I have had chronic hives for 8 months and have ordered rupatadine in the hopes that it will help better than the 11 meds/day I have been prescribed. I am now down to 5 atarax per day but usually the hives are there just not so itchy. Any experiences w/ this drug and hives would be appreciated. TY

I have been taking Rupatadine for over two weeks and can't believe the difference in my sensitivity management and quality of life. I suffer from IgE responses, delayed reactions, immune complex responses and T-cell mediated reactions that cause severe vasculitis, as well as the usual allergic symptoms, and the medication has reduced my symptoms greatly. I purchase it through a Canadian pharmacy since it has not been approved by the FDA. It was developed and released as generic fifteen years ao, so no company can afford to sponsor it's review and approval by the FDA. We in America are missing out.
