Verna, have you tried Zyrtec or Claritan instead of the Benadryl? All are available over-the-counter now. Zyrtec works way better then Benadryl for me with a lot less drowsiness and, since its in a different class of antihistamines, when things are truly bad, I can piggy back the Claritin as well.

Caviat - I am not a doctor and I don't know your particular medical history, so check with your doctor or use your own judgement. Just wanted to pass on what has worked for me with major allergies and sinus issues to make you aware of a possibility that you might not be aware of.

Re: Antihistamines

I do take claritin on a daily basis, but the smoke is SO bad here that it isn't doing anything to cut it. :sigh: I have tried Zyrtec (when Himself was taken off of it and put on Claritin :grin:)....I hadn't thought to try it for this - thanks for the idea!

The Benedryl helps me sleep, and clears me up - but only for a day or 2. Then my body decides to break it down, and I get wired. (No sleep, but my house gets clean. :lol:)
