I have absolutely horribleeee seasonal allergies...I take Allegra in the morning and then again at night but even that can`t slow down the runny nose, watery eyes sneezing, etc. a good portion of the time...I can`t even mow my lawn because my eyes get itchy, watery and all, not to mention the non-stop sneezing that occurs afterwards.

i`m not trying to demean the use of Allegra here, because i do notice that the symptoms are considerably worse when i forget to take them, just venting on my allergy issues :-[

most allergy meds are over the counter now - allegra, claritin and zyrtec or their generic counterparts. If they don't work and using local remedies like eating honey from local bees, avoiding the allergens in the first place etc does not work, then see your doctor and get on something else. Steroid nose sprays like flonase (there about about 6 different kinds) work better than the antihistamines typically for the nasal symptoms plus they don't cause drowsiness. If that fails, try singulair. Allergy testing can be done but they are a pain both physically and how frequently you have to get them and can be expensive and just like the medications, don't always work so I would consider those as a last resort.

You can get smaller purifiers but they only really work if you are standing right next to them. I used to have one on my nightstand so I could sleep. A higher quality furance filter might be worth it too. Also no fans, they just stir up everthing.

Agreed. Make the environments you spend a lot of time in much more allergen free.
