  • I have bad allergies..My allergist prescribed Allegra 180 for me. it's now over the counter and works great. If you are congested you can get Allegra D.

  • I went and bought generic allergy medicine from Fred Meyers--it's the FM brand called Kroger. It actually works, I freaked out cuz I was so happy. Do you have a Fred Meyers?

  • Claritin D. It works well.

  • Yes, yes, and yes. We had rain for 3 weeks and then wind and the pollen count is horrific. Unfortunately the thing that works best for me is Benadryl which knocks me on my butt. I take Allegra too, but it's not touching it. I see the doctor every year for a Kenalog shot, but I don't want to have one this early. No fun and I am cranky, tired, head achey, and lack all motivation. Did you know allergies can actually cause you to run a fever and have migraines? I went to an allergist a few years ago who told me that. It's amazing the symptoms allergies cause.
