      I have to get it every month for six months they say.  It cost 1500 a month but i was lucky to have insurance that pays 90 percent and the rest was covered with the exhale program so no cost to me thank God.  I havent had any side effect at all so far and i'm praying that I won't get any.  My health is very good besides urticaria so maybe it makes a diffrence.  What is your story

      Oh thanks for answering so fast - Im in Dublin Ireland and cant find anyone in Ireland onine that is offering it or even felow sufferers. I got Cholinergic Urticaria unfortunatley when I was in a relationship about 3 years ago and I would get all the hives on my stomach and lower back after we had sec (sorry for crudeness) but they would go away initially after an hour then they started getting worse and everytime I had a hot shower or sunbathed or had hot tea etc and now they are constantly all over my abdomen and lower back....loads of other side effects with it like cuts at the side of my mouth and alot of sever anxiety, I had been gien fexonadine 180mg but rarely took it and never really noticed a difference. To be honest they are not itchy and raw all the time only after sweating in any form but they are visibly horrible I think thats why I am anxious too.
