Re: Pollen - Seasonal Allergies - Zürich/ Zug area

I'm miserable

I've always had bad allergies growing up in Indiana and Oklahoma. They were especially bad in California, mostly in the spring then again in the fall. I was tested as a child, mostly grass pollen and other things.

I take Zyrtec daily and have tried Allegra. If I spend more than two hours outside I'm sneezing 10 times a minute, with a runny nose, itchy eyes.. it's the worst. In the states I'd usually pick up some Benadryl take two and feel better. Yes, I'd be drowsy, but I'd stop sneezing.

I stopped by a pharmacy here in Zurich, and I don't think you have Benadryl or the equilivant here. Also tried Madrid when I was there last weekend.

Sometimes I just need something strong to knock it back even if it makes me drowsy.

Can't wait for my belongings from the US to show up.. I have a 500 count bottle of Benadryl in there somewhere...
