Anyone have allergies and use these? Before anyone gets started, yes, it is a steroid and can have unpleasant side effects. I've been living in Vegas for near 35 years now. I never had a problem with allergies here until about 12 years ago when development really took off and people started doing all sorts of nutty landscaping things that really shouldn't exist in the desert at all but because everyone that moved here wanted to make this place just like the pest hole they moved away from coz they hated it so much, they planted all the crap they had back where they came from?! One year I noticed that I had itchy eyes and started taking allegra for it which worked pretty well up until this year. No longer, this year has been so bad that I made an emergency trip to the Dr yesterday. After I told her that zatidol eye drops, zyrtec, claritin, and allegra don't work she suggested a kenalog shot. I took her up on it. No change so far but supposedly it takes about 48 hours to kick in and start blocking the inflammation from the histamines causing it. Anyway, I'm just curious as to anyone else's e experience with the shots?
