Side Effects Of Using Allergic Drugs During Menstruation?
Tonight I want to ask, I have been consuming incidal for almost 5 years because I have been exposed to allergies that have descended from my father and my periods are not smooth 3-5 months and the head is dizzy when standing after sitting or lying down. Is that the effect of the drug?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Cetirizine is an antihstamine class of drugs used to indicate allergic reactions in patients, and helps reduce the inflammation process that might occur. Some complaints in the form of itching, runny nose, sneezing, redness of the skin, swelling, watery eyes are complaints that often accompany allergic reactions.
The causes of allergy vary, each individual has a history of allergies that are different or may be the same, such as food allergies, medications, cold temperatures, dust, or allergies to certain chemicals.
Side effects that are often found in patients who consume cetirizine are weakness, drowsiness, confusion / anxiety, dry mouth, micturition, or headaches.
In connection with your question, any complaints about menstrual disorders that you feel might not be a side effect of cetirizine. Based on data on side effects that are often encountered in the use of cetirizine, complaints on the female reproductive system, can cause bleeding between two menstrual cycles, or excessive menstruation. While cases of late menstruation according to 2011 data from the FDA, only one case was registered with the FDA. Thus, late menstrual complaints may be caused by other conditions, such as disruption of menstrual balance, stress, physical fatigue, ovarian cysts, or perhaps brain stimulation of hormonal production that is less than optimal.
While dizzy complaints that you might feel might be caused by side effects from cetirizine or because of your physical condition that is fatigue.
Therefore, because you have felt this complaint for a long time, or it has started to bother you, you should consult your obstetrician directly. The doctor will conduct interviews, physical examinations, and investigations needed, such as blood tests or ultrasound examination. The results of the inspection will be a reference for the treatment and handling of complaints. Thus, the complaints that you feel can immediately improve.
For now, avoid physical fatigue, avoid sleeping late, and you should try to idealize body weight and adequate exercise.
