You might need them: Bronchitis is a non specific inflammation of the upper airways. It can be caused by bacteria, viruses and allergies among other causes. An antibiotic is usually used to treat a bacterial infection of the airways and in addition sometimes a short-acting beta 2 agonist like albuterol is used to open back up airways that have become constricted due to the inflammation.

OTC allergy meds: For multiple allergy symptoms, many physicians will start with over the counter allergy meds like claritin, zyrtec or generics. If that alone isn't working there are both prescription and non prescription allergy eye drops and many will also use prescription inhaled nasal cortocosteroid sprays.
