Airborne Allergies

Who's got em?
When do you get them? What season?

And what do you take if anything? (over the counter that is)

I had to kill a tickly cough so I took some robitussin cough and allergy before bed. it worked last night, so I figured I would take it this morning....

and I WAS HIGH AS HELL!

Mental note on that one!

Claritin usually works good for me with no side effects at all. But not for the itchy tickly throat that makes you cough.

Allegra or functional generic equiv (Fexofenadine) as an ongoing preventative to tone down your aversion to them. (Yes, prescript).

Emergency inhaler (Albuterol) for as needed moments (The allegra drastically reduced these episodes over time).

Benadryl (or generic equiv) when it goes above that.

...remove the source of the allergen or avoid it. Take frequent showers/baths and change clothes to remove the allergens from your person.

...that's for the allergen angle.


For coughs in general... add humidity to your enviro. Drink warm drinks or soups and stay hydrated. A good sprits of a throat numbing spray does wonders too. The more moist the mucus (staying hydrated), the easier/better the cough.

I've been drinkin as much as I can and its helping. And I've been hitting up Starbucks. That helps too.

I actually feel better today.

Good that you're feeling better, but sugar and caffeine do work against your hydration (they make you pee pee more). It's easy to compensate back for it though and the warmth of a good drink really helps (humidity up your nasal passages as you drink it). The mental pick me up and 'relaxing' while drinking helps the overall tension too.

Hope it continues to improve.. It's windy today so I hope it doesn't slide back for you.. but winter's the best season by far for allergies....
