For all my fellow allergy sufferers: :D

I must say I'm impressed. It's been 100% effective. I have had no symptoms, and my allergies usually get bad. The first 2 days I experience minor side effects like fatigue, dry mouth, and it would trigger hunger pangs intermitently for so odd reason. Now, no side effects, and am having none of the symptoms , and no drowsiness. Just 1 pill a day in the morning.

If you want to try and get away from medication and try something more natural I suggest you try the herb nettle. You can get in in pill or tea form and it is wonderful for allergies. I was skeptical of it at first when a GF introduced me to it. After taking it I am totally sold on it.. Just make sure you get the ground up leaves and not the root.

Claritin D doesn't work for me.

Zyrtec worked for a while but stopped.

Allegra D didn't work for me.

Using Nasacort now but it doesn't work for itchy eyes.

Seldane worked best.

Works great for me too hammer09. Ive been taking it daily for close to 2 years now. The only thing you have to watch out for, is that it will dry you up like a prune if dont drink plenty of water.
I had been working outdoors in the scrub brush for 2 years, with bad allergies and asthma. Claritin D was the only medication I took that actually worked.

:D

I suffer from allergies year round and like Doggiedog, Claritin, Allegra, etc. have not worked for me. In fact, Sudafed Cold & Allergy works better than any of them (but still leaves a lot to be desired).

I really don't want to take drugs all the time though. I might have to try that herb nettle stuff. Where can I get it for a reasonable price in pill form?
