Withdrawal Symptoms After Stopping Antihistamines? Dr Grant Discusses
A patient recently stopped taking antihistamine and has found themselves suffering from itchy sore skin and other allergy-like symptoms. Dr Grant is asked if this a result of withdrawal from the antihistamines.
Dr Grant confirms that many people can suffer withdrawal symptoms if they stop taking antihistamines suddenly. Dr Grant recommends the patient resume taking the antihistamines and then slowly reduce the dose to wean off slowly.
