@Chris No. That it can help transport other respiratory infections which cause other respiratory infections.

comment Long-term effects of antihistamines on mind and CNS
I think you should split this question to many separate questions and then provide links between them: Ph.dyn antihistamines, their penetration of BBB and Pharmacology; long-term study about Ph.dyn antihistamine (take 2nd gen etc cetirizine) and Epidemiology in some standardised setting; same long-term study with some immunosuppressed patients; effect of 2nd gen antihistamines on cognition ... (think some parameter); etc. Personal medical advices are not provided in this site, since there are so many factors which we cannot consider publicly here and many other reasons too.

comment Long-term effects of antihistamines on mind and CNS
These questions are ok for me but cannot answer them at the moment. Voted to reopen. However, very big chunk here and too much side tracked. You could reformulate your questions since the pharmacological sides of antihistamines are well known. All antihistamines pass BBB (1st gen most, 2nd gen less while 3rd gen very very little because antimetabolite of 2nd gen). These are Pharmacodynamic! Histamine can be released from all tissues ("hist"). So the drug primarily affects in all your tissues. Long-term effects have not been studied in no standardised situation. Immunosuppressed case neither.

comment Effect of closed eyes on balance?
@Bez It is based on his intuition, not just opinion. There is much logic in his thinking. No reference need to be done if the user does the thinking themselves. Very well known phenomenon also so I think this is recalling event from his deep memory and wanting an explanation for it. Completely acceptable question here, I think.

comment Effect of closed eyes on balance?
@Bez No. I think this is an interesting question which is related to the neuroscience and the functioning of small brain. Some neuronal pathways are closed when you close your eyes. Some people also cannot do this when eyes are closed - it is impossible if you have severe damage in your inner ear etc caused by falling.

comment Can Omega 3 Fatty Acids prevent chest pain in periodic Atrial Fibrillation?
Actually, I read somewhere that high doses in the case when the patient feels flip or flop in the chest can actually worsen atrial fibrillation. So the admission of this in high amount should be avoided in such cases. No positive effect shown. The elevation of the sleeping position is the way to go until the patient feels go unless no other approach made for the particular patient.

comment To define the total Resistance of Systemic Blood Circulation
@Ryan Good comment! I cannot agree with the analogy to pulmonary tree and blood circulation because of inflammation and other processes in vessels. The turbulence absolutely should be taken into account in the definition. It actually inside the energy term S(x,y)(t,f) which I have not explicitly defined here but where the separation of different flows is done. Actually, I do not define inflammation into resistance; I used inflammation's effect on permeability (T) for water and gas in the definition.

comment Clonidine's adrenonergic nature?
So I propose that clonidine is not adrenomimetic but adrenolytic (i.e. adrenonergic and sympatholytic in one word). Do you agree? - Agonist mean to bind etc adrenoagonist to bind to adrenoreceptor. Mimetic means positive ANS effect and/or mimicing the behaviour of the stimuli from ANS. Adreno - just adrenoreceptor where the neurotransmitter is acetylcholine. Sympatho is about if the drug has sympathetic effect and its nature (sympathopositive (-mimetic) vs sympathonegative (sympatholytic i.e. decreasing concentration of acetylcholine etc in case of adrenoreceptor in a synapse)).
