every time. I usually make a HUGE vat of it and freeze much of it in individual containers and then I have it for everyone, including myself, when anyone gets sick vs. feeling presured or crummy and having to make it. But, believe me, MANY times I run out by the time I need it from passing it around to everyone as needed, and then I don’t have any for me! This year I am starting to make it early and am working to be VERY prepared so I am not caught off guard…but, I probably will be anyway. More and more people ask me for it! Oye!
Feel better hun, and let me know if you want that. Hope the above information helps. LFW
