Are allergy pills supposed to completely relieve your symptoms? I still wake up with swollen eyelids every morning and puffy bags...

In brief: Allergy

If antihistamines alone are not entirely relieving your symptoms you need to take steroid nasal sprays that deliver a tiny amount of steroids to the inner lining of the nose.

In brief: Allergy Pills

Allergy pills are not affective to control al the symptoms of allergy, like nasal congestion, itchy eyes, cough and sneezing and headache.
You have to use them in severe cases with inhaled steroids and/or eye drops.In very difficult cases you may have to use short course of oral steroids, in bad allergy season.If that is not successful then a referal to an allergist to get immunotherapy is desirable.
