I have been consuming aerius pills (5 mg) for around 9 years. It was really good and effective, not until several months ago, that I had a gradual worsening of allergic responses with my nose and eyes.

Currently, I am having a nearly full blown allergic symtons although I consume aerius regularly. It seems like my body is no longer responsive to the medication.

Besides, I also use a Nasonex nasal spray. It seems to lose its effectiveness as well.

I changed my medication thrice by my ENT specialist when I was 15-21 year-old . It happened because the old pills are no longer working for me anymore. So, is drug resistance possible in AR or there could be other reasons?

What are other types of medication that can be helpful to me?

Thank you!

    Could I refer you to my recent posts regarding Evening Primrose Oil.

    I tried all conventional treatments for rhinitis-sinusitis, and while many had a temporary beneficial affect, theirs was no long term benefit. I had my nose cortorised twice, and this was effective for a short period, but the problem soon returned.

    After 50 years of continual suffering I found a miracle cure, that was completely unrelated to conventional treatments. 

    Evening Primrose Oil reduces the sensitivity of the nervous system, so that the body does not react to normal irritants. It is not a drug, so it has no adverse side affects.

    It works in about 4 hours and remains effective for a further 24 hours, so one 1000mg capsule daily is usually sufficient.

    Try this treatment for a few weeks and see the results

    Regards Ray.

    Yes I have an itchy eye problem, from time to time, and find Albalon A Eye Drops very effective, as they give almost immediate relief. The A stands for allergy.

    Anti histamine tablets do work on me, but the system becomes less reactive over time, and a lifetime of continually taking tablets can be avoided by taking Evening Primrose Oil capsules. Please read my post of 9-2-2016, Sinus Infection- An Effective Treatment, which I added to only two days ago, in answer to Le Roy.

    As I stated in this post, Evening Orimrose Oil normally works in about 4 hours.

    It desensitises the whole nervous system, so it is effective for all allergy problems, including hayfever, rhinitis, and sinusitis. It works in a completely different way to antihistamines and normal conventional treatments.

    Give this treatment a try, and be as surprised as I was.

    Regards Ray.
