BzzAgent: ClariSpray from Claritin Nasal Spray for Allergies #Review #Sponsored

dsc_1962

Most people only associate Spring as the worse allergy time since everything is blooming. Allergens differ with everyone and I myself suffer worsening of symptoms in Fall and late Spring, with Summer and then Winter a close second. Yup, I am a sneezy mess all year around and even though I take Claritin already for seasonal allergies, I need a boost when I am at my worst, so you bet I was eager to try an OTC allergy product and see how well it performs.

ClariSpray is made by Claritin but it does replace/substitute the use of the pill itself. The nasal spray should not been seen as being the same medication. ClariSpray, is a non-drowsy allergy medication geared towards combating outside allergens and directly with what affects the nasal passages. The spray in addition helps with pet allergies caused by exposure to cats and dogs, and indoor ones like Dust, Mold and Dust Mites. Being able to use another medication to fight inflammation and congestion, is what can give the user more relief. I take a decongestant and an allergy pill, but there are times that pills alone do not provide relief and this is why I started using a nasal spray and I went through many to find the one that worked for me.

Verdict:
Having a new puppy is great and especially after we lost our dog to cancer in September. What is not so great about puppies in general, is they love to get into EVERYTHING! I may be hearing my own voice in nightmares saying “NO” because that is how I spend most of my day. I add some “stop it and drop that”, but pretty much trying to get the pup to stop playing with yard stuff. We have palms and they bloom beautiful smelling flowers that produce the most beautifully stuffed noses. Well, the pup loves those flowers, the grass, bougainvillea flowers and leaves are the biggest hit. Why buy toys when yard waste is the greatest puppy toy ever! Then puppy comes in and brings all the outside in with her and we are now bathing her every 3 to 4 days and usually until our noses and throats can’t take the garden the puppy seems to keep on bringing in with her. You bet I would try anything and even a nasal spray if it means I can get at least some rest from sneezing and blowing my nose countless times a day.

ClariSpray contains fluticasone propionate and this medication helps to give quick relief and especially administered directly via a nasal spray. I tried the spray and the mist it delivers is not overwhelming or even too hard that it causes discomfort when used. Within 5 minutes, I felt less congested and within 15 minutes, I could actually think and start being productive. Yeah, that means a lot to anyone who suffers greatly from allergies. You can’t think clearly and just moving and bending hurts when your congested but at the same time miraculously trying to control a forever flow of mucus that seems to keep tissue companies in business. How I can be stuffed up but still have a runny nose is just one of my amazing qualities! The spray works and no prescription is needed. Being able to get medication that provides actual relief and not needing to make a doctor appointment to then go visit a pharmacy is a double plus for me. The holidays are approaching and a leaky nose is the last thing I want preventing me from actually enjoying them. Oh and what makes this even better…..24 hours relief!

Smiley: Advil Allergy & Congestion Relief

 

DSCN2257

As much as I love Nature, it really does not love me back. I am a hay fever nightmare and Ms. Sneezy should be my middle name. I was always known for caring an entire tissue box around with me in high school because you might as well go with it when you suffer as badly as I do. I already use antihistamine eye drops, a nasal spray and 3 different brands of allergy pills and yes, I still sneeze and suffer. I sometimes think what is the point of taking anything if I still feel the effects and then stop taking stuff to then realize the allergy nightmare could always be darker.

In comes Advil, a box that Smiley sent free of charge, as part of their Advil campaign. One of the pills I take is an OTC and one of the other allergy pills I take is a decongestant. I like that Advil combined both and I’m always celebrating the day I need to take one less pill.

But does it work?

Advil’s Allergy & Congestion relief has several active ingredients that create an effective solution for many allergy suffers. Just the symptoms it provides temporary relief on, is impressive:

  • Temporary relief of symptoms associated with Hay Fever or other upper respiratory allergies and the common cold
  • Runny Nose
  • Itchy/Watery Eyes
  • Itching of the Nose or Throat
  • Sneezing
  • Nasal Congestion
  • Sinus Pressure
  • Headache
  • Minor Body Aches/Pains
  • Fever
  • Reduces Swelling of the Nasal Passages
  • Temporary Restores freer breathing through the Nose

The package should just have a picture of me on the back at this point when it comes to symptoms. I experience all and I love when they get cute and hit me at once.

Combining Chlorpheniramine Maleate, an ingredient used in prevention of the symptoms of allergic conditions (i.e. rhinitis) with Ibuprofen makes a powerful duo. You get the antihistamine with finally a mild pain reliever because having allergies is not just a bothersome condition that alters how you look (bug eyes anyone?), it hurts and just moving and accomplishing simple tasks is difficult. I get headaches just from the pressure alone. Advil also added Phenylephrine HCL, a nasal decongestant so not only do you combat the allergic reaction but it aids with what allergies cause, plugging up your nose, ears, even eyes!

One tablet lasts 4 to 6 hours and I like being able to not medicate when my allergies have subsided. Advil states to not take more than 6 pills in a 24 hour period, unless physician approved.
