Health Q & A with Jeannie Mar

Q: What can I use to treat my seasonal allergies?
A: Pollen levels are extra high this year, and those that suffer from spring allergies may be experiencing uncomfortable symptoms more than ever before. We have good news for you! Our pharmacists can now prescribe prescription strength SUDAFED! That’s right – if you don’t have time to make an appointment to see your doctor to get your prescription you can come see one of our pharmacists instead. Find relief from those all-too-familiar spring allergy symptoms: sinus pain, nasal congestion, headaches, chest congestion and coughing.
There are also lots of over-the-counter options available to treat allergies. The trick is to find the right product for your allergy symptoms and begin treatment before you start to experience them. Nasacort and Flonase nasal sprays are now available without a prescription and are effective at treating inflammation involving the nose. They help decrease sneezing, runny nose and sinus pressure symptoms. Oral antihistamines, such as Benadryl and Zyrtec, help by decreasing your body’s response to allergens and can be taken alone or in combination with nasal sprays. Eye drops are also available and can help by washing out allergens from the eyes or provide relief to dry itchy eyes.
