    So, im allergic to cats.

    Hey everyone! Been a while, but im here to ask about allergy medication. Iv hade a cat dropped into my lap and i dont have the heart to give it away. That being said i wana know what are the best meds i can take to keep my allergies undercontrol. Its not like my throat close up or anything like that, its just watery itchy eyes.


    Thanks all!

    anti-histamines - but check you are allowed to take them first.

    By the way, I think you're a fantastic person for giving a cat a home under those circumstances.

    Thanks! I love animals and stuff so seeing her go out into the cold would kinda kill me.

    Newer antihistamines such as *acrivastine (Semprex), *cetirizine (Zyrtec), fexofenadine (Allegra) and loratadine (Claritin) are usually much less sedating than Benadryl (diphenhydramine - in the US + Canada, not elsewhere) and other first generation antihistamines. Check with your pharmacist if you are taking any other medication, including herbal supplements.

    * confusingly, the active ingredient in UK Benadryl formulations is either acrivastine or cetirizine

    I take that for the itching I get from my BP med. It's one that has little interaction with anything and is very safe.

    Well done OP for giving the cat a home!
