Not efficient: Consider a virtual consult to discuss allergy symptoms, diagnosis and effective treatment strategies. Gold standard for diagnosis skin testing by an Allergist. However, there may be more efficient otc remedies/avoidance strategy to employ in meantime. Brompheniramine/cetirizine can be associated with increased anticholinergic side effects like sedation. Regular pseudoephedrine use not advised
