Allergic Rhinitis - Medications
If you don't take your
medicine, your symptoms may come back or get worse. When you give medicine to children, explain
to them why they are taking medicine and how it can help them. Also tell them what side effects may occur.
You may use medicine daily for quick
relief of symptoms that occur suddenly or are getting worse. Or you may use it
in advance if you know you may breathe an allergen. For example, if you have
severe pollen allergies, your doctor may suggest that you start using a
corticosteroid spray 1 to 2 weeks before the pollen season starts.
