Wow, last Wednesday I was having my 2nd major allergy attack for the week. I was worried cause I was having some minor surgery done that Friday and didn't want to be sneezing and unable to breathe. My Husband came home and said that he thought I should just quit taking everything. For about 20 years I've been using 3 different brands of nose spray and about 5 different anitihistamines including Benadryl, Astellin and Allegra 180, on a daily basis. I never had a day where I was completely free of my allergic reactions. Blocked nasal passages, sneezing, sinus pain etc. I listened to what he had to say and thought to myself, well, I couldn't possibly feel any worse. I quit that night, I have never felt better, I can breathe through my nose(slightly stuffy sometimes). Last night, I started sneezing, I thought well, here we go again. I blew my nose a couple of times and everything was fine. I'm telling you, I just don't get it. Do you suppose that antihistamines can cause a catch 22, the more you take them the more you need them? I am soooo happy that I tried giving it all up and I will never take anything again! I can actually breathe through my nose! I'm not tired during the day!! It has been 5 whole days.
