ALLERGY SEASON MAKES THE FALL MONTHS MISERABLE FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE. Whether it’s pollen, mold spores or ragweed, this is not good time of the year for a lot of southeastMissouri residents. 50 million Americans suffer from allergies according to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and immunology. What causes your problems is what the experts call a histamine in your body. That’s where anti-histamines come in, like Benadryl, Zyrtec and Allegra. Nasal sprays can be used for more severe allergies. If it seems your medicine isn’t working as well as it used to, it may be time for a change. No matter your situation – and especially if you’re thinking of changing your medication – you do need to check with your pharmacist, especially if you’re taking other, prescription medication. There are times certain kinds of medicine can make you sicker than you are now.
