Hayfever help please!

Sorry if this post gets duplicated. I kept getting a blank page when trying to upload on my mobile. So trying here on a desktop..

Could someone recommend the best or a list of the better tabs that I can take for my allergy/hayfever. I know benedryl isn't good so I will avoid that one but there must be a few that seem to not affect RLS that much or perhaps no or little symptoms.

My nose is streaming and I am getting desperate for some sort of relief.

Thanks in advance.

Just to say - I'm in the uk so some USA remedies might not be available here. If uk people could respond that would be great.

Wow, I was worried about you. Has your RLS improved any?

Hi Tred, yes ! I've been on ferrous iron tabs - high strength ones for around 10 days now and I have NOT had 1 attack!!! It's amazing. Loads more energy too!

Spoke to doc. He was the one that gave me the iron tabs. I said I want to come off these anti deps. As I am on the lowest dose he said to just stop taking - full stop! So it's been about 10 days (like the iron). I've had no side effects yet. I know I may get something. But I have had codeine addiction and weaned off that and put up with the side effects. So in agreement (doc said hey you managed to get off codeine) so I thought I'll go for it.

I realise it will be weeks before things kick in. But I'm going for it.

I'm in a different place now to when I went on them.

I have a pack in my cupboard just in case I fail.

Ferrous fumerate 210mg tabs

Docs said twice a day

The ones you mentioned was a minuscule dose. So I think I just needed the heavy duty stuff as I have low iron anaemia.

Not constipated really either. Some stools a little difficult but otherwise it's totally fine.

Things are kicking in now big time and feel I'll fail this time

CAN ANYONE help and let me know meds (AD) that are safe for RLS or at least the ones that most say are ok.

Only uk meds please . Pissed off as thought I could do it but the side effects are beyond what I thought would happen.

Fed up.

I know there are two- I think Claritin is one of them. But your pharmacist should know.

Or check on rls-uk.org.
