reactine and claritin are doing shit all for me. Got a whole bunch of nasal sprays and eye drops from the doctor. He also recommended something else, some scientific name. Chlorohydrasomethingsomething.

I have allergies, been taking pills everyday basically. They seem to work too. And when the 12hr/24hrs are up my nose instantly clogs up and i start sneezing, which means its time for another one, lol.

Reactine doesn't do too well for me. I hear Allegra is good.

Nasonex (via perscription) worked very well for me last year, but it takes a week or two before it kicks in fully, but after that it works 100% with no daily pills.

I use Allegra, it's the bomb.

Works flawlessly for me. I usually take a 12hr one at 8am, and then another one at 8pm. But I found that to be a hassle, so I switched over to the 24hr one.

I'm in the fuckin same boat.
I fucking HATE constantly sneezing, itchy eyes, and snot running out of ONE nostril at night when I'm trying to sleep.
I also feel like shit in the morning if I get the above symptoms, making me feel lazy, can't do anything, not awake enough.

I've been taking those Aerius 24hr pills and they seem to work. Expensive but works (at least for the time being).

I used to be in the same boat as you.. eventually my allergies went away. Part of it had to do with improving my exercise levels, living environment (vacuuming and cleaning up dust), changing the in-cabin filtration. Every little bit help.

I used a nasal spray called Nasacort along with the pills. Worked pretty well!

Sea salt in warm water works great as well to clear out your sinuses.

my dad gave me that the other day, but i refuse to use it. Apparently that shit is really really strong, try avoiding it if u can


fuck reactine and claritin, they dont do squad. you can only take one pill every 24hrs, man the pill lasts 2 hrs at the most! after that i go berserk!!!!!!!!!!!

I got to the point that i almost went psycho. Everytime i sneeze till my eye balls drop, i swear and curse at it. It was that bad, and it wasnt just a light sneeze too.


watery eyes, itchy eyes, sneezing, nose plugged, running nose you name it. Super annoying, over the weekend i was semi-ok, until i freaking mow the lawn. Than i went nuts...

funny how i didnt have this pollen bs allergy until it started 2-3 years ago. im allergic to cat since i was a kid, but never a dog

I find when I do the salt water thing it just ends up irritating my throat even more.

Last year I got perscription for Nasonex, which worked really well after a week or two since it solves the actual problem than just the symptoms. I am too lazy to go to the doctors this year.
