    Unhappy

    Do any of you take allergy medications? I am so miserable with my allergies but I've read that it's not safe to take allergy meds while on phen. Have any of you heard this or have any info?

    You know, a lot of decongestants raise your BP ans since the Phen can also do that I imagine tht is why ...I am not sure about antihistamines though...they can make you drowsy, the Phen peps you up...could it be the antihistamine would negate the effects of the phen??? I would be curious to know also. There are several sites on the internet where you can check for drug interactions..you might try looking them up :0)

    I was on Zyrtec the whole time I was on phen, and I never noticed any interactions. My doctor prescribed the phen and he also writes my script for the Zyrtec and Inderal (to regulate my heart rate). He didn't seem to think I'd have any problems. And as far as OTC allergy stuff, I took that too when I was extra sniffly or sneezy.

    Happy nose blowing!

    I started taking the 12-hour Zyrtec in the morning and then I do Flonase at night. Both work okay with Phen. Choco-Cat - is that medicine Inderal for heart palpitations? I have them every now and then (not anxiety related), even when I don't take Phen. I'm on Toprol for high blood pressure.
