I have narrow eustachian tube and have not infected fluid in my ears. How do I get rid if I can't take allergy meds due to anxiousness effects?

In brief: Gum

Often chewing gum may create a pumping type movement of the eustachian tubes and help to remove some fluid.
There are also those who recommend xylitol...Either as a nose spray or chewing xylitol gum.

In brief: Different meds

Plain antihistamines, like Claritin (loratadine) or zyrtec, should help.
If not better, be seen by your physician or ent, and you may need a tube in your eardrum to let it drain.
