Been battling allergies for the past week. I don't have sinus issues at all. The worst symptom is that it affects my eyes. Everything is blurry no matter what I use from Zatador antihistamines drops to Refresh moisture relief drops. I also take Flaxseed oil daily. take Claratin and Zyrtec only if I have to as this further dries out my system. I am certain there is a lot of crap in the air! Got any good hints or home remedies for Allergy Eyes?? My eye Dr. office is closed. (Family Vision, town Center/Dr. Anderson)
I've found that I must take two Zyrtec or Claratin for either to be fully effective. I just buy Dollar Store or Walmart generics.
Have you tried Wal-Act from Walgreen's? It's the same formula as the old Actifed. The antihistamine in it (Triprolidine) is quite potent. It's behind the pharmacist counter because of the pseudoephedrine in it.
The old prescription antihistamine Atarax is potent as well.
Allergy eye drops work for me with all the symptoms described above. I do daily nasal washes as per doctor's advice and they really help me! Throw in some antihistamine, decongestant and I'm functional. My allergist and internist both told me the allergens have been worse since we haven't experienced any substantial cold weather these past few years. It's just the weather cycle we're in right now. This will change eventually as does everything in life.
It has been a terrible several months for us for allergy..sinus, runny nose, cough, sneezing...now with the mold issues ugh! We normally take zyrtec in may and June and are fine. Not the s year. Even our cat has issues itching and scratching with fur coming out..thought she needed as flea bath ..vet said no fleas..allergy.. Only treatment for her was cortisone shot
