What do you take for your allergies?

Do you always take the same product, or do you mix them up, take more than one?

I'm trying to stay off of Singulair, but still have bad allergies and some asthma. I'm looking for ideas.

  • I don't have allergies but I deal with a lot of elderly who do, it seems their favorite in Allegra.

  • I take Claritin. It's less effective than some, but the side-effects are almost non-existent for me. On other things, the side effects are always too much to deal with if it's not an emergency.

  • I read an article today that said honey and cinnamon powder was the cure for everything.

  • I vary between claratin and allegra. Neither make me drowsy, which is key. My Dr. recommends allegra along with a topical steroid when I have skin issues like contact dermatitis every spring and fall.

  • Generic Zyrtec.

    Answer by QuinnMae at 5:05 PM on Feb. 12, 2013

  • Depends on how bad they are. I usually go back and forth between Claritin and Zyrtec, but I also use Sleepytime Sinus Soother tea at night. When I use the tea, it's either that my symptoms are mild enough I don't need the meds, or the meds aren't quite doing the trick and I need a little extra boost.
