What is your go-to solution for seasonal allergies?

HELP! I'm an allergy newbie!

My husband and I have been on zyxal since before it was a valuable over the counter. It is the only thing that works for me and Texas hill county allergies are pretty bad here. I also flush with a neti pot and when its super bad Flonase. Even my kids with bad allergies use Flonase and they do well on Claritin.

My husband and daughter have really bad seasonal allergies. My husband takes Claritin daily and Flonase. My daughter uses Children's Flonase. I myself prefer Nasacort spray because it does not have as strong an odor as Flonase.

What I have found is of the most common OTC allergy meds, one of them will work better than the other for you as they are all different medications. For me, Zyrtec works best, for my daughter, Claratin. You may have to experiment a little bit.

Zyrtec and peppermint oil are your bestfriends!

If you get sinus headaches from your allergies, I use Vicks Sinex Severe.

Zyrtec for 6 months and then I switch to Allegra for roughly six months. I also use Flonase twice a day! Vicks helps with allergies as well’

I used to use Allegra until it did nothing for me. Then I switched to Claritin, and ever since I have not had issues!(Knock on wood!!)

Calritin works great for my granddaughter! When her allergies/hives kick in, we give you one and shes good to go

Claritin daily, NeilMed nasal rinse bottle when it's really bad, and Flonase nasal spray when neither of those work.

Zyrtec Allergy Relief is something that always works for me. I have been taking it since I was a little kid. Ask your doctor to prescribe it to you, it comes out cheaper. Nothing else seems to work on the same level. However, if you have problems with a nose, then a nasal spray is a must. Take it once a day. It doesn't work right away. You must give it a week or two to feel the effects.

Sudafed with psuedophedrine is the only thing that works for me.

I use Loratadine and Flonase sensimist (the light blue one) it’s easier and lighter on my nostrils lol

My allergies are heinous and the only thing that brings me absolute relief is Advil Cold and Sinus (if you don't have the sinus pressure you can get away with Allegra). You have to purchase this at the pharmacy and you are limited to 1 package every month.

Zyrtec but I always just get the generic brand and that always works for me

Since allergies are usually related to an overload response, I usually incorporate a spoonful of local honey into my daily diet to help acclimate to local pollens, then I also will drink a tea made of ginger root, Apple cider vinegar and honey for a few days to help with any lingering inflammatory response!

Zyrtec it is! But the generic version is so much cheaper!
