Hello ritch;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Ebastine is not contraindicated in g6pd patients and so can take it as an antihistaminic for allergic conditions.As for Spirulina it is a dietary supplement and is not supposed to be taken by people who suffer from phenly ketone urea but for g6pd no study regarding contraindication so please consult your doctor.The better thing is whenever you are in doubt better avoid it.
