Weird…the original post isn’t showing up. I’ll try again…
Basically, my allergies are driving me crazy. Claritin doesn’t do anything for me. For the bees who suffer from allergies, what do you use? Allegra? Zyrtec? Something else? Any recommendations would be helpful.
So far I’ve found the best allergy meds to be the Walmart brand, Equate. The extra-strength non drowsy ones? They’re in a white box, with an orange foil package. And they’re amazing, I take 2 and I’m good for 12+ hours.
Alavert; all the way!!!
It is the only thing that works for me, and I swear as soon as I put one of those little tablets in my mouth, it starts working right away.
Different allergy symptoms respond better to different medications. For example, itchy eyes might respond best to an eye drop and congestion might respond best to a decongesant. I would recommend going to the pharmacy and talking to the pharmacist about the best options for you with your situation.
Zyrtec. It takes care of my stuffy nose/ sneezing within about 20 minutes.
It’s really expensive, but wow it works.
I have terrible seasonal allergies. I was a long time benadryl (twice a day) user and it was usually worked well unless I was outside for a long period of time. I got prescription Flonase and it didn’t work at all for me and made me nauseous. I just switched to Zyrtec and it seems pretty good. Good luck! I feel your pain!
I take Zyrtec and usually it’s great for me, but this season has been killer! Nothing helps :(. I have been hearing that it is an unusually bad allergy season this year, so we’re all in this together!
I have crazy allergies to everything from pets to food and seasonal allergies to.
I find aerius the best! 24h pills!
Zyrtec is a godsend during allergy season! There is actually an generic brand at Sam’s club that I also use called cetirizine (it’s an off-brand Zyrtec) You get 350 pills for around 17 bucks! And the best part…they actually work! Well for me at least. I hate allergy season…ugh
i use zyrtec for bad days and i also have a spoonful of local honey in a cup of tea each day. i read that adding local honey helps decrease seasonally allergies so i tried it and it’s worked for me so far. something about the pollen and bees. it’s certainly worth a shot!
You guys are the best! Thanks so much!
I have terrible nasal allergies where I get into sneezing fits for at least 20-30 minutes sometimes. It is horrible. I recently went to the doctor and was prescribed nasenex and astepro nasal sprays. I found out I am allergic to the nasenex unfortunately so I had to stop taking it and the astepro seems to help, but I can only take it at night cuz it makes me sleepy. As far as OTC meds go, Sinex tablets really seem to help me.
