Not for allergies: H2 antagonists partially block acid secretion in the stomach. They don't do much (if anything) for allergies. I would use either oral H1 antihistamines (zyrtec, Allegra etc.), nasal sprays or eye drops. If these are not effective I would recommend seeing an allergist and considering allergy shots.
