Hello doctor,

I am an allergic patient from last few years, every alternate day I use to take Cetirizine pil, if I fail to take the same I feel breathing shortness, headache, itching, irritation, smooth, cold, swelling on face and head, and final up to fever. Once I reach to fever label, then Cetirizine does not work then I will have to approach a doctor for antibiotics.

After taking Cetirizine pil, I feel sleepy and lazy, and even I measured low BP. I have consulted with many doctors, but everyone says to identify the reason (food) when you feel allergic. But I am failed to identify the same in the last few years. Tired with medicine and health to looking for permanent solutions. Need your guidance.
