My ent doctor prescribed me...
My ent doctor prescribed me xyzal for the fluid accumulated behind my eardrum since i had ear infection. I really do not like antihistamine medicines and especially the ones which increase heart rate or make me drowsy. My question, how bad is xyzal in terms of drowsiness and racing heart effect? And how helpful it is in drying up the fluids

Well itis one of the newer non-sedating antihistamines but it does cause heart racing and palpitations.

Let me know if you have any more queries

What if i do not take it, will the fluids still drain?

This isnt meant for draining fluid. It decreases body's allergic response to a foreign trigger. Its given for symptomatic relief in such cases. It has got limited role in treating infection. You can skip it by all means

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
My infection is already resolved. The doctor says there is fluid accumulation behind the eardrum. How is that resolved? On its own?

You require NSAIDs like naproxen or ibuprofen for that ,not an antihistamine

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.
