Allergies, Antihistamines, and Drowsiness
We are told that the mild winter will likely result in an increase in spring pollen and other allergens. Some are reporting the effects already.
If you take antihistamines for relief, be advised that they can produce some unwanted side effects. The most common one is drowsiness. With drowsiness come reduced coordination, slowed reaction time and impaired judgment
If taking antihistamines, read the directions carefully, take the smallest dose that will do the job, and don't drive or operate machinery while taking them.
