Hello, I started getting chronic hives a few years ago, about the same time I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. My hives come and go, but lately they’ve been really bad. I have them all over my arms, legs and torso.
I’ve been taking Zyrtec (10 mg, once daily), Zantac (300 mg) and Singulair for the hives, but nothing seems to work. Has anyone tried any other medication that has helped? Has anyone tried upping Zyrtec to 20 mg per day? The hives are driving me crazy.
(Editor’s note: Always talk to a doctor before attempting any treatments so that he or she can prescribe the proper dosages and ensure that the medications will be safe for you).
