What medications should I stop before the visit?

The main medications that should be stopped 48 hours before seeing Dr Ali are antihistamines, in order that skin prick testing may be carried out.  To help, here is a short list of common antihistamines: Clarityn (loratadine), Telfast (fexofenadine), Zirtek (cetirizine), Benadryl (acrivastine) and Piriton (chlorpheniramine) .  There are a lot more antihistamines on the market, many of which are also in cough/cold remedies.  Please feel free to call and ask if you’re unsure about your medications.  If you can’t manage to stop your anti-histamine medication, don’t worry, there are alternative tests available or you can be seen and the testing undertaken at a later date.

If you have asthma, try not to use your reliever (salbutamol; blue inhaler), as you will be asked to perform breathing tests and the result may be affected.

If you feel that your allergy is caused by foods please contact us to discuss bringing along small samples of these to your appointment for testing.

What to expect at your appointment?

Initial consultations last for 45 minutes, allowing time for Dr Ali to undertake a thorough history taking, examination and testing, followed by a diagnosis and education on your disorder (a self-management plan) including training on any devices issued. Follow-up visits are 20 minutes and may be required for outstanding test results or monitoring of your condition.  Following each consultation, a full medical report and management plan will be sent to you and your referring doctor by post.

 

Please come 5 minutes early to allow time to complete the hospital registration form.
