  • Zyrtec and its generics are best taken at night b/c they cause drowsiness. You can try Claritin or Chlortab ( 4 hour non drowsy as well). For your eyes you can try an allergy eye drop. I wish you luck, but I really do know what you are going through as a chronic allergy sufferer myself.

  • The best I have used is Allegra. They sell it over the counter now. GL.

  • zyrtec works well for me but makes me loopy, allegra is pretty good too, and get some mucinex to help you cough up the other junk that is "stuck"
