His medications include loratadine and low-dose corticosteroids cheap 40 mg strattera overnight delivery, which were prescribed by his primary care doctor, as well as ibuprofen and a daily baby aspirin. Which of the following interventions should you recommend before performing epicutaneous testing? The patient should discontinue all medications 1 week before testing B. The patient should discontinue loratadine and steroids 3 days before testing C. The patient should discontinue loratadine 1 week before testing D. The patient should discontinue loratadine, steroids, and ibuprofen 1 week before testing Key Concept/Objective: To understand the use and preparation of skin tests Of the two most common tests for allergy, skin testing and serologic testing, the former is the more rapid and sensitive. The premise for allergy testing is the interaction of an aller- gen with specific IgE that is either mast cell-bound or basophil-bound. To elicit a positive reaction, degranulation of mast cells or basophils must occur and histamine must be released. Therefore, medications that inhibit histamine release and activity must be dis- continued before testing. These medications mainly include antihistamines; however, other medications, such as tricyclic antidepressants, may have some antihistaminic activ- ity as well. Most antihistamines need to be discontinued 1 week before testing; however, diphenhydramine and chlorpheniramine can be discontinued 3 days before testing. Medications such as corticosteroids do not inhibit the immediate-phase response of anti- histamines and therefore can be continued. Aspirin and ibuprofen have no effect on degranulation and histamine release. A 35-year-old man comes to your office with symptoms of nasal congestion and itchy eyes and throat.
