Every winter I end up with bronchitis or some insufferable chest gooey nasty phlegm related sickness. This year when I started dripping, as I do, I started taking Claritin D. Helped with the dripping and my chest felt better to boot.
Interesting side effect was decreased injection site reactions, fevers, general malaise … in other words my usual Rebif “flu-like symptoms”.
Word on the electronic street is that the antihistamines combat the slight allergic reaction some people have to the immuno-whatever that is Rebif and the like.
So, if you’re like me, check with your doc and try it out. All of a sudden I had energy. Cognitive clarity didn’t improve noticeably but I was able to do things.
The down side is its drying my mouth and eyes so I’m trying to work out a schedule that helps the icks and keeps everything moist that’s supposed to be moist.
