I had the worst allergic reaction I’ve ever had last night!!! Scared me a bit. About 30 minutes after I took my Victoza, I started itching like crazy and breaking out in hives. I took about 75 mgs. of benadryl, but the stuff kept spreading so I went to the ER.
They gave me another antihistamine and a shot of decadron (yes, I know the decadron is probably going to raise my blood sugar. ) Anyway, I was relieved that it worked and the hives and itching went away. It was a little scary that my husband couldn’t stay with me.
So, the big questions is
Was the allergic reaction to Victoza?
Another drug I took yesterday?
Or, the crab I ate at 8 pm…
I am calling my PCP when I wake up. I suspect I’ll have to get allergy tested asap.
Allergies like this run in my family to seafoods and medications, so who knows???
I ate a cluster of crab last night at 8 pm…???
Anybody here with an allergy like this with Victoza? I suspect they will change my meds, just to be sure.
I was grateful that I got released quickly and didn’t have to stay in the hospital at this time. I feel so sorry for COVID patients and their families!!! Just a very small taste of being in the ER alone, made me feel grateful.
