What Is The Best Allergy Medicine?

The answer to this question depends on your symptoms and on the remedies’ side effects that you want to avoid. 

Cetirizine and Fexofenadine have similar efficacy and side effects. Certizine, however, provides faster relief -- it works within one hour after taking it while Fexofenadine works within two hours. Besides that, Cetirizine has proven to be more effective relieving symptoms of allergic rhinitis.

Diphenhydramine, on the other hand, often causes side effects such as tiredness and drowsiness. It is powerful when it comes to addressing the symptoms, but we don’t recommend taking it during the day.

Phenylephrine is strictly a nasal decongestant. Therefore, it is a great alternative for people who have nasal congestion as the main symptom of the allergic reaction. 

Here’s an overview of each allergy medicine:

Diphenhydramine

Relieves allergy symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy nose or throat, and watery eyes.

How does it work? Diphenhydramine is an antihistamine that works by reducing allergy symptoms to provide quick relief from allergic reactions. Diphenhydramine has a short half-life compared to other antihistamines, this means any possible side effects won't last long.

What should I know about it? Don't take before any activity that you need to be alert for (e.g. driving your car, operating machines, or that really important job interview). Don't take with alcohol.

Compares to: Benadryl

Best for: Individuals with allergy symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy nose or throat, and watery eyes who won’t be participating in any activity that requires attention.

Fexofenadine

Provides a non-drowsy relief for the symptoms of seasonal allergies (hay fever), such as runny nose, sneezing, itchy nose or throat, hives, itchy eyes, in adults and children.

How does it work? Fexofenadine works by blocking the action of histamine, a substance in the body that triggers allergy symptoms. Its long half-life means you only have to take it once a day.

What should I know about it? Avoid taking them with juices of any kind: apple juice, orange juice, gin & juice. Don't take with antacids containing aluminum or magnesium (e.g. Maalox or Mylanta). If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, speak with our Care Team or pharmacist before use.

Compares to: Allegra 24 hour

Best for: Individuals with allergy symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy nose or throat, and watery eyes who will be participating in an activity that requires attention, such as driving or taking an exam.

Cetirizine

Provides relief of allergy symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, itchy nose or throat, itchy or watery eyes within one hour.

How does it work? Cetirizine works by blocking the action of histamine – a substance in the body that triggers allergic symptoms. Its inability to pass the blood-brain barrier causes less drowsiness than Diphenhydramine.

What should I know about it? Cetirizine rarely causes drowsiness. In addition to taking this tablet, nasal sprays and eye drops are great at helping with allergy symptoms.

Compares to: Zyrtec and Claritin (Loratadine)

Best for: Individuals who need fast relief for allergy symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy nose or throat, and watery eyes. Some studies found that this is the most effective allergy medicine for allergic rhinitis. 

Nasal Decongestant (Phenylephrine)

Provides maximum strength, non-drowsy relief for nasal allergy and sinus congestion.

How does it work? Phenylephrine is a nasal decongestant that narrows blood vessels and shrinks tissues in your nasal passage, allowing the normal flow of air and mucus. Phenylephrine has fewer side effects compared to pseudoephedrine.

What should I know about it? Phenylephrine may potentially elevate your blood pressure. Don't use if you are taking any monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI).

Compares to: Sudafed PE Congestion


Best for: Individuals whose main allergy symptoms are an itchy and stuffy nose.

Is it safe to mix allergy medications?

Some allergy medications are safe to be combined.

In general, you can use an over-the-counter antihistamine (the first three medicines on this list) with a decongestant (phenylephrine). That’s if you have no conflicting medical conditions.

However, it is not always safe to take two oral antihistamine medications in one day. For example, you don’t want to take a Cetirizine in the morning and a Xyzal or Flonase in the afternoon. 

If you want to be on the safe side, go with the Non-Drowsy Allergy Relief Kit. This kit was developed by professionals thinking about all your allergy needs as a whole. It comes with easy-to-follow instructions about dosage and meds combinations.

What are the most common allergy symptoms?

Even though some allergic reactions have serious symptoms, the majority of allergies are mild and the symptoms look like the cold’s symptoms. 

The most common include:

1. Sneezing
2. Itchy, runny, or blocked nose
3. Shortness of breath and a cough
4. Watery, red, or itchy eyes
5. Itchy and red rash 

If you feel a couple of these symptoms combined for extended periods of time, you likely have an allergy -- not a cold.

Which allergy medicine has the least side effects?

The most common side effects of allergy medicines include drowsiness and dizziness. But I get that many daily activities such as driving, working, and studying require you to be alert and focused.

The good news is that there are few remedies that are less likely to have side effects. These include Fexofenadine and Cetirizine.

Even though Diphenhydramine is one of the most effective medicines, it tends to have stronger side effects. Phenylephrine doesn’t cause drowsiness but it may elevate your blood pressure.

Is it safe to take over-the-counter allergy medications every day?

Antihistamines are generally safe to be taken daily for a short period of time. However, it is not recommended that you take them every day in the long-term. That’s because your body might develop a resistance to the effects of the medicine. To avoid that, you might want to alternate your allergy medicines with an allergy nasal spray like Nasacort, depending on your symptoms.

If your allergy tends to bother you for long periods of time, we recommend that you investigate what triggers your allergies. The allergen might be something that you can avoid having contact with, such as a specific type of tree or pet. You might need to consult an allergist for that.

Who shouldn’t take allergy medications?

Antihistamines are generally safe for most patients. Decongestants are not recommended for individuals with high blood pressure. That’s because they relieve nasal stuffiness by narrowing blood vessels and reducing swelling in the nose. This process can affect other blood vessels as well, which can increase blood pressure.

Older antihistamines, such as Diphenhydramine are not recommended for individuals who have prostate problems or glaucoma.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult a healthcare professional before using allergy medications.

Besides that, most people can take OTC allergy medications with no problems.

If your allergy tends to bother you for long periods of time, we recommend that you investigate what triggers your allergies. The allergen might be something that you can avoid having contact with, such as a specific type of tree or pet. You might need to consult an allergist for that.
