Reviews about Allegra.
Hello everyone, my name is Olga and I’m allergic. Every summer — a real test only starts things to bloom — I start sneezing, watering, the nose lays. Tried a lot of drugs, most tends to sleep. And this summer bought already “Allegra”.
My son has an allergic rash since he was 2. When I first started, the allergen is quickly identified — fish, seafood and some plants. At first cost that removed allergens, and since 5 years the doctor already began to appoint different antihistamines, from time to time when an aggravation. Tried many different, in 12 years have stopped on Allegra since there is no sedative effect, the child does not go sleepy constantly.
