I read somewhere that a large number of drug overdoses in the US are from antihistamines. I also have allergies and almost everyone I know is allergic to something or the other. Antihistamines are the best medication for allergies and they're so easy to get to because they are sold over-the-counter. This is probably why we use it liberally but we have to be careful.
I once almost overdosed on antihistamines when I was suffering from a very bad sinus allergy. I was so unwell that I didn't keep track of my doses, I kept taking more because I wasn't feeling better. Thankfully, my husband warned me that I had already taken enough of the medication.
I don't know what would have happened if I had overdosed. It might not have been dangerous but I don't ever want to take that risk.
Has anyone else accidentally overdosed on antihistamines? Were you okay afterward?
