Thank you for your reply. I know it sometimes takes time to get an answer, although I usually post on a different forum and get many answers fairly soon. I will hope someone with my symptoms will be able to help. Yes, I do take allergy med. I take Allegra right now. I used to take Zyrtec when it was prescription but my insurance switched me to the Allegra. I don't know which one is better or if one is better, but the Allegra does make me drowsy so have to take it at night. Thanks again for answering.
