Advice & Tips: I stopped taking this medication because it was not helping my allergies at all. The only thing that it did was make me want to sleep all day and all night. I tried taking it at night to see if it made a difference and it didn't. I still suffer from bad allergies and it seems that this medication didn't want to work for them at all.
