Phlegm accumulation after drinking alcohol or eating sweet food. Can Avil be used regularly?

I am constantly developing phlegm accumulation if I take alchohol or for that matter any sweet items in big quantities.I also sometimes have an itch sensation on my body.I was suggested by my friend to try Avil25 when recently I had an itchy sensation.To my surprise I found the itchiness disappear very soon and also the phlegm vanish.I would like to know if I can continue to use Avil25 regularly as it also helps me sleep good.

You may have a condition called urticaria and suphites in alcohol (wine) sometimes tend to trigger this urticaria that responds very well to antihistamines. This is why Avil worked well.
It is a highly sedative antihistamine and if it works out well for you, you can take it as required. But do NOT mix Avil with alcohol as it can be a potent mix and therefore not given to patients who take alcohol at night regularly.
You can take a non-sedtaing antihistamine for day time urticarial eruptions like cetirizine, levocet or fexofenadine.
I hope that was useful.
