    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    To everyone who takes Allegra beware that in some people it will cause severe anxiety and depression. I have never had a negative side effect in my life to a drug. I thought I was going off the deep end and then thought about when I started taking Allegra. It was awful. This is to put it mildly. I stopped taking it and was back to normal the next day. I got on line and read and this is pretty common. Don't let anyone tell you that it does not have this side effect because it does in certain people.
    I just wonder how many people go to the doctor for anxiety and depression when it may actually be something they are taking.
    Hope this helps someone.
