    Drinking a lot of water worked well for me. If that doesn't work, I use Benadryl.

    well, theres like two kinds.
    the kind that you take when you need it and the kind that you have to take for a few days before it takes effect and it builds an immunity.
    i want the one that builds the immunity.
    does benadryl do that?

    the only shit that REMOTELY works for me is this stuff called clortrimecton
    Chlor-Trimeton

    i've taken literaaly every other pill on the market and this works the best and is over the counter.

    I've never tried that, but as far as Benadril, Zyrtex, Clariten, etc. I believe they prevent but you have to take them daily.

    I don't think any drugs will help you "build immunity" to allergens, you'd pretty much have to keep using the medicine. I could be wrong though.

    Last year when I went to the doctor, they gave me a shit load of Claritin samples; like enough for 3 weeks. Maybe your doctor can do the same.

    well yeah, you still have to take them everyday otherwise i wouldnt have allergies.. duh.
    lol
    but it kind of builds a temporary immunity because you can miss a day or two and not have any problems.

    its not too bad... no worse than advil really.

    i take it only when its really bad. all these pills tend to make my head want to explode.
    so its either sneeze 312312 times a day, or have a migraine. i hate spring.

    I used to take Zyrtec, back in the days when it was prescription only. It works great but be warned that it makes your skin very sensitive to sunlight. If you're outside a lot you need to be careful. Claritin works well too, not sure of the side-effects however.

    Still beats 20 years ago, I had allergies to everything under the sun when I was a kid and I would have to go for a weekly shot. Good times.

    i use take the generic form of claritin (loratidine). no drowsiness or any adverse side effects for myself and it works 12 hrs.

    and yes you can build tolerance to the allergen with shots. similar process to vaccines and it takes a while, 3-5 years but it helps.

    i just developed my allergies a few years ago, and a few years before that i developed seasonal asthma as well.
    i guess im a late bloomer. lol

    i bought this generic shit from rite aid yesterday.
    100 pills for 10 bucks aint bad.
    but i have to take it every 4 to 6 hours :/
