In what way do you feel bad?

It usually relieves itching, runny nose etc within a couple of day.

Hi ed,

last night i slept on the couch in the living room and it was very good. There must be something bad in my room.

Today i will try with no meds to see. If i sleep well then there must be something in my room. I cleaned the floor. Maybe i am allergic to the cleaner. Another possibility would be the matress, the paint and the humidifier.

Hmm i will keep you updated.

Hi,


>last night i slept on the couch in the living room and it was very good. There must be something bad in my room.

There definitely could be something in your room..... but, prednisolone could have helped you a lot last night too. It is going to be having a strong anti-allergy effect.

>Today i will try with no meds to see. If i sleep well then there must be something in my room.

Possibly, but the anti-inflammatory effect of prednisolone might not have worn off yet. Could be too soon to make a decision on the cause.

I have this severe allergy since i cleaned the floor in my room with cleaner. This last night on the couch was still better although my nose was running a little bit.

anionic surfactants, non-ionic surfactans, Soap, dyestuffs, auxillary supplies, scents and C8H10O2 Phenoxyethanol.

Yes, it is the first time i used that cleaner. Also i have used disinfecting agent for the blanket, matress cover and pillow. That might be the culprit. On the couch without the blanket and pillow i dont have allergy symptoms.

Hi Lamdage,

How's the prednisolone doing for you?

Perhaps you're allergic to the fragrance in the cleaner.

Hi Ed,

i am not taking it anymore. I think i had some psychological withdrawal symptoms because i took 100mg (like prescribed). On the couch without my blanket and pillow i am 100% fine. With Blanket and pillow i have some symptoms. In my room i have very severe symptoms.

I am at my dads place and i have been 85% fine with his guestbed.

I bought organic cleaner and i will clean the floor twice with it when i am back monday at night. I have my appointment with an allergy doctor on wednesday.

Regards
Lamdage

I will take all the stuff with me to the allergy doctor and hopefully we can test which cleaners/detergents are fine and which are not.

Hi Lam,

You mean you were told to take 100mg prednisolone a day for five days, I thought you were told 50mg for ten days?

It sounds like you are working out a solution to this. That's great news.

Hi Ed,

i am in my fathers guest bed. They use the same detergent like me but no disinfecting rinse. I have zero symptoms so it must be the disinfecting rinse. And the floor cleaner.

>I had a bit of a psychological withdrawal. is that possible?

I suppose it is possible, but not likely to be a problem. You have taken it extremely short-term. You shouldn't have any withdrawal problems now due to the prednisolone because the adrenal suppression caused by a single high dose (or two) of prednisolone is very brief, probably just lasting one day. In general, prednisolone has to be taken every day for a few weeks before there is a problem with withdrawal. So, you should be fine now, as in not affected by the prednisolone.

100mg a day is an very high dose for a nasal allergy! 50mg is high but 100mg is loads. Usually, nasal topical steroids are sufficient for nasal allergies, and can be very effective and safe. If prednisolone is needed, about 25mg (each morning) for a few days would normally be enough. So that's something to consider if you take it again. 100mg/day is normally only needed for life-threatening conditions.

You seem to be getting closer to finding the cause of this allergy :)

 

i dont know if i should continue LDN

I am anxious because the low dose naltrexone is not approved for anything.

You can only make the decision based on whether you believe it is helping. Who is prescribing it for you?

Ah right. I thought you were doing better for anxiety overall and had less lorazepam?

I really hope it helps you. From what you have read, how long will LDN take to work for depression?

Hi Scott,

i think it can take up to 6 weeks on the highest dosage. I feel funny on LDN and i think my driving is affected. I take public transport!

Naltrexone has been an approved drug since 1984. You're just taking a very low dosage of it. And prescription drugs are frequently prescribed off-label to treat conditions that they weren't approved for.

 

For how long can i take Rupatadine?

Hey babblefriends,

this Rupatadine actually works quite well for me. Can i Take it 3 weeks in a row? Will i ruin the effects by taking it every day?

Hi.

>Can i Take it 3 weeks in a row?

Yes, that's fine. You can take the antihistamine rupatadine regularly if needed.
