I have HORRIBLE allergies to pet dander.. I have tried many generic allergy medications and nothing seems to help! What other choices do I have? Or what medications do you think helps best?

Hi Roxygirl30

Thanks for your post! 

Do you have an animal at home? If not, you can make a point of staying away from animals and asking friends or families to let their pets play outside or go to another room when you visit although you may still be affected since their dander lingers. 

Generic medications have the same active ingredients as brand names so trying brand names won't make much of a difference. 

Have you thought of getting allergy shots? They won't make your allergies go away but many do a pretty good job at alleviating symptoms. 

How much contact with animals do you have?

Best,

Susan
