Hi -- Oldest d (14) has school weekend field trip --

 

I know we have kicked this around before, but can someone please remind me which OTC meds for pollen allergies have worked???

(She reports that Zyrtec activates her symptoms.) Thank you--

some say quercitin or allermax and that has quercitin in it with NAC and other stuff

i'm not sure if my ds does well on that..my ds is a ticcer.

we have done allergy shots and pollen has gone down below 100...soooo.

based on a friends report ..she swears by garlic a couple times a day

and i think C is suppossed to help too

so as of now(again we just reached maintanence) and just dropped singulair, and a short lived attempt on zyrtec

just doing c and garlic

Claritin and Zyrtec both activate my DS, and Claritin stopped working for him anyway. I have given him Benadryl if he really needed something (that was this fall pre-diagnosis, but he had PANDAS at that point, and it did seem to help him some without increasing PANDAS symptoms), but I think you have to take it every 6 hours or so, and it can cause drowsiness.
