Safe but: if you need that much medication to control your symptoms, it may be time for you to consult an allergist. I also suspect that even the combined medications do not offer you complete relief.

A 37-year-old member asked:

What allergy eye drops can I purchase to relieve itchy eyes due to the high pollen count during the summer?

Antihistamine: While lubricating drops help some, antihistamines drops do the most for eye allergy symptoms, including itching & watering. There are many over-the-counter antihistamine products to choose from. Older products may be combined with decongestants which decrease redness; however, overuse of these products may cause increased rebound redness. Plain antihistamine drops are your best bet for itching.

A 34-year-old member asked:

My child have fever and difficulty in breathing while sleeping. Should I just use a nasal spray and decongestant.?

No: If your child is having fevers and difficulty breathing every night, and this is an ongoing thing, you need to see your pediatrician asap. If you are asking about a problem that's been going on for a couple of days, he probably has a mild viral illness. Give lots of liquids, a little tylenol (acetaminophen) for the fever, and if it persists, see your pediatrician.
