What can I take for allergies causing sneezing, runny nose and itchy, watery eyes?
Itchy and watery eyes along with a runny nose and sneezing are all common symptoms of colds and allergies. Antihistamines like Benadryl® help stop these symptoms and are available in stronger prescription and weaker over-the-counter forms. Other antihistamines like Allegra® and Claritin® have less of a chance of side effects like drowsiness, blurry vision and dry mouth. Allegra® and Claritin® are better for children during school hours and adults who drive cars and work with machinery as well as older people. Speak with your doctor to find which medicine is best for you.
