Zyrtec always worked better for me than claritin. I used to occasionally get hives due to sensitive skin and the doctor would have me do a couple zyrtec with a claritin, worked pretty well for that.


Zyrtec, or Zyrtec D.....This time of year is "allergy hell"!!!

use a warm/wet towel to rub your eyes/face and wash your hair with more regularity.  It works for temporary relief....

Actually man i have pretty bad allergies myself and the ONLY thing that i have found to REALLY work is regular old benadryl BUT make sure to get the powder caplets and NOT the solid tabs, Tabs take about 3 hours to even start to work for me v.s. about 45mins for the powdered caps.

Short-term: for congestion, inexpensive nasal decongestants at the drug store including generic always work. Entirely removes the issue for hours.

Long-term: move to a different area of the country. This time of year ALWAYS had big probs in NYC that lasted a month or more.


Smoking definitely can effect irritate the system, some more than others.

I have allergies. Something my doc got me to try has certainly helped. Buy some non drowsy, 24hr antihistamine and take one BEFORE you go to bed.

Like most people, allergies for me were always worse in the morning (sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes), yet taking one before bed has certainly helped.

I suffered for years until I started using a neti pot.  I use it 3x a week and have not had a problem since in years.

I have allergies and use Zyrtec D...it works for me. There are stronger Rx but they don't cover as much. Go get tested and see exactly what you are allergic to.

Also, I have found that on really bad days, a good nasal rinse works wonders.

Does anyone have swollen, itchy eyelids that are sometimes dry? 

Has anyone tried Zaditor eye drops?

Seems to be my problem this year  Undecided (or maybe the Latisse)

No, but my husband has some Patanol (sp.?) drops in the fridge for his allergies and I'm thinking of trying them.  Thing is though, they are so incredibly expensive (like $2 per drop or something ridiculous) and his prescription is limited  Undecided  Today's pretty bad though.  I want to rub them out of their sockets  Sad

The thing that bothers me most at spring/early summer is that damn "street dust/sand" also pollen sure as hell doesn't help.

My favourite allergy meds:

pseudoephedrine + benadryl.

albuterol tabs, on a bad day.

albuterol inhaler as a last resort.

I have some asthma and it gets aggravated at summer...

Thanks Princess!!

I was going to ask again about the Latisse.  Do yout think you'll get some more?

Today was my first day of using a pill of Claritin.  Late afternoon I went skating and for the majority of the time I felt like I had something in my eye.  I got home and poured water in it..(probably not sanitary I know) and it burned but was better a little.  Later I went tot he store for cookout stuff for tomorrow and I bought some of the Zaditor and put a drop in each eye when I got home.  It burned at first but then felt like that thing (if there was anything) was gone.

Thanks and thanks to all for the information.
