Discussions that mention claritin

General Health board

Definitely start taking an allergy pill before you go out. It's best to take it about 2 hours before you plan to go out for full effect. If you have problems often, you may want to start taking a daily allergy pill. I take Allegra (prescription) every day. Claritin is an OTC daily medication. Lymph nodes can swell up from the allergies.

As for ocular migraines, there is no "single cause". Many things can trigger migraines, you have to learn what your triggers are. I get migraines from the heat as one thing, sometimes a glass of wine can trigger it. If they bother you enough you can look at prescription meds to help.
