I have terrible allergies. Right now I'm taking Zyrtec and Rhinocort Aqua, and supposed to be going on a third thing at the end of next month. The best part is, Zyrtec and Rhinocort are non-preferred under Commonwealth PPO Tufts, so they're only covered 50%, i.e. $40 co-pay each. I've tried everything under the sun, and nothing other than these work. I had a really bad reaction to nasonex. The better part is, is that Zyrtec makes you very sleepy, so I'm a walking zombie. Not sure what's worse exhaustion or an incessantly runny nose and constant sinus infections.

Yay Allergies!

I was on Allegra, Allegra-D, Zyrtec, Claritin, and Flonase. None of them worked for me. In fact the first 2 almost sent me to the hospital. Got my heartbeat up too fast. I'm now on Clarinex, Singular, Rhinocort Aqua, Advair, AND I'm getting allergy shots. I get wicked bad migraines when my allergies act up....with the lack of rain we've had lately I'm hurting!

Ps...My husband has a thing for Gwen....it's ok Jason Varitek will be coming for me someday :oops:

Oh yes, big time!

At age 7, my late Parents took me to Children's Hospital for testing . . . allergic to damn near everything according to their tests.

Problem with allergy meds is that we build up a resistance and then they don't work any more. Been thru a ton of them over the years. Allegra currently works for me because I only take it when I'm "hurtin'". Nasalcrom was also prescribed for me and went OTC, at ~$15/spray bottle (all out of pocket when it went OTC).

BTW, when these drugs go OTC, our insurance companies hold a party . . . they no longer pay a dime for them and IIRC we can't deduct them on our IRS tax returns either (even if we meet the high expense barrier)!

See we live in CT so we don't get Sox games unless they're playing the Yankees, Mets, or Braves (the three teams that we get regularly on tv here)...so it's ok. Although I've been playing MVP Baseball lately..it doesn't do Jason justice haha.

Regardless, I'm praying for rain tomorrow. I want to breath again.

allergies suck! I am allergic to nearly every damn tree and pollen type from now until October. Makes for a great summer! I had been getting allergy shots which I had to stop but sometimes if I'm lucky Allavert and some good eye drops will do the trick. Also helps that I have central A/C in my house so that is the one place where I can keep the pollen out of.

Yes that and a constant pressure in my head. The only way to relieve it, is to repeatedly bang my head against the wall. :p
