Customer Question
Diagnosed with antral gastritis and...
Diagnosed with antral gastritis and have been on Prevacid and Zantac for 3 months. My MD says I have no food restrictions while on these meds. After 2 months, I have developed allergies... Watery eyes, itchy skin,scratchy throat, occasional
hives on abdomen, and occasional tingly swelling of lips. I have never had food or pet allergies ( we have a German shepherd and 2 cats). Can these allergies be related to the drugs? When is it about time to get off the meds?

Hello,
Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
Allergy to drug can occur days or weeks after starting medicine.
It may not occur on first exposure but can occur with subsequent course.
When you are taking those medicines for 3 months already, those may not be the issue.
Often the cause of allergy may not be apparent.
Allergy test can be needed if the doctor feels necessary.
You can take antihistamines like benadryl or zyrtec.
You may need prescription grade antihistamine , sometimes steroid too.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
