    Okay, Ive had the worst fucking allergies I've ever had in the last week. Eyes WILL NOT stop itching, back of my throat itches, nose is all boogered up. Any allergy medicine that doesnt make one drowsy? All the shit ive tried makes me feel worse.

    Any suggestions will be appreciated

    I have tried pretty much everything, nothing works without one negative or another. I just went to plain old over the counter benadryl but I can only use it before bed because it puts me to sleep... Claritin and Allegra didnt do shit for me either.

    Honestly, the Ionic Breeze I put in here has worked better than anything, I have an older dusty house and there is nothing I can do to remove the dust so the Ionic Breeze has helped quite a bit but if I dont clean it or if I turn it off for ONE day, It's over... im back to misery - That's why I think its making a huge difference. Being off for one day and I feel like I am going to die all over again :ugh:

    I also have 2 cats.. and I am probably allergic to them but I will probably have cats forever... my Allergies are 24/7 365 days a year. Not seasonal or anything, they are like a permanent part of my life.

    My allergies are so fucking bad man.

    I live with 3 people that smoke in the house (KILLS my allergies), I am allergic to dust and we live in an older house, I am allergic to mold/mildew and we have had problems with that in the house in the past, I am allergic to pollen and its spring (pollen everywhere)...
    Man it really sucks. This fall though I am moving out of my house and going to start getting allergy shots. I am hoping that getting away from the cig. smoke, excessive dust, and getting the shots will help out a lot.

    refer to this thread for my rant of problems:

    I get 3 shots a month, been getting them for about 13 years now, makes my allergies non-exhistant. They inject pollen/grass/oak etc. into my arm each month and my body builds up a temporary immunity to it, ask you doctor about it.

    Yeah, I am going to start getting these ASAP!

    How long did you have to get them before you noticed that they were helping?

    honestly i dont remember, i was a kid when i first started...but i've heard it takes a month or 2 until you start noticing the allergies going away. But it is like i have NO allergies, every once in a while my sinuses will act up, but compared to with out them, its well worth it.

    allergy shots do work if you get them on a consistent basis...i used to get 2 shots a week (one in each arm) cause i have so many allergies. The lady said i was a pain cause there's no fat on my arms
