Thanks for this post. I was wondering about that drug as I heard from friends that they had not had any success with it themselves. I also suffer from hay fever and have not had particular success with drugs. I find that it helps to use an allergen-free vacuum and to change clothes once I get indoors if I have been in an area with lots of grass.

People with airborne allergies and asthma need to purchase quality HEPA air purifiers and HEPA vacuum cleaners to keep their indoor air quality clean and free of floating allergens that include, dust, pollen and mold spores. USA products are far better then the low quality Chinese stuff which is what you will find in the local big box stores. For great information on allergy and asthma control and the best HEPA air purifier and HEPA vacuum cleaner products see the dot com website for aircleaners.
