Product Placement: My allergies have been terrible lately. I wake up with a sneezy, runny nose and watery eyes nearly every day. I was taking Clarinase and it helped, but it’s pseudoephedrine and it made me feel wired for hours. (Plus the pharmacists here are all worried that you’re going to use it to make crystal meth, so you can only buy seven tablets at a time.) I saw Zyrtec recommended on Glitter the other day and decided to give it a try. I’m on Day 2 and it’s great so far! That first little pill lasted a full 24 hours – no sneezing when I got up today. They’ve also got a neat website with a fun clicky-house thing that helped me determine that I’m probably allergic to dust and feathers. I guess it’s time to throw out my pillow!
