What do you guys take for your allergies? I found that shit like claritin or allegra don't work for me. Benadryl does the job, but the drowsiness is what I dislike about it. BTW, I think superstore has a coupon for $2 or $3 off right now.

Thought it was just me who had them, seemed pretty early for allergies. Runny/itchy nose, lots of sneezing, sniffles, and itchy/dry eyes. The itchy/dry eyes are the worst because I wear contacts and I can't stand wearing glasses...

I've been taking Reactine, which doesn't last for 24 hours as advertised but kills all my symptoms so I take it anyway. $18.99 for a 30 pack at Safeway, needless to say I stocked up!

From my many years of suffering, I've found allergy pills in Canada are way overpriced. Costco and Walmart down in the states is where its at. Even with a sale in Canada, each pill comes out to be atleast 15-20cents? (I haven't checked recently).

Get it down in the states in bulk, and it comes to like 2cents per pill. Absolutely insane.

I used a nasal rinse for the first time today. Worked well for my nose but my eyes are still killing me. Felt sluggish all day.

nasonex is the best. tastes gross when it drips back, but it works wonders. only downside is that sometimes i get a bloody nose. oh well, still worth it.

I'm having nose bleeds almost daily with the allergy meds in me.. always happens this time of year. Heard all the trees in town are blooming 6 weeks early due to the warm weather, I think it's going to be another rough spring for us allergy sufferers.

I used to suffer from that crap, then I stopped consuming so much dairy products. Since then I dont' get the congestion, runny nose or sneezing

3 years ago I used to get super bad allergies, i'm also allergic to cats.. Ever since I started being more active and eating better, my allergies have gotten 80% better.. My current GF has a cat and I dont get stuffed up unless the cat rubs up against my face, but even when I pet it, I dont have any effects.. Haven't taken an allergy pill since 2013.
