EWWWW, you want me to spray crap up my nose??!! LOL I would deal with the congestion if I could still take the bendryl or reg. zyrtec for the sneezing and running nose.
The nurse that did my diabetic education said no to those too?? I will be seeing the dr. later this week, hopefully she will green light the zyrtec. I know that the last time I was in to see her, (when diagnosed with T2 3 1/2 weeks ago) my blood pressure was border line high and THAT can be because of the allergy meds...so I am trying to abstain until she at least says my blood pressure is back in line.
