There are 2 ways to look at this. My dermatologist and family doctor both agreed the shots once every 3 months for me instead of shampoo prescriptions, benedryl, cortisone salve, nasal sprays, creams, oils, etc. etc. etc. was better for me. A shot a month and live a normal life not to mention saving money. Now after the prednisone is done the allergies have returned worse than ever so back to my new doctor and I am using all that stuff in and on my body again. I will take the shot once every 3 months any day over all of that. I have spots of itchy eczema ALL over, itchy scalp , dry itchy skin, sinus problems, need benedryl to sleep all nite etc. My oldest daughter has rashes and itchy dry skin and will not go and get a shot and feel good again. She has doctor phobia I guess and I hate seeing her scratch til she is bleeding. Now if this weather would warm up so we could get out comfortably and get things done. 0 degrees but minus 7 wind chill. Needless to say the furnace running does not help.
Hope you find a solution for yourself.





each of us have to decide for ourselves

I have used raw honey to treat some of the symptoms. It provides some temporary relief, but does not get to the bottom of my issues.

I have problems with sinus infections as a result of my allergies. I am currently just using flonase and the nettie pot when necessary. When I have hives, or other symptoms I will treat with benedryl and eyedrops. I have had shots in the past, but I am getting to the point if I can live comfortably the less I put in my system the better I like it.

We all need to do what works for our situations.

I think I have read about every allergy medicine known to man including honey. i finally had to go on the allergy shots so I could live some kind of normal life. Mine include skin, sinus, and have been back this winter so I will be going to see my doctor. I hadn't needed them for awhile but they are back. I was seeing a dermatologist and family doctor who decided I would be better off with shots than pills, special shampoos, creams and lotions, not cheap either and the shots were once every 3 months and I could enjoy life. We will see what this new doctor thinks. I was born with allergies and 2 of my 4 children have it too. I hope you find something that helps you.

I was taking shots every 3 months that my doctor and dermatologist decided was best of me rather than prescriptions for pills, shampoo, salves. etc. etc. It was great til my doctor lefto work with weight management and I had to go on prednisione but I am off it and want the shots back so i can have a normal life. Been a miserable summer and winter will be no better. Using benedryl at nite to sleep and still wake up sneezing, sneezing all day, have a prescription for zyrtec I take one during the day but it isn't strong enuff at nite. Of course this summer had to be a bad one for foliage and now will be fall pollen. I have had enuff!! emoticon

I am medication sensitive. Sometimes I use benedryl. However, my regimen is to rinse my nose with saline, and spray with flonase. I am taking something called Quencertin which is supposed to help block the histamines. So far, I haven't been having the sinus headaches I was previously.

I have tried Bragg's and local honey before, in 6 oz of warm water...I call it my hot cider drink. I do believe it helps some. I am about to go back on it for Spring and early Summer pollens. Anything that helps me get outside is worth it...I cannot take any more medicine- already taking zyrtec at night and flonase in the morning.

My GP offered a self-injection protocol based on your allergies. They teach you how to do it and you have to "report in" once a month with your tracking log. It worked great!! My symptoms decreased, especially the post-nasal drip that causes me to constantly clear my throat and wake up at nights choking on phlegm. (No, I don't have apnea.) Then, my company switched health care providers and I was no longer able to do this. Now, I rely on Veramist, Claratin and Muscinex DM to help me control the post-nasal drip.

Trying every day to be the best I can be!

I have been using Reactine for a while which has the same medical ingredient as Zyrtec and it helps a lot. However I recently read that regular/long term use of antihistamines can cause weight gain because it increases hunger.

Has anyone else found this to be true? I am going to try to go off of them to see if it helps if my allergies are manageable.


Copy/pasted:
Histamine is a neurotransmitter which, in addition to mediating the inflammatory response, and thus symptoms of allergies, suppresses appetite. Thus, antihistamines, which work by blocking the H1 histamine receptor, may remove this appetite suppressing signal.

Not surprisingly, a paper published in the journal Obesity suggests a possible link between the use of anti-histamines and body weight.

I have to go back to the doctor for a check up because i still take 5mg of prednisone and i would love to get off it and go back to shots. The allergies have changed thru the years and the prednisone may be keeping some of it away. I am bothered at nite especially, woke this morning with my face all blotchy and puffy, goes away once i am up and then have the drippy stuffy nose and sneezes. Never can figure out how the sinuses can drip and be stuffy at the same time but is annoying and so is losing sleep. I do take the Zyrtec but benedryl helps more but I try not to take it. My oldest daughter is constantly covered with rash and scratches in her sleep til she draws blood, hands dry and crack and then it goes away from the hands and comes back. I am trying to get her to go in for a shot, drives me crazy to see her so miserable. I tell her you didn't listen to be when you were younger still don't listen. going to make me itch watching her. Benedryl helps a lot but she won't take it unless she is on a day off. emoticon

Years ago, I had allergy shots (others in my family are still on them) until I developed and allergy to them accompanied by a major systemic reaction. They tried a number of new batches. It seems I lack a fairly common antigen and made lots and lots of antigens against the ones in the injections. That means I mostly skip flu shots and other vaccines. My other choice for anything serum based is taking lots of antihistamines to lessen the reaction some. My rabies titre (yes I did react to it, but got that vaccines anyway) and other titres from earlier vaccines still look good, so boosters aren't needed as long as I still have a good titre, so hopefully I am vaccinated for life.

I was getting cortisone shots every 3 months which worked the best after years of OTC meds, nasal sprays, salves, oils etc. The shots were the best but now needed to go on prednisone so too much med in that field, got rid of one thing and allergies were able to get worse. Interrupts my sleep, itches back, etc. Hoping I am done with prednisone and get back on the shots, need to have labs done to find out shortly. I am taking zyrtec at nite but it is not strong enuff to make it thru the nite.

I am allergic to everything outside, so I just get shots every 2-4 weeks. I also tested positive to 55 foods, but after doing an elimination diet, I am actually allergic to 5. Since I found out, I have lost 47 lbs! Then, I got a puppy at Thanksgiving. He got me up 2-4 times a night, so I was too tired to get up at 4:30 to work out. Then, since I was tired, I depended on coffee and sugar to wake me up. Now, he is sleeping through the night and I need to do something to keep from buying a bigger size pants! I thought I would try joining up with a team here to keep motivated and to learn better ways of dealing with things that throw me off.

One thing I do which helps is facial massage, pressure point massage, and neck and head massage. These things tend to relax the sinus pressure and release tension helping reduce inflammation.

I take a lot of prescription medicine but I still have problems. I use peppermint oil which seems to help a lot. I need to use the saline spray more frequently. Had problems with the nasal rinse. It was really uncomfortable and had problems with it draining out for up to a few hours afterward. I use phenylephrine(OTC) to reduce draining and when I am stuffy, I use guaffensien/generic for Musinex(OTC). I have used oregano oil in the past in a dilute spray from Puritan's Pride. I didn't think it did much. I also have used a roll on from Spa Room which unstuffs me a bit. I need to use the humidifier more since it is winter here. I had a sinus infection for three months and was on antibiotics several times and also steriods. So, I can't say as I am very successful. However, I don't give up. Can't, I would be permanently stuffed. So, I guess, a combo of holistic and medical things keeps a somewhat balance. The prescription medicines I take are Azelastine nasal spray, Azelastine eye drops, Fluticasone Propionate/Nasonex, Montelukast/Singulair, Ceterizine/Zyrtec, and Chromolyn Sodium(as needed). I also have an epipen for shrimp, bees, and wasps. If anyone has suggestions, I am open to them!

I also use OTC nasal spray, but stick to the non-medicated saline spray, generic from CVS. Herbalife has two products that help breathing. They are Schizandra and Roseguard taken together 3 times a day. I even take them just before I go to bed to help me sleep.

I was getting shots once a year, using neti pot regularly, nasal spray, and otc allergy meds. Just was diagnosed two weeks ago with allergy asthma. Have an inhaler now and have not needed any meds since. I go to a allergist this week for first time. Not sure why I waited this long to go.

My doctor suggested I change it up every now and again, so I went from Zyrtec, to Xyzal, which are very similar, and change back now and then. I also went back on Claritin and Allegra for periods of time but found they did nothing for me anymore.

I have taken allergy shots once a week, since I was about 1 year old.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11

Claritin D if I'm having a really bad day, regular Claritin if not. Also started using a nasal spray called Fluticasone which is a generic of... something I can't remember now.

Works wonders, I was able to actually go outside when the Cottonwoods were blooming and not be miserable.

Claritin works pretty well. But you need to take it on a regular basis

Zyrtec works best although I found a Vicks Qlear Quil works well too. I agree with the one gals post - any day that is migraine free is an EXCELLENT day!

The shots are a God send. This is my best spring since I quit them 10 years ago. Started back on shots in March and I cannot believe the difference.

Shots work best. I actually need to get back into my doctor's office to get another one. I was using claritin for awhile, but that quick working. I'm using Allegra right now. Not sure what I'm going to get when I go to the store tomorrow, because I don't know if I can afford Allegra until next week.
