Ssris And Cholinergic Urticaria

Recommended Posts

On my journey of wellness my doctor prescribed my 20 mg. of Paxil. I've been on tons of antidepressants over the years (best one that worked was an MAOI), but I have cholinergic urticaria, which is basically a heat allergy. I don't think my cardiologist is aware of this and now he's out of town for a while. Have any SSRIs helped you, especially if you have a heat intolerance or allergy? I was on a tricyclic a few years ago and had to go off of it because of my heat intolerance, and was just in urgent care getting IV fluids last night because of dehydration partially due to the heat.

This all gets easier, right?

I get hives due to autonomic dysfunction. The only thing that really works for me is an antihystamine called xyzal. It makes me sleepy though so I only take it if I'm home. My hives seem to occur in the evening anyway so I usually take the xyzal at dinner so I'm itch free for the night.
