What allergy meds are you all taking; prescription or OTC and do you think they are they helping your allergy symptoms?

I have taken Aerius 5mg for sinusitis and really puffy eyes. It doesn't seem to be working too well and I think I'm going to switch to Reactine. Any advice from anyone on the best allergy med for puffy eyes caused by sinus irritation?

I take advair 250/50 1x, flonase 2 drops each nostril, and 10 mg singular. It is under control unless I get a virus or sinus problems. But I am often tired. IS ANYBODY ELSE OUT THERE TIRED? HAS ANYBODY COME DOWN WITH PNEUMONIA?

I've never had pneumonia, but when I was taking Flonase I did end up with the most horrible cold of my life. I believe with Advair, Flonase and Singulair there is an increased risk of getting sinus infections and colds so I guess the possibility of pneumonia is there as well. Is this what you have? If so, I'm so sorry to hear this. Are you on antibiotics at this time?

Hi, Sherry...Thank the good graces out there, I do not have pneumonia. Actually nexium causes a 27% increase in viral pneumonia. That's the last thing I need. Lately I feel all stuffed up and tired. I decided to make up a thread for fatigue and see what others think. (I did not vote twice on the poll).
