Spring Allergies

Lets face it some of us who live in Vancouver are unlucky once spring time hits. Doesn't help at all with all the flowers and cherry blossoms blooming. I've got some pretty bad allergies - to name a few runny noises, eyes are itchy and recently headaches.

What does everyone take?

I take usually reactine and I've used some nose spray which supposedly is really good

+1 on flonase, but you should try to start taking it regularly before allergy season--it "builds up" protection

when it gets real bad, zirtec works well for me

I took claritin a long time ago, but it stopped working for me. I tried reactine but after a whlie it was useless. Now I'm using Aerius and it is still working so far.

For myself, reactine still works if I take one before I go to bed and when I wake up. Then for most of the day I'm hay fever free!
