Q: I have been getting a lot of sinus headaches and talked to my doctor who has me on some new mediciation for allergies. Will this medication also help with sinus headaches as well? If I take this every day, would that dry out my sinuses to much? I'm on Neoday.
A: Neoday is in a class of medications called antihistamines. Neoday works by blocking the action of histamine, a substance made in the body that causes allergy symptoms. Sometimes sinus headaches are caused by allergies. When allergies lead to sinus headaches, an antihistamine, like Neoday may be used. Dry nose and dry mouth are side effects reported in some patients who take Neoday; however, Neoday is less likely to cause these side effects compared with some other antihistamines.

This leads to inflammation in your nose and eyes, which produces symptoms such as sneezing and watery eyes.

Q: Several weeks ago I received favorable reports on my prostate cancer. Last week, I started taking Neoday for hay fever. Today I had blood in my stool for the first time in several months. Any connection? I have also been lifting some heavy buckets.
A: As far as blood in the stool, Neoday is not really known to cause this. You may want to talk to your doctor about this so that they can determine the cause. Perhaps a hemorrhoid could be causing the blood, especially since you have been lifting heavy buckets and could have strained the rectum. The best thing would be for you to speak with the doctor.
