Hello. Just finished a trip to Plano to bring my wife to a spinal specialist. My sinuses would not stop running. At first I thought I may have caught a summer bug but my sinuses cleared up after returning home. Has this happened to anyone here and if so, do you know what caused it and what helped it? Have to make another trip for her follow up next month and don't want a repeat of these problems.

Have you found anything to help? Would Claritin or some other OTC allergy medicine (that is safe to take while driving) help?

Unfortunately allergy season in DFW starts in February with mountain cedar pollen and it doesn't end until the last of the ragweed dies off in October or November.

I prefer Zyrtec over Claritin, but try both and see which works best. They're both OTC.

I also take Zyrtec, or rather, the Kroger brand generic - about 1/2 the cost.

I just moved here from the desert. I haven't had much in the way of allergies for years. Now, I'm seriously feeling it.
My sympathies.
