I personally like Zyrtec. I have been on Allegra for years but it never did much for me but I kept taking it anyway. I have tried soooo many allergy meds in the past though. I once tried to get a prescript
ion for Zyrtec but my insurance denied it. But now that it's OTC I decided to try it. So far, I LOVE this med :) I can actually wake up in the mornings and not have a nose full of gunk and no sneezing, it's been great! :) All these meds that you only take one a day, it means that they are effective for 24 hours. So it doesn't really matter what time of day or night that you take it. I've always taken my Allegra at night too because of the sleepiness. Do you find that Allegra or Zyrtec works better for you?

Hi Red, I too don't really find that the Allegra works that well for me. I still wake up with a very runny nose and cough up a lot of stuff. I haven't taken zytec for a while so can't remember how well it worked but since it is over the counter now I think I will get some and see how it works again. The only thing Allegra does for me is give me a very dry mouth. I dno't recall being sleepy from the Zyrtec. Thanks for the suggestion.
