What's in the shots?: Immunotherapy for? Trees? Grass? Others? Did you go through a build-up phase or start with maintenance dose (ie; what type of subspecialist is treating you?). You can still use other medicines (like nasal steroid/antihistamine combo, Singulair, (montelukast) others) and practice avoidance. At times, re-skin testing to see if major missed allergen appears. Also would consider non-allergic causes.

Fluid behind ears: Fluid behind the ears may be Serous Otitis Media. Recommend you use Clear.ease Lozenges - one 3x a day, melt in mouth between cheek and gums. This is a proteolytic enzyme - papase and bromelein that is developed for Scuba Divers and Pilots who have ear blockage. Will also aid your "clicking." Details at www.grossaninstitute.com

Yes: Those 2 medications are ok to take together. If your symptoms persist despite treatment for several days, see a dr. For an evaluation.
