Advice & Tips: I only take this medication as needed. It is the only "allergy" relief medication that I can find. The only problem that I have is if I take it during the day it's going to put me to sleep no matter how hard I try to stay awake. It works great for my allergies, but it's terrible to take every day as prescribed on the back of the box. I use the over the counter Benadryl.
