  1. I HAVE ALLERGIES!

    I WANT TO SCRATCH MY NOSE AND RUB MY EYES

    ISN’T THERE SOME KIND OF EXEMPTION I CAN GET?

      @mikl_plsThanks. I’ve tried Claritin to no avail. I’ll look into Singulair.

      For my hair-trigger allergies, I take Zyrtec (cetirizine hydrochloride) 10mg once daily, and have done so for years. Now, I almost never have allergic reactions that require eye-rubbing and nose-scratching, and I can even tolerate most non-hypoalergenic cats without going into an asthmatic fit. Not sure about Siamese, though - they're the 800 lb. gorilla of cat allergies for me, so I've avoided them. Besides, they're cranky. 

      Always get the generic. Name-brand Zyrtec is stupidly higher.

      Oddly enough, I find Flonase or Nasacort to be more effective at treating my itchy eyes than Zyrtec or Singulair (both of which I also take anyway). Zyrtec helps with the nasal symptoms, but the nasal steroids seem to have a bigger impact on itchy eyes. Maybe worth a shot?
