Yes, but: For what do you seek relief? If you have nose/eye/ear symptoms related to allergy, then there are more effective treatment strategies compared with oral antihistamines. An Allergist can help with this. If you have uncontrolled hives, might also see allergist or dermatologist, but using higher doses of long-acting antihistamine is common.
