yes they are worse this year, its not the grass so much, its the pollen from the trees...i was taking claritin d for about 7 years, then it stopped working, then i was taking zertec with a decongestive in it, now i take allegra d. and it works good, but i wanna see if and how much something more long term like getting a shot every 3 months or something would cost and see how well that works.

Well considering how much we spend on a months worth of these medications a shot will probably be cheaper, atleast you think it would be lol.
