I have allergies as well. grass, trees pollen, cats, feathers, dust mites etc.... I've used every OVER THE COUNTER option there is.
I finaly got fed up, went to my family doctor and was refered to an allergy specialist. I was retested for the first time in 20 years. He perscribed Nasaqort AQ. I've been useing it for about 3 weeks and it WORKS! I can actually go to someones house with cats and have no problems. It's a nasal spray, 2 squirts up each nostril before bed is all it takes. Mind you it has a list of side effects as long as my arm...nose bleeds, sinus infections, respritory inflamation/infection, headache, dry mouth etc. I've been lucky, no side effects.

im alergic to like 4 different trees and dust mites, cats, dust mites and other seasonal stuff
plus i have asthma so when my alergies act up my asthma gets horrible.

at first i took claratin, that didn't work so i took zyrtec w/ nasacort, then i changed from zyrtec to zyrtec D (because i got very congested.)

one thing that has been helping a great amount was going to an alergist and getting shots. it is a very good idea. they help your body get used to the alergens

lately iv been very sick, my doctor gave me all these wierd meds, plus he switched me from zyrtec-d to alegra-d because zyrtec was making me sleepy during the day

so in all my normal medications are (not including my sickness meds)

foradil (Asthma)
pulmacort (asthma)
nasacort AQ (alergies)
singulair (asthma and alergies)
alegra-d (alergies)
viagra (jk)

I will ask my doctor about that stuff. Do you ever get itchy eyes? Does it help that?

^

wut the alergy shots do is tells your body to stop attacking the alergens, so it doesnt cure the alergy, it just gets your body used to it.

the sad part is that for some people the shots dont work
also if you have a bad reaction you have to take an epipen
