I am hoping to start taking Ketotifen soon. Yeah! I am hoping the drowsiness will be less than wth cetirizine and of course the long term side effects are a bit scary. Unfortunately I get an upset stomach with famotidine so I don’t take it. That means the benefits of ketotifen may be even better! Question: what is the recommended starting dose? I have looked and looked only to find a thread that mentions 5mg is more than twice the daily recommended dose. Currently I take 20mg day of cetirizine (generic).
Dr. Driscoll, thank you for changing my life with your protocol. 💖
Hi Anneal, Your prescribing doctor should be the one to ask this question, as everyone is different! I would recommend a tablet as opposed to a capsule to get started, so that you can break it into smaller doses should you need to! The flexibility of tablets can be great! 🙂 Dr. D
