Please stop antihistamines:

If you are unable to be off your antihistamines for this period you can keep your appointment as a consult only (no testing). 


Make sure to check the ingredient list for generic/store brand allergy medicines, which may have other names on the label (e.g. Allertec = cetirizine, Alavert = loratadine, Allerfex = fexofenadine)

DO NOT STOP Asthma medications including inhalers and Singulair/Montelukast – see separate document for other medications that do not need to be stopped for testing. If you have questions about a medication not found on either list or concerns about stopping a medication on this list please call the office.
