I have allergies on an epic scale (can't breathe while I'm sleeping, have several coughing fits a day doing nothing at all, have to stick tissues up my nose like a crazy to keep it from bleeding from blowing it too much, etc), and I've tried everything in the allergy aisle! What works for you individually isn't necessarily going to be what works for me or anybody else, but I CAN tell you what works for me. When it's just allergies, I get sudafed PE in the equate brand. It's cheap, and it works for me. It's a mix of chlorphineramine maleate and phenylephrine HCI, and works really well. What I've found that works REALLY well, though, is Theraflu -- they have a type for sinus and cold in the powder, and it works wonders! For some reason, the powder works much better for me than the liquid. You make a cup of hot water, pour the powder in, and wait for it to cool down enough to drink, then you drink it all before it cools off too much. It tastes lemony and really isn't bad. That works REALLY well, but is like $5 for six servings, soo. Not really cost-effective. But it works! For me. I really, really hope that your allergies either clear up or you find something that really works for you.
