My first post. I have been reading Karl's writings for a few years and have learned a lot. I have a ragweed allergy with mild symptoms - runny nose in September. A few years ago my PCP, who apparently wanted to reduce my facial tissue usage, suggested that I start taking a Loratadine 10 mg tablet once a day starting August 1 and continuing this protocol until September 30 each year. I have been following these instructions for a few years and have not felt the effects of ragweed since. This means that I always have a supply of Loradatine 10 mg tablets handy.

In 2017 I had to undergo chemo for non Hodgkins Lymphoma - six 5-day rounds. The final medication of each chemo round was a medication that was intended to make the body jump start its immune function because the other chemo meds lowered the immune system's functionality. This medication did have one nasty side effect - temporary pain in a patient's lower back and upper femurs. During Chemo round one, the RN who administered this final medication told me that other chemo patients had dealt with the bone pain by taking Loratadine 10mg. I experienced the bone pain and took Loratadine which stopped the bone pain in a few days.

As an experiment for the next chemo round I started taking Loratadine 10 mg prior to the day I received the immune system enhanced medication. Bingo. No bone pain and an example of off-label use of a medication.
