The human body is not a perfect machine as it has its imperfections. Sometimes our body can react to substances that can trigger negative reactions in our system that can cause utter discomfort. These "reactions" are commonly known as allergy. Simply put, an allergy is a dysfunction in our immune system and it can only be remedied by taking medication that thwart the unwanted "triggers" from further doing damage through chemical reactions.
Most people have allergies that involve: skin itching, watery eyes and uncontrollable sneezing. Allergy can be further divided into three types based on the triggering element:
- - allergy caused by diet-related triggers
- - allergy caused by the weather or season changes
- - chronic allergies that has congenital nature
If you have allergies yourself, you're not alone. In the US, it is estimated that 35 million Americans are living with different types of allergies and they are either maintaining appropriate medications or avoiding the triggers that result to negative reactions in their system.
We have breakthroughs in modern medicine to thank for that allergies are relieved almost instantly. Most allergy medicines nowadays are free of dangerous side effects that arise from components like accutane or adderall. In the past, the medications that contain these components instigate back pain, dizziness, stomach upset, fever, cough, earache, menstrual cramps and stuffy nose.
Side effects from accutane or adderall does not end from there. There are also reports that these chemical components either cause or intensify throat irritation, muscle pains, nausea, drying of mouth, general lethargy, headaches, indigestion, appearance of hives, drowsiness, nervousness, vomiting, and even nightmares.
In choosing the right allergy medicine, you should consider looking at the label and see if it contains antihistamine. This chemical component is safe and if coupled with the right accompanying chemicals - it can be non-sedating. It means you can take it while working or doing your daily routine without being bothered by drowsiness.
However, the best thing to do when taking in medicines for allergy is to consult your doctor about it. Usually, doctors can advise you also the food or liquors you have to avoid when taking these allergy medicines as they might have negative effects or counteracts to the substances contained in those. Children up to 6 years of age can safely take most allergy medicines, while pregnant women are advised to cancel out taking these medications unless they are recommended by their doctors.
Living with allergies cannot at all be bad, you should just follow what the doctors advise you and you'll surely be on the right path.
