My mother is hypersensitive to a lot of medications, but seems to be okay with caffeine and novacaine.

You might ask around and see if there is a specialist in your area on this - probably an internist but I don't know.

Have you tried nasal inhalers? Atrovent is an inhaled nasal anthistamine. Inhaled corticosteroids can keep inflammation of the sinuses due to allergies down. These may be more tolerable for you than oral meds.

When you start to get a cold or nasal allergy, you may want to rinse your sinuses with a combination of distilled or purified water and a little salt and baking soda. This can help flush out some of the mucus so it doesn't hang out and affect your lungs. I find it really helpful.
