fast question before my wife dies of all the allergies

August 5th, 2011 (06:05 pm)

Okay, say you were a person with the worst outdoor allergies in the world, and you were having to spend the weekend in a place that is basically made out of mold. What would you do to make this survivable? Can/should/would you combine Allegra-D with Claritin, Zyrtec, etc.? Do you have any homeopathic voodoo recipes to share?

Read the packages. I'm not as familiar with antihistamines as I am with pain medications, so I don't know which ones might be the same thing but with different names (or blends, like how Excedrin is really just aspirin, Tylenol, and caffeine), but as a rule, as long as they don't have the same active ingredients, you're fine to mix them together.

One of my allergy-prone friends swears by her neti pot, which she uses to pour salt water through her nose and thus flush out her sinuses. Apparently this works really, really well to get rid of any accumulation of irritants in the nasal passages. I am also given to understand that it's one of the weirdest sensations in the world.
