I have to stop my antihistamines for 3 days so I can have my pinprick allergy tests done again next week.
I thought why not try stopping them completely so I stopped them on friday.
By yesterday I was like a chimp with lice! Four days without - I thought I could get through the 'cold turkey' itchy chimp mode but had to give up last night and downed piriton at 11:30pm to get to sleep. I was so determined as I have been on antihistamines - cetirizine- permanently for years.
Has anyone tried to come off anti hisses and how did you get on? My skin is a bit of a mess at the mo - but it has calmed down so much.
I am so disapointed that I couldn't stop them completely. Will stop them on sunday for the tests next week but will take them again as soon as tests over.
and her friendly tub of diprobase!
