    Taking this for allergies and fluid in my ears. It does dry up the fluid, but I am so lethargic and sleepy when taking Lodrane that I don't feel human. The Dr. wants to continue, but after mailing in my last refill, Medco wrote and informed me that this is being taken off the market. I'm very glad that it is. I was planning on stopping it. Recently it has made me feel much worse than u ... Show Full Comment

Glad it helps someone with simple allergies.. but if ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    i have recently decided that lodrain makes me have tachycardia or a racing pulse. It also makes me hyperactive to the point that others have noticed. Most disturbing of all is that i am quite sure now that it directly effects my memory in an adverse way for up to 48 hours after i take a pill. When i take it i have difficulty naming common objects and remembering the names of people places and thin ... Show Full Comment
