Ugh, I hate nasal sprays... they're just not my thing. Plus, using one, I once pinched my lip in the applicator. It hurt like hell. I used Naselcrom though... I'm not a big fan of those Nasonex commercials with the talking bee who has a spanish accent. What's up with that? Well, besides bumble-bee man on the Simpsons.

I think I have allergies, but I haven't done anything about them yet. I should look to get something, but they aren't that bad.

I'm 28 and just began noticing it about a year ago.

I agree with this too; generic works just the same now that it's available.


unfortunately, the wife likes expensive things. :-C

Allegra-D and Zyrtec both work for me, but there is a price to pay.

About an hour after I take one, I get really tired and my head starts feeling like I'm doing whippets that never stop. I get overcome with drowsiness, yet it's impossible to lay still enough to actually go to sleep.


Claritin does the same thing, but to a MUCH lesser degree. I can actually function with those.
Sometimes it takes a crazy person to see the truth. If so, I'm a freaking lunatic.
