Best OTC seasonal allergy meds? Ive seriously never in my life dealt with allergies like this. From full sinuses and swollen soft palate and upper jaw pain a few weeks ago. To now I'm constantly blowing my nose, sneezing and my ears feel clogged. I'm going to use my neti pot but geez I just want to stay in bed all day. TIA ๐ŸŒŸ

Claritan and Zyrtec work best for me. Zaditor eye drops for itchy eyes.

I took Allegra for my first time last week, it did make me sleepy but I felt better after just 1 dose.

I use Claritin and my daughter uses Zyrtec. Really depends on u everyone responds differently. I agree though allergies this yr are crazy! I can't stop outside without taking meds!

Claritin. Benadryl doesn't do anything for me

Claritin D works best for me. The 24 HR kind is more expensive and you MIGHT need to get it from the pharmacist when you do but that's the only thing I could take most of my life. 12hr doesn't even cut it for me.

Thanks ladies Cali^Mom Heather Elli B JVP Yessenia Ortiz Aline C Ronnie Rey. Ive never been like this in my life and I'm always outdoors so itโ€™s definitely an annoyance. It doesnโ€™t help that I cut grass last night.

Also when it's really bad I'll also take allergy nasal spray and mucinex. You can ask for a shot from the doctor but the symptoms can come back after a week and the shot makes you groggy for a day

Mama S asks I could really use some kind words right now. I'm 28 weeks pregnant and I've been physically and mentally miserable. I don't feel like my stomach can stretch or grow anymore, my ligaments hurt, and I'm always short of breath. Mentally, this darn virus is getting the best of me. I've been in quarantine for at least 9 weeks, (I've seen a few close people, distance of course) and I feel like people just don't get the fact that I can't be fully around them due to my high risk pregnancy.
