Discussions that mention claritin

Allergies board

Hi all,

This is my first post. I'm sure this has been asked before, but after searching I can't seem to find anything. My husband has terrible allergies, and they don't seem to be seasonal. After months of prodding, he is finally going to see an allergy specialist next week. They mentioned that he couldn't take any anti-histamines for 7 days prior to the test. She is sending more info, but it hasn't come yet. I stupidly thought Claritin wasn't an antihistimine. Yeah, no. Not that it really works anyway, but still. Any suggestions for anything that will help him even a little bit over the next week?
