re the zantac/zyrtec combo… I already take lansoprazole (a ppi) re stomach acid… would just adding zyrtec work re mast cells or do I need to try switching to zantac instead of lansoprazole??
afaiu lanso does work differently than zantac re stomach acid… is that right??
Hi Bearcat, You want to be on H1 and H2 antagonists. A PPI helps a lot with too much stomach acid, but it is not an H2 antagonist. There are 4 of them that are FDA approved (all over-the-counter): cimetidine, ranitidine, famotidine, and nizatidine. Pick one of those and add an H1 antagonist (like Zyrtec or Benadryl). You’re on your way! Be sure to check with your doctor for any contraindications first, OK?
