Artificial tears: Artificial tears are a good initial option. Restasis (cycclosporine) is a prescription medication, which is used to treat dry eyes. Claritin (loratadine) may cause dry eyes. If you have celiac disease and an IgE antibody to wheat., I would continue to strictly avoid gluten and wheat

6 to 12 months`: Allergy shots or immunotherapy may take up to a year to be effective. Sometimes additional medications to control symptoms are required, since allergy shots are seldom 100% effective.

Usually: Antihistamines are effective for mild allergies, and Xyzal (levocetirizine) should be working by the 3rd day. You may want to consider other options, such as a steroid nasal spray or eye drops, such as Patanol.
