There are many over-the-counter and prescription medications that can be used to treat your symptoms of seasonal allergies.
If you have any questions or concerns about your medications or your allergies, talk to your pharmacist or doctor.
If taking Benadryl® (diphenhydramine), do not drive or operate any machinery until the drowsy effects have worn off.
People who have heart disease or high blood pressure should not use this medication. Please talk to your pharmacist before taking oral decongestants, to make sure they are safe to use.
Do NOT use Otrivin®, Drixoral® or Dristan® nose sprays for more than 3-7 days. Using these nose sprays for more than 7 days can actually make your stuffy nose worse.4
Steroid nose sprays
Steroid nose sprays start to work in the first day or two, but it is important to use them every day during the allergy season to get the full benefit.
