This is my first year using CedarX and so far so good. Usually by now the cedar has about killed me.

I hope it is true, but several sources are reporting this year cedar will be lighter than it was during the drought because of the rain...I PRAY they are right. We are doing our annual "get out of town for cedar peak time cruise" this year again just in case anyway....

I'm also a daily sufferer during this time of the year. When everything started ramping up in December, so did my allergies. I'm on a daily regimen of saline nose spray, but I discovered a eucalyptus nasal rinse at CVS too. It's a similar contraption to the netipot, but you use a eucalyptus solution instead. Depending on how much solution you use, it can burn a little, but it really works! Rinses out all those allergens.

I haven't even been taking my daily Zyrtec. I can't say it will work for everyone, but it definitely did for me.

Good luck!

Allegra works the best for me. Zyrtec works too well...dries out my eyes and I get a film on my contact lenses. Claritin doesn't work at all for me, never has, which is a shame because it's so cheap.

As a rule I dont suffer from allergies. This year I apparently decided I am allergic to fresh cut grass. My sinuses get roasted every time I cut the grass and because of El Nino that is year freaking 'round this year

Flonase and Allertec D (generic from Costco -- like Zyrtec D). Pharmacist insisted that I didn't need the "D" because I have little nasal drainage. I have pressure headaches instead. But the "D" works better for me, and I don't get so drowsy.

My brother-in-law who is an ER doctor told me to go on Flonase. If I understood correctly, he said antihistamines treat symptoms while Flonase (and other steroid sprays) prevents allergic reaction. He said everytime you have an allergic reaction, you're more likely to have another and a worse one. So, it's important to stop the reactions. He used to have horrible allergies to everything. He treated them aggressively and consistently with Flonase, and he rarely has a problem now. So, I'm giving it a try this year. So far, I'm not feeling too badly.

Good luck to you!

I appreciate you posting that Lee W! I was checking on line and it said Juniper...and I was REALLY confused. It did not even LIST the cedar...no WONDER I have been feeling like this. I actually did a quick drycleaners/HEB run and was home in less than 1 hour and felt like my head was going to explode being out that short a time. Within 20 minutes of being back indoor, headache is ALMOST gone.
