    Ive read reports of people who have used things like cetirizine for a long time and upon cessation they ended up having huge rebound effects. Itching all over body. Lots of sneezing?

    Is this a rebound effect?

    Any natural powerful mast cell stabilizers people suggest that wont have any rebound effects?

    i am looking for something that doesn't inhibit muscle growth as well. Ive read luteolin is a great mast cell stabilizer but it inhibits pge2 which is necessary for muscle development


    Even better if someone has a suggestion for a topical mast cell stabilizer i am all ears.

    Not powerful, not natural, but very helpful: low dose H2 + H1 antagonists. I use 10 mg Pepcid AC plus 1/2 Benedryl morning and bedtime. The combination has been tremendously helpful for my chronic cough. Most allergy meds by themselves don't work for me long term.

    A doctor diagnosed me with probable MCAS and put me on montelukast a year ago, but it gave me headaches and I couldn't tolerate it.
