Walking around all day with tingling skin and a stuffy nose is no fun. When you have an allergic reaction, your body traps allergens by bringing more blood to the lining of the nose. This causes inflammation and swelling which eventually causes nasal congestion and limited air flow. So what do you do? Keep reading.

If you are suffering from allergies then there is a handy solution -- decongestants. Decongestants relieve a stuffy nose and make it easier for you to breathe by narrowing blood vessels and reducing blood flow to mucous membranes. Meaning that decongestants reduce mucus and congestion and eventually help you breath better.

According to pharmaceutical manufacturer MCR American Pharmaceuticals, decongestants also help open the nasal sinuses and cavity. Decongestants for allergies are a relatively safe medication as long as taken according to the instructions.

Allergy decongestants are available both over-the-counter and by prescription, and there are many different types and combinations. MCR American Pharmaceuticals manufactures several allergy decongestants including Maxifed G, Maxifed DM, Super-Tuss PE, and Super-Tuss PSE.

When taking allergy decongestants it’s important to use them safely and follow the suggestions listed: + Don’t take allergy decongestants if you have heart problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, enlarged prostate, or an overactive thyroid. + Use nasal sprays or drops when you need instant congestion relief. + Don’t use nasal decongestant sprays or drops for more than three or four days. + Use oral decongestants when you need symptom relief for more than a few days. + Avoid taking decongestants before going to bed, they will keep you awake. + If you have any questions, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.

In addition, antihistamines are another popular medication for allergies that relieve watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, itching, and breathing difficulty. Antihistamines are most effective if taken before being exposed to allergens; for example, before having a picnic in a garden filled with blossoming flowers or a trip to an animal shelter. Antihistamine drugs are available without a prescription at most drugstores. MCR American Pharmaceuticals manufactures several antihistamines including Congestinex C, Congestinex PE, Maxifed, and Maxifed DMX. MCR American Pharmaceuticals sells its medications online on the company’s Website.

When taking allergy antihistamines it’s important to use them safely and follow the suggestions listed: + If you're taking an antihistamine that causes drowsiness, try to take it before bedtime. Avoid using it during the day when driving or operating heavy machinery. + Before taking antihistamines, go over all of your medications with your doctor or pharmacist. + Antihistamines may interact with other medications. + Don’t take antihistamines if you have an enlarged prostate, heart disease, high blood pressure, thyroid problems, kidney or liver disease. + Check with your doctor prior to taking antihistamines if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

To sum up, both decongestants and antihistamines can help cure your allergies. Consult your pharmacist or doctor prior to selecting a type of medication. In addition, it’s important you follow the instructions and warnings prior to taking any sort of medication.
