There are many other oral and nasal medications that can be taken for allergic rhinitis. There are also eye drops that can be used to treat itchy eyes. Some of these other medications include other antihistamines, other corticosteroids, decongestants, cromolyn sodium, and ipratropium bromide.

While it is safe to combine some allergy medications, certain combinations may be dangerous or may cause excessive drowsiness. Therefore, it is always important to talk to your healthcare provider about what you are taking, including over-the-counter medications. Do not start any new medications in addition to the treatment you have been prescribed here without first talking to a healthcare provider.
