FACT: Allergy medications can make us tired and cause other side effects.
QUESTION: What allergy meds work for you? Have you found non-medicinal ways to manage your allergies?
I use Zyrtec (cetirazine), but I know it's not the best choice for everyone. To keep myself breathing well, I use saline nasal spray at least twice a day and Nasarel (flunisolide) when I'm really stuffed up. I also make sure to wash my hands and face a lot, stay inside when the lawn's been freshly mowed and try to avoid the flowers I know bother me the most.
