Before I figured out how to manage my seasonal allergies naturally, over-the-counter antihistamines were my saving grace. They worked best for me if I took them when I first noticed symptoms. Otherwise, my symptoms would escalate and it would take hours for the antihistamine to "catch up" with my reaction. While they're helpful, I don't recommend them whole-heartedly because more natural options can work well if implemented over time, and they have fewer side effects.

I've used a number of over-the-counter and prescription antihistamines. Most have been great at making me feel better but the challenge is finding which won't make me sleepy all day. So I don't use them daily during allergy season, but they're great for emergencies or if my allergies make it difficult to sleep at night.
