Allergy Skin Testing.
Allergy skin testing is used to identify the substances that are causing your allergic symptoms. In order for your allergy skin testing to be as accurate as possible, all antihistamines (Claritin-Loratadine, Allegra-Fexofenadine, Zyrtec-Certirizine, Xyzal-Levocertirizine), except for Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) should be held for one week prior to your initial or testing appointment. Benadryl should be discontinued at least 48 hours prior to your visit. Histamine-blocking antacids should be discontinued at least 24 hours prior to your visit. Other medications to consider include tricyclic antidepressants, monamine oxididase inhibitors and beta blockers (check with your primary care phyisician to ensure that it is safe to briefly hold these medications). Please call our office if you have further questions or concerns about temporarily discontinuing your medications.
NOTE: Not all allergy medications need to be held prior to skin testing. You may continue your asthma inhalers or nebulizer treatments (controller and rescue), montelukast (Singulair), zileuton (Zyflo), and theophylline.
