I am suffering from right side chest congestion & pain. I have found pain relief with Levocet 5 (Levocetirizine). But the chest congestion & pain reappears when stopped. Please advice.Last Updated - Fri, Mar 16 2018
After Lipid profile test, my triglyceride is 281, VLDL - 25, LDL 159, HDL 31 and Cholesterol 215 on.
Asked the doctor and he advised me to take Storvas 20 and Levocet 5 (Levocetirizine) at night after dinner and also advised physical exercise 60 minutes per day. These medicines were continuing for two months. After two months I stopped the medicine, again above problem were seen.
Now another cardiac doctor advised me Tonact TG.
New test Results-
LPT - triglyceride is 182, VLDL 36.40, LDL 68.60, HDL 29 and Cholesterol 134.
Now I am continuing Tonact TG but my chest congestion & pain has not stopped. Everyday two to three times chest pain in right side.
I have found that the pain relief in Levocet 5 or other allergic medicine when this medicine is stopped then the pain reappears with same symptoms.
Please suggest should i continue this medicine or not and I also want to know how long should I continue this tablet, if it has no side effect and symptoms are there.
You can surely continue taking Levocetirizine for the pain you have. But what is more important is to get a full check up of the lungs to see the cause of this pain. If the pain is related to another problem, Levocetirizine will only hide your symptoms while the problem may continue getting bigger inside.
I suggest getting a CBC test and a Chest X-ray to start diagnosing your problem. Consult with the results and we will then decide the best treatment options.
