For FUCKS SAKE. I'm dying today.
Tips please. Recommended medication. Anything.
dying today. Absolutely dying. Fuck off pollen.
You can get corticosteroids from your doctor. That's what I used to do.
For me, it's one pill of ceterezine hydrochloride every day, wearing sunglasses outdoors whenever I think I won't look like a complete twat, and always carrying tissues. Touch wood it hasn't been so bad this year, but I have had some bad days - one day when I was away from home and didn't have my pills I thought I was actually dying.
Jesus, you sensitive darling. I'm not entirely convinced they're not placebos, they're so tiny I struggle to believe they have an effect at all. But I'm too wet to break the rules and have more than one :(
I also have a nasal wash thing I've bought. It's kind of unpleasant at first but totally unblocks your sinuses and also washes all the pollen out
I'm suffering a little. I go for Sainsbury's own brand.
Suck it, summer.
I try to avoid taking antihistamines because even the non-drowsy ones knock me out.
"Don't sneeze on me man!"
but I'm suffering with pollen and you don't understand.
Well I do what I can,
but I'm streaming from my eyeholes
and I'm a shell of a man.
Got Fexofenadine on prescription: it doesn't make things 100% better, but it definitely makes a big difference.
Ceterezine, Nasonex nose spray, Fexofenadine (last two from gp). It's done the trick, i was awful last week, just had the ceterezine & some beconase, which did chuff all. Fine since Saturday though, which makes a welcome change. There's something quite pathetic about a grown man with hayfever.
Thought i'd brave it this year without medication.
Stupidest idea ive ever had. I have sneezed 15 times in the last hour.
Stops the pollen getting up your nose
Gave me an unbearably greasy nose, kept on sneezing.
