In brief: Before you go

Looking for another allergy medication, i would keep the one that works best for you and take it diligently everyday with a steroid nasal spray twice daily for a month to see a big difference with just burst of meds here and there and only when you feel like it.
If you have already done this, then it is time to see your doctor, possibly referral to allergist or ENT depends on what the problem is.

I would see an ENT doctor now. If you have a "post nasal drip" without a stuffy nose or nasal discharge you could have reflux rather than allergies.

In brief: Avoidance

If you know your allergens, avoidance is the best treatment.
If your use of standard antihistamines isn't helping, your doctor has many other treatment options to help, including leukotriene inhibitors or referral to an allergist.
