EVERYONE READ....THIS WORKS!!!! Hello all, I am new to the site as far as contributing but have been reading posts for a few months now. I have had hives for almost 6 months now and as all of you know, it is worse than horrible. I have been to my GP, Dermatologist, Urgent care twice and 1 trip to ER in search of answers or at least some relief. I have been unable to sleep during this entire thing except for an hour or 2 here and there. Until last night. A few days ago I read a post from "hives and thyroid" about her cocktail which she swears works. Yesterday I go to the Allergist still looking for answers and my main concern I will be off my 5th round of steroids since January, and I know it will come back very strong. After talking a while she changed my antihistamine to Doxepin. Hmmm, that sounds familiar...I went home and read the post again and yes, it is one of the drugs that worked for her. Singular I am already on. Thats 2 of the 3!!! The other is Zantac..over the counter. I picked up a box and went home and made my cocktail....Singulair 10 mg. Doxepin 25mg. and Zantac 150 mg. I KID YOU NOT GUYS...MY ITCHING STOPPED WITHIN AN HOUR. TODAY ALMOST 24 HOURS LATER, STILL NO ITCH!!!! The hives are slowly fading as well but they dont itch!! It seems that the combination of these drugs hits all the H1/H2 receptor sites to stop the histamine from being released into the body. The Zantac hits the receptor site H2 which it seems the other antihistamines do not. Zantac, who knew??? I feel like a new person. What a relief. Talk to your doctors and get these 3 meds!!!!! I will keep you posted on my progress...Now to find the cause of it.

btw...Zantac (ranitidine) was first developed to be a histamine antagonist, hence it's use, along with other antihistamines, for hives. Good luck everyone, I know you are all as desperate as I am

HERE IT IS GUYS....NO ITCHING FOR 48 HOURS!!!! THE MED COMBO IS WORKING!! I am taking the 3 pills every 12 hours except last night I had fallen asleep and it went 131/2 hours since last dose. I have to say my skin was starting to crawl but shortly after the pills that went away. My skin is sore...like maybe I got into a fight or maybe I have been scratching it for 6 months but I am sure that will ease up. I know this is a bandaid until I get to the root of the problem but what a heck of a band-aid it is. Try it folks...even if you just add the Zantac to what you are taking now I am confident it will help. It blocks receptor site H2 which antihistamines do not. Good luck all

Sounds interesting, but what are you allergic to?

unknown at this time. We are just treating the symptoms which is the itch at this time. My doc is going to order tests to see if we can find the root of the problem but in the mean time, I feel so much better.

I have a opioid allergy and itch every morning before the sun rises. I'm good during the day but in the early morning it wakes me up with constant scratching. I was told to use an antihistamine. Benadryl wasn't helping so I tried a non drowsy allergy OTC. In addition I tried .5% lidocaine in sunburn spray with aloe base and it seem to work for immediate 3 hour short relief. It allowes me to go back to sleep. heyyyyyy.

Thanks for posting this. I just came across another post that said to use Zantac as well.

I have been dealing with hives since February. I've seen the allergist, dermatologist and have an appointment with a rheumatologist (which I feel will be a waste). They have all come up with no cause for the hives. Zyrtec was working for a while, and when it wouldn't work Benadryl would work. Unfortunately 2 weeks ago everything just stopped working and I have not had a moment hive free since. I can't wait to get out of work and go buy Zyrtec. I already have Doxepin and Singulair that I have been taking (along with Zyrtec, hydroxezine and loratidine- 9 pills total a day) and they have not been working. Fingers crossed this works!
