Default Allergies!!!

Allergies are kicking my *** the past couple of days. The oak trees are leafing out, and the green/yellow dust is everywhere. Hate this time of year. Is there anywhere besides a desert that allergies are not bad?

I am usually down and out by this time with allergies but it has been very minimal so far.
Sorry y'all are suffering, I do feel for you.
I have thought about doing some type of allergy shots or something as mine can get so bad in the spring.

I feel your pain couldn't barely sleep the other night. I got back on my allergy season regimen of constant Sudafed and whatever other nasal sprays and pills I can pop. Riding around the ranch and mowing the lawn with a mask has seemed to help.

My nephew recently got on Azelastine for allergies and said it has changed his life. He had tried pretty much everything else. It's prescription only.

My wife switched from Zyrtec to Allegra. It's only been a couple days, but it seems to be helping.

Allegra everyday and Benadryl on the bad days. Sometimes eat four or more in a day.

And your eyes stay open? I am certain if I took four benadryl in a day my *** would have to go lay down.

Texas cedar fever drops. Game changer.

Also local honey, and when it gets real bad use the Navage. Not fun, but Itís worth every penny.

When this happens, switch it up with Allegra !
Seems like you will get immune to Zyrtec after awhile.
Should only have to change for a week. Kind of like a reboot.
Then go back to Zyrtec.

This is what I do. I also add a 12 hour Sudafed every so often when things are really bad. What is weird for me is I never had allergies until 8-9 years ago.
