Advil’s Allergy and Sinus
Because allergies are common, few people visit their physician for treatment. Instead, they visit their local pharmacy and select one of many over-the-counter brands. If suffering from new allergies, you may be uncertain of which brands are proven effective. In this case, consulting with the on-site pharmacist may offer future insight.
If choosing an over-the-counter medication to treat allergy symptoms, I strongly recommend Advil medicine for allergy and sinus problems. Although I am not a chronic allergy suffer, I do experience occasional flare-ups, which tend to last for several days. Symptoms generally consist of scratchy throat, runny nose, eye irritation, and sensitivity to smells. I am not the type of person who runs to the doctor for every little discomfort; therefore I try and treat most ailments at home, and seek medical advice if symptoms do not improve.
I was introduced to Advil’s Allergy and Sinus about a month ago. After experiencing allergy eyes for several days, I begin to experiment with various treatments such as artificial tears, allergy eye drops, and Visine. Although the products offered some relief, I was not impressed by the results. On another trip to the pharmacy, I decided to experiment with medication.
Because of varying symptoms, I was unsure as to whether allergy or sinus pressure was causing the eye irritation. Hence, I opted for a medication that provided relief for both symptoms. Initially, I was a little hesitant to purchase the Advil because the label said it provided relief for “itchy and watery eyes.” My eyes were dry and burning. Nonetheless, I purchased the medication, and received wonderful results. Within one hour of my first dosage, the irritation stopped. Moreover, the relief lasts for about six to twelve hours.
I usually need a dose after spending many hours outdoors, or when the windows and screen door is open. To alleviate future irritation, I take a caplet before enjoying outdoor activities. Advil side effects are minimal; thus the medication did not cause marked drowsiness, unlike Advil PM. I can take it freely without feeling sluggish or falling asleep. If I could change one thing about the product, I would have the label read, “provides relief for all eye irritations caused by allergies or sinus pressure.”
