Track Expiration Dates for Antihistamines and More


Antihistamine Expiration Notifications Sent Weekly to Your Inbox—Starting 2 Months Before Expiration


When you live with food allergies, your doctor may prescribe an antihistamine to treat a mild allergic reaction, in which a mild symptom affects only one body area. An antihistamine cannot control a severe reaction and is no substitute for epinephrine. An antihistamine may be used in addition to epinephrine to alleviate some of the symptoms of an anaphylactic reaction (e.g., like the itching from hives.)


When you buy antihistamine for your emergency kit , be sure to take note of its expiration date.


The Allergy Force app offers a 'FREE FOREVER' feature {one of many} that tracks your Antihistamine Expiration dates and alerts you to refresh your antihistamine medications before they expire.

Demo of Antihistamine Expiration Tracking


This demo shows you how this feature works, starting with a tap of the white 'medication bottle' icon at the top left of the Home Page below. For more detailed step by step instructions, keep reading.




Step-by-Step Overview


1. When you land on the Home Page, you will see a white 'medicine bottle' icon at the top left of the screen. Look for it.


Tap the white 'medicine bottle' icon and you will land on the Antihistamine Expiration Info page.

2. At the top of the new page you will see 'Instructions'.

3. Underneath the 'Instructions' reveal you will see TOGGLES.


  1. When you tap them (to turn them 'ON'), you choose how you want to be notified about upcoming antihistamine expiration dates.

  2. When you turn them 'ON' they turn dark blue.

  3. We recommend that you toggle all three 'ON'.

  4. Notifications commence two months before an autoinjector expires.


4. Adding antihistamine medication is easy.


  1. Just identify the antihistamine by a unique name (could be by location, or by the person responsible for the medication).

  2. Then, select its corresponding expiration date.

  3. Be sure to tap 'Done' after choosing the date.

  4. You can add and manage expirations for up to FIVE different antihistamine medications.

Screenshot shows how to add medications to the list of medications by giving them a unique name and setting their expiration date. Works to track expiring antihistamine medication or other medications (like asthma meds) too.

5. Depending on which notification methods you toggled 'ON', two months before your antihistamine expires:

  1. Notification emails will begin arriving in your inbox once a week,

  2. The white 'medication bottle' icon at the top left of your Home Page will turn YELLOW and stay YELLOW until you update the expiration date for your new antihistamine medication,

  3. Plus, you'll receive weekly reminders under the 'Notifications Bell' at the top right of your Home Page.

Screen shot of the 'Home' page of the Allergy Force food allergy app shows the icon of a medication bottle that used to be white has now turned yellow indicating an antihistamine medication is about to expire and reminding you to refresh the medication.

6. Expert User Tips:


With FIVE spaces for tracking medication, you can use this feature to track antihistamine medication for multiple people in your household.

You also don't need to limit yourself to just tracking antihistamine medication. For example, you could use extra spaces to track asthma medication expirations, too!
