Conquering Allergy Season with Allegra

For the past four years - almost to the day - we've been waging the allergy battle for JT.
When he was three-years-old he had this incessant cough that kept him awake
night after night, he had a constant runny nose and dark, puffy circles under his eyes.
We went to the pediatrician a half a dozen times without any solution to his problem.
I was getting so frustrated and then one visit - with a different pediatrician than we usually saw - 
she gave us the answer - ALLERGIES!!!!!!
And once we had an answer, I was ready to fight back and help JT get some relief.

JT's allergies are the worst in the Spring and Fall - especially when the Santa Ana winds come blowing through. And it seems to sneak up on me. I think we're doing great and he's well controlled when suddenly his coughing, weezing, sneezing, making weird throat noises to stop the itching.
That's why I'm super excited about this new site - - a site from Allegra to help you stay ahead of the high pollen counts and effectively battle back to keep the symptoms of your allergies well controlled.

I checked out the pollen count for the week - using my zip code - and then signed up to get text alerts to my cell phone when pollen counts are supposed to be high.
I'm really excited about this option and I'm hoping that with the alerts I'll be able 
to stay ahead of JT's allergies with Allegra so that he can continue to play outside with his
friends even when the Santa Ana winds bring their worst.

You can also download and print coupons for $4 off adult and $2 off children's Allegra
on the website and sign up to receive future coupons.
Right now CVS/pharmacy has the Allegra Children's tablets and liquid for $9.99 with your CVS Extra Care Card, so you can get a really great deal on Allegra.

We love our CVS/pharmacy because it has a drive-thru.
I believe that is the most fantastic option that any pharmacy can offer a mom 
or a sick person - let's limit the exposure!
This time we did head into CVS/pharmacy to check out the Allegra selection.

I was relieved that the Children's Allegra was on the same aisle as the rest of the Allegra.
A lot of times the children's medications will be on different aisles and it's frustrating to track that down. CVS had it across the aisle on a separate shelf and I appreciated the ease of being able to find it.

I'm really thankful for allergy products like Allegra that let JT be a kid and play outside, climb trees, ride his bike and enjoy the outdoors year round without the fear of his allergy induced asthma making life difficult. I'm also excited about the website to help me keep track of the pollen alerts and keep JT healthy and happy.
