I have allergies in the spring and fall. I tried nasonex, (mometasone) it gave me a chest cough. Singulair doesn't seem to be working. What else can I try?
Other options..: I would recommend getting a re-evaluation by your doc. Steroid nasal sprays are frontline treatment and there are many available.

Antihistamine such as zyrtec, allegra, claritin, xyzal, (levocetirizine) Clarinex with/out a decongestant can be added if nasal spray not adequate. Allergies can cause misery and I feel your pain. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
