Possibly: Could try claritin, allegra, or zyrtec although none will help reduce the congestion. If nose stuffy add decongestant such as sudafed. Saline nasal rinses also helpful. If you have extended times of allergy such as several months consider nasal steroids as they control allergy symptoms better than oral antihistamines.
