Can entex La be taken with antibiotics (Amoxylline)?

I'm curious as to what is the best medicine to cure allergy?

I'm curious as to what is the best medicine to cure allergy?

No cure yet, but...: Allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) is currently the only treatment that is disease modifiying, meaning it can change how the body responds to exposure to allergens.

Benadryl (diphenhydramine) works better than both but it makes people sleepy. ...Read more
