Does the job with no drowsiness

Review Text: 
I have year round allergies but they are worse in the spring and fall with the budding of the trees, grass growing and in the fall with the ragweed. During these times I rely on Reactine to help me get through my days. It stops the runny eyes and nose and incessant cough. I have tried other brands but Reactine is the brand for me.

I don't usually write reviews on products but Reactine has had such a positive impact on my quality of life that I had to write something. I have suffered from hay fever most of my life. I tried everything from nasal sprays to allergen immunotherapy, non of which were effective. My pollen related allergies (grasses, trees, weeds) usually start in April and last until August. During past allergy seasons I would be forced to stay inside during high pollen counts and when I did go out to enjoy some outdoor activities I would end up itching, sneezing, and with horrible nasal congestion and I would also end up awake all night with these same symptoms. This allergy season I have been taking Reactine everyday and it has seriously changed my life. I can go out and enjoy the great outdoors symptom-free. Taking Reactine will definitely be a daily routine during allergy season for the rest of my life!

I have been using this product for more than 5 years. I have seasonal allergies and when it is summer my allergies get worse. This product has definitely made my itchy eyes and running nose less noticeable. I have noticed with consistent use my symptoms start to decrease every day and there are times when I don't need to take the pill.

Was running out of Aerius (desloratadine) so I thought I'd tried Reactine, figured any allergy pill would work. My allergies are pretty bad this year, trees. When I took Reactine early morning (my usual daily time), they sort of worked but not very well, and even staying mostly indoors, my symptoms (itchy watery tearing eyes, runny nose) would partly but significantly recur occasionally throughout the day, and by evening would be much worse. I tried Reactine 3 days in a row just in case there was some 'getting adjusted' period, but they almost seemed to work less and less each day. Compared to what I was using (Aerius), there is no comparison. Aerius works drastically better, and far longer (I only get minor symptoms returning in the middle of the night, not even enough to bother me but just enough to tell the pill is wearing off). And with Aerius, I get no symptoms at all during the day/eve, even when outside in areas with tons of trees. Basically, for me anyway, reactine works maybe 20-30%, Aerius works 100%. Hope there is someway I can get a refund. Guess different allergy meds work and don't work for different people. Just remembered that another person I know tried them last year too, and they had no effect for her.

It works around an hour after, but lasted only last one day and when I take a 2nd dose the next day, it only lasted 6 hours before I got the itchy skin again. it's supposed to be extra strength and lasting 24 hours but it didn't do that anymore...
