Welcome to the forum.

If antihistamines are working that is good news. When I had an allergic reaction to various things, including some Meds (not to be confused wirh drugs), they offered 5 types and none worked.

However, if it is an allergic reaction to Adizem (never heard of it) and it continues, you should talk to your doctor.

I have noticed my right arm, from shoulder down , tends to itch and I have noticed pimples which are irritating. I have not taken any medication, I am taking enough pills, I use E45 and noticed that helps. It may be caused by meds, but it does not help when there are so many insects that seem to be lying in wait for me.
