Question: Reaction between antibiotics, antihistamines, and smoking?

 seanleycras - Mon Mar 10, 2008 5:48 pm

I wanted to know if there can be any interactions with the following: The Antibiotic Ratio-Azithromycin,
Reactine, and Cigarettes. I am on both medications and am interested to know if smoking could have any serious
effect on any of these.

User avatar Hello,
No significant reactions between these have been reported. However, if you are taking antihistamines, smoking is not going to help your breathing any.

Best wishes.
