I've done allergy testing twice - at 13 & 16. I'm now 26 & my new allergist wants to do them again. I take Zyrtec, Patanol & Nasonex daily & he thinks I could benefit from injections. I did them when I was 16, for about a year, but saw no improvement so I stopped.
I haven't taken any meds since last Friday getting ready for the testing on Saturday & I'm MISERABLE. I don't say that lightly, I have quite a few health issues, but this is crazy. I didn't realize how much my allergy med cocktail was helping, but I'm an itchy mess. I have a call into the nurse, b/c my Thanksgiving isn't going to be pleasant, but do you guys know if you can take anything before testing? Benadryl, something?
