I'm not sure. We are not doctors nor pharmacists so maybe you should call up either one of yours to ask? I would want to say yes it would but I'm not a doctor so don't take my word on it.

are you having a trytase level performed? If so, it's always recommended that you stay on your meds.

Claratan is an H1 inhibitor. It's supposed to lower your histamine levels. That being said, as a systemic mastocytosis patient I can tell you that it doesn't even make a dent in my tryptase level. It was originally 73.5 (normal being between 3-11). A year after taking meds (claratan, zantac, aspirin and gastocrom) it's now 83.
