So I've been struggling since April with really bad chemical sensitivity, which has made food and other intolerances worse. I got in to see an allergist because of a cancelation. Apparently on top of all the other crap I'm highly allergic to dust mites and mould, mst have been for my whole life but just thought my symptoms were normal, hate when that happens.
Anyways, the allergist said that if i can get my allergies under control my system won't be so overwhelmed and my sensitivities will probably decrease. I'll buy that, sure why not.
He prescribed me 4 allergy meds. I've only looked up one so far but i don't like what I'm seeing. The one i looked up he's using off label, it's an asthma med. It says may cause mood swings, depression, thoughts of suicide, a runny nose, headache, vomiting and diarrhea. It says to not come off it without close supervision and to not miss a dose... that sounds antidepressant scary to me.
The meds he's prescibing to me are:
Montelukast sodium 10mg, take daily
Avamys nasal 27.5mcg fluticasone furoate, 2 sprays in each nostril once daily
Olopatadne drops 0.2%, one drop in affected eye as needed, no contact use while using this med - I'll have to get new glasses as mine are from the adult section and therefore too big for my face
Cetrizine 20mg, once daily as needed.
Given my struggle with the chemicals and that when i have a bad reaction it causes me to want to kill myself I'm not sure i want to start any of these.
I'm going to wait and talk to my naturopath and see what she says, but id like your opinions.
Am i being crazy overly cautious? Does anyone have any experience with these meds?
