  • One (1) week before your skin testing appointment: loratadine (Claritin), cetirizine (Zyrtec), fexofenadine (Allegra), desloratadine (Clarinex) and levocetirizine (Xyzal).
  • Three (3) days before your skin testing appointment: Diphenhydramine (Benadryl), which includes over the counter cough and cold medications containing diphenhydramine, and sleep aids such as Tylenol PM or Advil PM.
  • Two (2) days before your skin testing appointment: Antihistamine nasal sprays (azelastine, Astelin, Astepro, Patanase) and allergy eye drops (azelastine, olopatadine, tetrahydrozoline, naphazoline).
  • All types of inhalers can be continued. Steroid nasal sprays (such as Flonase, Nasacort, Rhinocort, Nasonex, Qnasl) can also be continued.
