Allergy meds: There are quite a few allergy medications on the market these days, and finding the most appropriate regimen can be tricky. most people appropriately start with over the counter Claritin, (loratadine) Zyrtec,, Allegra or Rhinocort Aq. If symptoms are not well or completely controlled, prescriptions are available through a physicians office, treatment being tailored to needs. Allergy shots are last resort.
