    My son was diagnosed with allergies to everything except animals and mold. I am very concerned about the amount of medication the Dr. has put him on. It includes 2 zyrtec, 4 sudafed, 2 benedryl, flonase 2x/s a day, and 1 singular each day. He said he feels very warm after taking the morning dose. The Dr. said it wouldnt be from the medicine and said he can not decrease the medication if he wants to feel better and continue to be seen. Does this amount of medication seem accessive to anyone?

    You may want to share this question on our Allergies Community , this is a good question for that community. But I do want to remind you, that a second doctors opinion can always be had. You may want to follow up with another doctor for this question.

    I hope that helps and your son feels better soon!
    Good Luck and Good health, Chrissy WebMD Community Staff
