Non sedating allergy medications
It is a good idea to call your doctor if you suspect your symptoms are due to an allergic reaction.
Also, talk to your doctor if an allergic reaction occurs soon after starting a new medication.
This is when you experience allergy symptoms, such as sneezing, itchy eyes, wheezing, nasal congestion, and rash.
The most common treatment option includes taking antihistamines to slow down immune system and reduce severity of different symptoms.
Although histamine is actually a useful substance and helps clear infection, it is important to block its effects in case of allergic reactions.
Histamines give you stuffy and swelling nose, runny nose and eyes, itchy nose and mouth and even rash on the skin (hives).
Causing a plethora of different symptoms, allergies can make it impossible to get through all of your daily duties!
Unfortunately, most allergy medicines are known to cause drowsiness.
Whether it was brought about by the changing seasons or by accidental contact with food you’re allergic to, an allergic reaction can be very limiting.
First generation antihistamines can have different side effects, and drowsiness is one of them.
But that is not the case with second-generation antihistamines.
If side effects do happens, the most common ones may include agitation, dizziness, headache, drowsiness, dry mouth, blurred vision, stomach upset, and difficulty passing urine.
Keep in mind that some other medicines can also react with antihistamines and cause certain complications.Antihistamines work by blocking or reducing histamines to soothe lots of allergic symptoms from seasonal allergy, indoor allergy and food allergy. You may need a decongestant to treat nose congestion or take other medications combining antihistamine and decongestant to get relief.
