I searched through the forum and didn’t find a dedicated thread for allergy sufferers. Figure this thread could also cover those with food allergies / intolerances as well. I live in Austin which has a reputation for being one of the worst places to be for people with allergies.
I’ve tried just about every over the counter allergy medicine there is. It all works for a little while but I start feeling off and kind of nauseous when I stay on those meds for an extended period. So I use them as little as possible.
The one med I go back to for really bad days is pseudoephedrine. It’s the one over the counter med where have I show my ID to the pharmacist. For my daily use though I’ve went to using non medicated sprays. Which are okay. I recently found one that uses capsaicin in the spray which stings but has worked the best for me out of all the rest. I’m trying a new one that uses Xylitol and didn’t know much about it. I did find a study on which seems promising. But will see how it works in the long run.
