Millions of Americans suffer from seasonal allergies, and each season presents its own distinct challenges. Summer sun and fun can also bring with it sneezing and sniffling, thanks to weeds such as ragweed and various grasses.
Allergy season can be particularly challenging for those with a chronic condition. Traditionally, antihistamines are the go-to medication for treating allergy symptoms. When it comes to treating senior citizens with antihistamines, however, doctors are cautious because these medications can have adverse effects, such as a rise in blood pressure or counteractions with other medications that these patients may be taking.
