It seems that springtime allergies are hitting once again, so I've turned to my old friend Benadryl.
On the plus side, those little pink pills really work. The sniffles, sneezing, and runny nose are gone in about 40 minutes. But this effectiveness comes at a price. I find that the first few hits of the season manage to reduce my mental and physical energy in a dramatic way. I feel like a walking zombie.
Luckily the season is pretty short for me and the effects tends to become more mild after repeated use. So, I end up using Benadryl more than any of the other over the counter allergy medications.
But I haven't tried all of them. Have you found one that works wonders without the side effects?
