Do you still have allergy symptoms? If so, how do you manage them without an antihistamine? (serious question, I need to do this for myself)

Quercetin is a supplement that helps allergy symptoms. Some people get relief from a Neti pot and saline rinse.

The 2nd generation antihistamines are supposed to be safer than the first generation antihistamines like benadryl.

Who have no clue as to the differences between cause and effect, association, and/or pure coincidence.

Hedgehog Mom, I'm sorry you had to go through all that with your Dad, too.

I agree with you...I truly believe it's the prescribed drugs in most cases that cause the memory loss.
I looked up some drugs used for alzheimer's treatment and the side effects listed confusion and memory loss
(among others) as common side effects....the very things we hope the drugs will alleviate.
Does that make sense???

Of course, it makes sense, big money speaking. To think pharma cares about the person....please... The more sickness the more big money.

We certainly CAN when every single thread you make the very same comments multiple times. You're a broken record repeating the same three verses.
