Benadryl is the only OTC medication that helps my allergies! It also helps me get to sleep, since I often have trouble falling asleep on my own I take one at bedtime 3-4 nights a week (two will knock me out for 12+ hours, so I only take one!). More effective than Zyrtec or Allegra for allergies, and more effective than Melatonin or ZzzQuil for sleeping. ...read more

I have tried other over-the-counter allergy medications and Flonase provides relief for majority of my sinus symptoms. The container can easily fit into your make-up bag or purse, if you need relief on the go. Usually one spray in each nostrils does the trick. Other allergy medications (pill form) have upset my stomach, with or without food. I am glad to have found an alternative, especially a spray. A good value and lasts a long time, depending on how often one uses Flonase. ...read more

So far so good. I have been taking Zyrtec for 4 years now and It does do a great job relieving my allergies. I have very little to NO more, pressure headaches and puffiness with my sinuses, same with itchy or watery eyes and the coughing, hacking and sneezing is gone. Zyrtec works, I was prescribed other allergy medications including Claritin and nothing seemed to relieve my most severe allergy problems. This did the trick and yes I take it everyday however it is much better then dealing with year round really annoying allergies ...read more

If you've tried everything else OTC and nothing has worked, spring for this. Allegra is the only thing that has remotely helped to control my 24/7/365 allergies. I take it once a day before I go to bed and 90% of the year I'm good. Of course, when pollen starts, you're still going to be a little miserable for a couple weeks. But this is the best OTC allergy medicine out there. You can also use generic for less money and same effects. ...read more

I love these products so much! These arent like other nasal sprays where it says twelve hours and they really wear off around four or five. When it says twelve it definitely means just that! The price is reasonable. The only catch is that you can only use it for three straight days and then you need to take a break from using it. ...read more
