Additional Details
I tried those shots a few years ago . they seemed to just aggravate symptoms . I've also tried homopathec remedies like natural adrenaline cortex herbs etc maybe ill just move to Greenland

What about allergy shots? They are time consuming, but usually permanent

depends what you are allergic to , i took shots for 2 years and it did nothing... later i found that i could rid most of the allergies with changes in my diet

What sort of Allergies you have ? how can you expect someone to answer your question correctly, if you do not give specific details about what you are ailing from.Just naming the ailment or disorder is not enough most of the times its just the tip of the iceberg and there are deeper things which matter more then trying to judge it by a meaningless name.So please be specific and detailed if you want an accurate answer.
I am a Homeopath, What homeopathic Remedies did you take and in what potency ? And please explain your feelings in your own words and please put down whatever you feel exactly as you feel it.
Take care and God Bless.


just me
You may find a natural/herbal remedy. A recent article suggested eating local honey (may help desensitize local pollen allergies). You may seek the advise of a naturopath.

how dare I
steriods might be your only hope if OTC isn't working for you

Chronic Hiver
Try some of the prescription antihistamines - Zyrtec is usually very good. You might need to combine it with an H2 antihistamine: Pepcid, Tagamet, or Zantac; Zantac has been shown in clinical trials to work best with Zyrtec. Also, many people find adding a leukotriene blocker such as Singulair, Accolate, and Zyflo very helpful. And sometimes higher doses of antihistamines are needed - talk to your doctor, don't mess with dosing on your own.

Depending on what type of allergic reactions you are having, some other possible choices (most are prescription):

- Nasalcrom (sinus involvement)
- Gastrocrom (GI involvement, flushing)
- Intal (airway involvement)
- Nasonex (sinus)
- Primatene Mist (contains epinephrine, good for anaphylactic symptoms, but use only under doctor's supervision)
- Albuterol (asthma and asthma-like symptoms)
- Cyclosporine (autoimmune chronic urticaria)
- ephedrine sulfate (good for anaphylactic symptoms, only under doctor's supervision)
- Doxepin (a tri-cyclic antidepressant with strong antihistamine qualities, great for hives)
- Ketotifen (not available in US, but an excellent antihistamine with mast cell stabilizing properties, can be imported into US with prescription)
