Living on four and a half acres comes with a lot of pollen and other allergens. I knew as soon as spring hit that I would need a good allergy medicine to take care of the effects of allergies in order to live and get on with my life instead of being miserable and curling up in a ball. I tried many different brands before picking up a box of Allegra and giving it a shot. I had heard both good and bad things about Allegra so I wasn't sure how to feel about it when I first purchased it, but as soon as I took it and it kicked in, I knew I had made the right choice. There are more good than bad things about Allegra-D, so we will start with the only bad thing that I have experiened taking it. Just like with every allergy medicine, it does cause some drowsieness. Now with Allegra- D it hasn't been as bad as what I expereinced with other medicines, but still it is present. Now that we have the bad out of the way I can tell you all about the good things, and there are plenty. The price is great, the pills are easy to take even for my husband who has trouble taking pills. There is only one side effect that either of us experienced. The relief it gives from allergies is long lasting which is probably the most important thing to me when taking it. I would definately recommend keeping this in your arsenel during allergy season.
