Oh man….I take Allegra-D 24 hour tablets. I also take Astelin and Nasonex nasal sprays. I really really have to take prescriptions. Mold is my #1 allergy, followed by pollen and stuff like that. I didmn’t have them until i moved to Missouri. Stupid state =(

i’m sorry i don’t have any recs off the top of my head, but do you have an allergist? i’m very allergic to dust mites and kept thinking that i had a permanent cold, but it turned out to be allergies.  they put me on nasaqort, and it’s been awesome. i bet they have something prescription strength for eyes as well. oh i’m sorry about that, so annoying!!

Claritin D 24 is the only OTC medicine that works for me. If what you are currently using doesn’t work, perhaps you need to check with your dr to see if they can prescribe an alternative. It’s possible that your system is so used to the medicine that it has grown immune to it.

I take regular Allegra. Allergra D was too much for me, dried me out bad. Funny how just a little different variety makes a big difference. But, in the past I have used Allerest over the counter. That seemed to help. Usually keeping my nose un-stuffed is the key, so I also use Afrin when I want to be able to sleep and breathe.

i take allegra d and have an rx nasal spray, but otc saline spray works really well when i’m congested (aka every dang morning–stupid dust mites!), and laying down with an ice pack over my eyes/nose works wonders on my sinus headaches…

Also make sure that you are stocked up on Vitamin C.
