Try eating a little local raw honey every day. I know it sounds folky, hippy new agey, but I started it a few years ago and after a while I was able to stop taking my prescription allergy meds (Allegra). I still get a little reaction occasionally - right now tree pollen is out and making my nose run a little - but its not nearly as bad as it used to be. And honey tastes a lot better than Claritan......

I was skeptical at first, but this really works for me and even more so for my son, who really suffers from dust and pollen allergies:

Might try a Zyrtec - supposedly works faster, longer and better than Claritin …

I agree with Drew. Use a neti pot before pumping obnoxious chemicals with significant side effects into your body. They work great for me. Make sure to use salt water not plain water though, or you'll be sorry.

They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Yes, occasionally. My physician said it would be okay on bad days.

This is a good question to ask Mac users. Is there a doctor in the house?

different strokes for different folks, as to their reaction/tolerance to allergy meds, but zyrtec in the AM and a 60mg allegra in the PM works for me. claritan never worked as long or well for me, but Baby Buzz seems to work best on claritan. on real bad days, I'll take the allegra earlier (late afternoon) and a 2nd one at night. fwiw, I tried doubling up on the zyrtec AM & PM, which only worked about two days before over-drying the brain, then again w/ half for the PM dose, which took like three days to zonk the head. since the zyrtec/allegra combo works, we stay w/ it. maybe supplement your claritan w/ benedryl and see how you tolerate it, or if it helps. just don't overdue it whatever your choice. good luck.

Davester,

I'm with you and Drew. Yes, allergy meds help. Singular is my most recent attempt at using meds to control allergies and it's not doing much. However, using the AYR sinus cleansing system offered a huge improvement. Allergy meds help control the reaction but a cleansing system will literally get the crap out of your sinuses. That's huge! I considered a Neti pot but decided the AYR squeeze bottle system was more appropriate for me because my nose is perpetually stuffed. Trust me when I say a neti pot wouldn't get through the stuffiness. I have to blow my nose at least three times before power washing my sinuses with the AYR system.

I take the 24 hour one. At night, I take a swig of children's benedryl liquid.

It looks like it is about to rain, it sprinkles...and then nothing. Then the wind blows it around. It is supposed to storm. If it does It will bring me much relief. Then I can clean my porches and screens doors again.

I find I cannot tolerate the neti pot.

Instead, I have used this now for several years, and it's been great: [www.brucemedical.com]

I moved to Hawaii and now have no allergies. You could try that.

Claritin made me feel really strange, and wasn't effective.

Had better results with Xyzal, a cousin of Zyrtec.
