There are many over-the-counter options for those suffering from allergies.
Don Versluys with Crown Pharmacy in Pella says that the number of options that don’t require a prescription has increased. He said those cover a variety of symptoms and many of the brands have options with or without decongestants. Versluys also says that the best way to manage symptoms this season is to be proactive. He said that it’s also good practice when buying over-the-counter remedies to come to a pharmacy prepared with medical information, including blood pressure and if certain medicines cause drowsiness.
