He would feel better for 7-8 hours till the effect of antihistamine would last. He had started developing side effects of antihistamine like drowsiness.

When angry, he would feel like hitting opposite person, but he would control his anger. He had become irritable since last 2 months due to Urticaria. He was anxious about his children and their education. There was no major stress related to work. As he was experiencing side effects of antihistamine, like drowsiness, he was not able to concentrate on his work. That was making him more irritable.
