Hayfever-Do You?

Post by desi securitry guarld » Tue Jun 19, 2007 12:48 pm

Well its that time of year again, yep. The coulds turn grey, the sun hides away and the rain falls like no tomorrow...yep youve guessed it, im referring to summer and the dreaded HAYFEVER!!!!.

so who here suffers from it, what symptoms do you get an what have you found that works to cure it?

i take anti-hestamines (2x10mg tablets) a day and itll kepp my hayfever at bay for 6-8hours a day max.

symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, proepr devlish red eyes and asthma (occasionally).

Other treatments that have worked include sticking vaseline where the sun dont shine (in my nostrils) and keeping the windows closed (when indoors) and the air con turned up (cleaning the filters regularly helps too).

^^ Point to note, 2 lots of 10mg per day is overdosing yourself, depending on exactly which medication you're taking.

Chloraphenamine (Piriton) is generally the best at hitting all your symptoms, but it causes drowsiness, so it's not suitable for those studying or driving during the daytime.

Ceterizine Hydrochloride (Piriteze/Zirtek) is a 1 tablet once daily, and can take 3-4 days to take effect. However, people who usually take this have found it is NOT working this year.. so my advice is don't bother with this one, unless you're allergic to everything else. Can be taken with Beconase and/or opticrom, if sneezing/itchy eyes is still a problem.

Loratidine is also 1 tablet daily, and may be more preferable (Clarityn). Again, you can take beconase/opticrom with this too.

(especially if you're asthmatic/allergic to anything/on other meds)

its loratidaine or some junk i take i know sis its over dosing but its the only way i can actually do something without sneezing all over it. i only take it if iam doing something important like work or a long stint of driving. otherwise i dont take anything at all, and just let nature have its way.

Overdosing is more dangerous than most people think.

Did you know even a slightly overdose of paracetamol can be fatal? It causes irreversible liver damage that can eventually be fatal. But the fatality doesn't present itself until up to months after the overdose.

DO NOT OVERDOSE, EVEN IF YOU THINK IT'S THE ONLY WAY IT WILL WORK!! There is a REASON why there is a maximum allowed dose!! And that reason is - your body CANNOT handle more, and the long-term/"side effects" are no longer less than the therapeutic effects!! IT CAN KILL!

Jeezus! STOP IT SANJ!
