I never had allergies until a few years ago, but they suck.

Last night and today I am dying - can barely breath, eyes watering/red like crazy.

Anybody recommend some good over the counter stuff to take? I've got an interview today I don't really want to have to cancel, but don't want tolook like an idiot at either.

Don't buy the Pink box Benadryl. The box I posted is
. I take itright before I go to sleep (knocks me right out) and then when I wake up, I feel great.

It used to hit me pretty bad until I hit around 19-20. Haven't had many problems with it at all this year..so far

My buddies and I were talking about this at work the other day. Wild temperature/weather swings plus ridiculously high pollen count equal some terrible allergysymptoms.
Every day when I've woken up for the last week, my throat and mouth have felt like I was eating dry vagina the night before. Turrible.

*knock on wood*, No.

Zyrtec has been the BEST OTC allergy medicine I have ever taken. I mean, I still have the occasional sneezing and running nose, but I'd take that any dayof the week over headaches and itchy eyes. What helped me big time, is taking the Zyrtec pill right before I go to bed. I had previously been taking it when Iwoke up, but chaning things around has made me feel 100x better....

For me personally, Zyrtec doesn't work as well for me as the Benadryl I posted, but co-sign on the method of taking it right before I go tobed.

I've never had allergies in my life. But these past couple of days have been rough as hell. I decided to search NT and see if any posts had been made.

I went to a holiday barbecue today, and it was outside. I couldn't play spades. I couldn't play cornhole, I couldn't even talk to my cousin'swife's sorority sisters. I looked like a damn **!!%#$ out there. I broke my personal record for most sneezes in a row. I cranked out 11.

I just took some of my nieces children's benadryl and I'm hoping it will get me through the night.

The only good thing about this bull @*#+ is that I no longer play sports. I couldn't imagine doing 2 a days with this @*#+.

And cosign on having allergies during the swine flu not being a good look. Everyone is afraid of you.
