I take a daily allergy medication. I am struggling with when to take it. I seem to have horrible allergies early in the morning and again in the evening as the sun sets. I have pretty bad seasonal allergies but it seems like I cannot get relief during the transition time between environmental allergies.

I have only been prescribed one-a-day meds for allergies. Does something exist that is more than once a day to combat my morning and evening allergies?

Thank you!!!


Hi! So one thing that took me MANY years to understand is the value of using a spacer. I have multiple friends with asthma that I have tried to convince to use a spacer. Is there a "short" answer you could give as to why using a spacer is beneficial?

I always just have to say, "I don't know it just does make a difference."
