Or you have seasonal allergies that really only flare up once in a while when the pollen count is particularly high. Even the second-generation ones like Claritin have been available over-the-counter (and in generic, which works just as well but is much cheaper) for years, and they’re great options for short-term relief of allergy symptoms.
But if you’ve got daily symptoms all season long, please consider a nasal steroid!
It pains me to see so many people taking antihistamines every day for months.
