Allergy meds: It depends on which allergic diseases you try to treat. In general, all OTC medications work pretty much the same except for the newly approved OTC intra nasal steroid nose spray for hay fever, which works better. When OTC meds does not take care of your symptoms, it would be best if you see an allergist.

Nasal spray: The best medical regimen for treating allergies would be a combination of a nasal steroid and a nasal antihistamine.

Which is the best allergy medication that is over the counter?

Several choices: Current over the counter allergy medications that work well for most people with mild allergies are Claritin (loratadine), zyrtec (cetirizine) and Allegra (fexofenadine). One may work better than the other for a particular person, so it is not unreasonable to try more than one. Older antihistamines (benadryl) work, but are associated with more side effects, especially drowsiness.
