What is hay fever?

Hay fever refers to an allergy to pollen - in fact, it’s one of the most common allergies in the UK. Pollen particles swarm the air all year round, but it typically worsens when it’s warm, humid and windy between the months of March and September.


It presents symptoms similar to the common cold, however, hay fever can last for weeks and months at a time. If you suffer from asthma, hay fever may trouble you more, so always speak to your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist for advice if you’re struggling. 


You may experience the following symptoms:


  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • A runny or blocked nose

Which antihistamine makes you drowsy?

Most people know that there are two types of antihistamines - drowsy and non-drowsy, and there are two types simply due to the advancement in pharmaceuticals. Drowsy antihistamines are known as first-generation antihistamines, such as chlorphenamine, hydroxyzine, and promethazine. 


The non-drowsy antihistamines, which include cetirizine, loratadine, and fexofenadine, are known as second-generation antihistamines. The only difference between them is the effect of drowsiness, which means that the first-generation antihistamines can also be used as other forms of medical treatment, like insomnia.
