I've had pretty "hay fever," as we call it, for decades and don't want to take drugs for it -- plus none have been very helpful. But thie year I started taking organic freeze-dried nettle capsules regularly (I think that's the effective way for me) and it worked beautifully! I'm sold on it and will continue to take it every year -- maybe even year-round.

I used to take many OTC allergy meds daily, all year. For 9 years I have taken this with great results. Small difference in the beginning, then a big difference. Now I only take a couple of capsules maybe 3 times per year.

Comment:
Since I began taking freeze dried stinging nettles as recommended by Dr. Weil for severe sinus allergies, I have almost completely eliminated my need for Claritin. Whereas before I was taking Claritin every 24 hours, I now only need to take one once every several weeks. Stinging nettles work, and they seem to take effect much more quickly than other antihistamines, as well.

This has worked so much faster and better than any of the otc meds I have tried and I have tried most of them! Doesn't cause drowsiness either. I was skeptical to try but am so impressed by how well it works I will definitely keep using!
