Allergy shots can help as can oral allergy meds. There are eye drops that help a great deal also.

I'm 17weeks pregnant &have bad allergies. Can i take equate allergy relief contains cetirizine hydrochloride. Would it reduce my breast milk.
Check wiht OB: While in general Cetirizine is ok to take during pregnancy, you should really as a rule discuss all medicines you take during pregnancy with your ob, whether they be prescription or over-the-counter. And yes, it can reduce your milk production, but that is only if you are taking it when you are actually nursing, so that is not really a concern at 17 weeks gestation. Breath easy! ...Read more

Need alternative to zirtec for allergy-induced asthma. Allegra and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) don't work, nor albuterol asthma inhalars. Claritin gives me nasal pain.

Allergy shots: antihistamines only cover up symptoms and don't cure anything. Allergy shots treat the cause and that is why with successful immunotherapy you can get rid of antihistames.

Whenever: there are no contraindications to alcohol in using Zyrtec (cetirizine) (certrizine) which is a non-sedating antihistamine. Especially if you are truly talking about ONE beer.

When people are that focussed on drinking, I think it may be an indicator of an underlying problem. Think about it. ...Read more

Benadryl (diphenhydramine): Most allergy medications are anti-histamines. Older ones like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) easily cross into the brain and block histamine. Histamine in the brain is a wake promoting neuro-transmitter. Histamine in the skin, lungs, causes typical allergy symptoms. Newer generation anti-histamines (claritin, allegra) do not cross as easily into the brain and are not usually associated with sleepiness although all can. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
