Need help deciding which product to use?  This is what our Pharmacist Sarah has to say:

For regular seasonal allergies there are 3 main choices:

        1. Claritin (loratadine)

        2. Zyrtec (Cetirizine)

        3. Allegra (Fexofenadine)

All last 24 hours and are equally effective for most people. It varies by individual which one works best for you, usually I recommend loratadine as the first choice because it's the cheapest.  Cetirizine can cause drowsiness in about 30% of people so if that occurs be sure to take it at night time!

Sometimes, if you've been taking an allergy medication for a long time you'll find it becomes less effective over time.  In this case, switch to a different drug and you should be able to find some relief!  As time passes you may be able to use the original drug again. 

Fluticasone nasal spray is a steroid and therefore should only be used if oral medications are not helping enough.  Steroids can decrease the effectiveness of your immune system and therefore fluticasone may lead to a greater risk of sinus infections.
