am finding that zyrtec (in liquid form, which is lactose free) is very helpful in reducing the severity of symptoms
Ooohh, thanks for sharing this note. I have been using liquid only because that is what we always have on hand since I am dealing with kids. I recently got tablet form because it seems easier to always keep it in my purse or to just carry it in my pocket (so much smaller!) . . . but I have not yet trialed the tablet form. I also appreciate that I can do smaller dosing with the liquid form, as that is usually enough to get me over the edge of a reaction (we use it for respiratory/asthma and skin reactions, including itching).

I want to thank everyone for every suggestion no matter how small it may seem. It is not. I have made major changes and have had two serious days with no reactions. A break through the Topomax migraine, guessing due to change in drastic diet and stress so got some Imitrex and I'm fine now. Pain in side is much subsided and not acute and I feel very hopeful and grateful to everyone. I set my sights too high as far as energy and had the rug pulled out from under me this weekend, disappointing friends and myself so I cried a lot but realizing time is the only answer. For the most part I am thrilled and hopeful with moments that are tough and grateful to have met such wonderful people to know I can find help to get through this. Right now I do not have health insurance so I'm not as lucky as most and it's scary. Thanks again for everything. Have a great week everyone.
