Allergies are particles that irritate the immune system, triggering an overreaction to normally harmless substances, such as plant pollen1. Allergies can produce uncomfortable and bothersome symptoms, which are often countered by people using allergy medications such as Reactine ® Symptoms. Extra Strength REACTINE ® provides rapid relief within 24 hours of all your worst indoor and outdoor allergy symptoms. Histamine is a natural chemical produced by your body that is important in helping your body perform its daily functions2, 3. Histamine is often cited as the culprit for allergy symptoms. While your body does this to protect itself, an overreaction can lead to symptoms like itchy and watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, and itchy nose or throat.
As the name suggests, antihistamines work by preventing histamine from attaching to histamine receptors. This action helps prevent inflammation and stops allergy symptoms before they start. 4 Antihistamines are available as over-the-counter (OTC) medications and are made by several brands. Reactine® is the most recommended over-the-counter medication for allergy sufferers to relieve symptoms of indoor and outdoor allergens including hay fever, mold, dust mites, pollen, pet dander and more. In some cases, you can relieve symptoms by increasing the strength of your antihistamine. In this case, Reactine ® Extra Strength may provide some relief when you switch from Reactine ® Regular Strength. To monitor results, consider keeping an allergy diary to track how your body responds to allergens after changing the dose/strength of allergy medication.
During allergy season, you can rely on Reactine® to provide relief when taken once a day, any time of day. However, you should not rely on Reactine alone or continue to take it daily outside of allergy season unless directed by your doctor. Reactine ® should be taken according to its label and not for anaphylaxis or as a substitute for epinephrine. If you're looking for Reactine ® products for your regular allergy-fighting use, you can choose from a variety of products such as Reactine Rapid Dissolve, Reactine Complete Sinus + Allergy, or Reactine Extra Strength. These OTC products are also conveniently available in various forms such as liquid gels, tablets or liquids, so you can be sure to take Reactine ® with you wherever you go.
