I was prescibed Ketotifen many years ago for allergies and been on a low dose at bedtime for yonks! I had no idea that they were trialing them for possible IBS relief too. It IS interesting that if a misguided GP takes me off them('I really don't know why you are on these still')
I don't sleep as well and get totally bunged up in both ears quite quickly. I soon have to go back on them again. I don't seem to have any side-effects on them at all. They could be worth a try if you suffer from rhinitis, sinusitis or blocked inner-ears. I am on 1/2 a mg tablet at bedtime(break a 1mg tablet in half). I can't take 99% of other anti-histamines due to side-effects they give me - the usual hyper-sensitivity to things my Fibro causes :roll:

I have taken anti histamine for around thirty years, might ask to change to ketotifen can't take any asthma drugs or duloxetine, venlafaxine and others too numerous to mention.
