My allergies drive me absolutely insane. The worst is the itching in my nose and sinuses - it feels like little creatures crawling around in there, makes my eyes water and I start sneezing and wheezing and dripping and snorting. It's horrible. I have discovered that the key is too stay on top of the allergies. I am terrible at taking any medication every day so it's my own fault I suffer because I know if I take my stuff daily as directed - it works. I take Zyrtec and Rhinocort. The nasal steroid - Rhinocort, Nasonex, Flonase - is the key if you have the itchy sneezy horrible symptoms like I have. Claritin doesn't work at all for me - it's a joke. My insurance doesn't cover any prescription antihistamines - like Zyrtec - so I go online and order them from Canada where they are generic. And if my allergies get bad enough - the only relief is taking some Benadryl and going to sleep - it's the only way to escape for me if it's to the point where I can't function - and they *do* get that bad!
Good luck!
