Dear Dr. Diana and friends,
Hydroxyzine is the antihistamine Dr. Theo recommends for MS because it crosses the BBB unlike Zyrtec which is similar but formulated so it would NOT cross the BBB.
So Dr. Theo recommends this for MS (Multiple Sclerosis), not for Mast Cell stabilizing? I’m getting confused.
My doctor said Zyrtec does cross the BBB, and I for one cannot take it… it makes me a zombie, and that is why he said it crosses the BBB. I take Loratadine (Claritin)instead with no side effects, but am unsure of the Loratadine does anything/enough for mast cell stabilizing.
