Re: Hay Fever - Antihistamines

How do I get my officemate, who has nasty allergies and sneezes like a howitzer, to start taking something? I'm tired of the snot blowing every two minutes and having a heart attack every time he sneezes. You might think this is 'insensitive' but I'm not talking about moving him I'm talking about getting him to take something that a) makes his life better and b) makes being able to work around him better. He's clearly suffering but every time I've brought up going to see someone all I get is this East German muttering and 'No No No No No....they make you drowsy!' Well, I can't believe they all do that. In fact, I'm pretty sure they don't. This is the same guy who will come in sick because he seems to think he needs a note from his doctor to not show up at work.
