Seasonal Allergies???

So for the second time ever I have had a sneezing fit that has lasted all day. I feel crappy and tired from all the sneezing and fluid in my head. I just treat it like a cold.

I happen to have an appointment with a new doctor. She asks how long I've had seasonal allergies. As far as I know I don't have seasonal allergies. I did think it was weird that I would be fine one moment and then a sneezing mess the next.

So those of you that have seasonal allergies? Does it sound like what I'm describing?
What works for you?

Allergy meds. You might want something like Zyrtec or Claritin.

Re: Seasonal Allergies???

Yep, seasonal allergies. The sneezing fits happen when the histamine is released. Where do you live? If you happen to be in Texas, there is an amazing homeopathic remedy called Texas Knows. I would bet there are other companies that make the same sort of thing for other areas, also. It has saved me while nursing, since I couldn't take the typical OTC stuff.

Yep. My are more than seasonal so i take year round singular (prescription) with claritin back up for heavy seasonal times. Flonase is pretty good for coughing and sneezing and is OTC now but if you can get a prescription for the generic which is not OTC yet its way cheaper.

My dh has had seasonal allergies forever and he didn't find anything that worked for him.

Did the Zyrtec and Clairitin work right away or did you have to try different things?

I have some crunchy places near me so I'm going to go in and ask for recommendations.

I really don't want to take any meds let alone all year meds. I didn't think to ask about the prices. She said I could try over the counter but I didn't know prescription could be cheaper.

Yes, Spring was the last time this happened. I feel like a dope for not figuring this out earlier.

I'm always hesitant about taking anything because let's face it I'm usually pregnant or nursing. lol

Thanks for all the yeps! My dh's allergy symptoms are so different that I didn't recognize my own.

Today, I just took a Sudafed because that's all we had in the house so I could get my ds to his class. Made a big difference in being able to function because as you can imagine sneezing incessantly gets in the way of real life.


So I hear Claritin, Flonaze, Zyrtec so far. Which one are you using and why?

I take Benadryl or sudafed because they don't make me drowsy. I just think they work better than Claritin or Zyrtec but Claritin worked ok for me.

It's gotten bad the last couple years for me. Sometimes the generic antihistamine didn't do anything and had to take regular meds. Otherwise for the most part the generic ones from Walmart or Rite Aid Loratadine seems to work fine.

Local Honey... Raw if you can find it ... Do a little everyday with tea, coffee, on toast, whatever... It's suppose to help with pollen/seasonal allergies. Claritin & benydryl are usually safe for pregnancy.

If you are indoors... Check/change your air filter on your heating/AC. (Depending on your system ...like seperate heat from AC... Dust might have collected over the summer & it's getting blown around when you first use your heater for winter)
