Hi! So I currently take Benadryl acrivastine antihistamines for my hay fever as I suffer really bad from it, as well as Avamys nasal spray and Clenil Modulite inhaler... I suffered horrendously last year and keen to avoid going the same way this year! My hay fever started up a few weeks ago, although quite mild, however the last week with the warmer weather has been awful! I am insanely congested, I’m sneezy (not good with Eustachian tube dysfunction in one of my ears!) my eyes are constantly watering and itching, and I woke up early hours of this morning coughing a little so my asthma is clearly starting to flare (dreading to think how bad I’ll be by the time it really starts!)...... I’ve been on my nasal spray anyway for my ear, and been taking my acrivastine 3x a day, eye drops and rinsing my sinuses... but wondering if it’s time to change or even alternate antihistamines as normally the acrivastine is really good in terms of sneezing and helping with my eyes but seems nowhere near as effective as they usually are (although they are helping as I can tell exactly when I’m due one!)? Just wondered what antihistamines other people use/take, I have an appointment next week anyway with a gp about my ear so will discuss then, but I just wondered what other antihistamines people find helpful? I can’t take piriton except at night as it wipes me out (wondering maybe to even try acrivastine in the day and piriton at night to see if that helps? Or should antihistamines not be mixed together?) Loratadin and certrizine have never helped before so don’t really know what else I can do!! Was also tried on montelukast but I was so sick with it!
