Getting the Hyposensibilisierung injections is a lot of hassle but its so worth doing.

I am having that too, I am in my 2nd year of it and it has helped already. If I forget my medication, I don't have headaches so bad I can't think and massive earaches going into ear infections. I still get itchy eyes and stuffy nose, for that I take Cetirizine, which worked well even before the Hyposensibilisierung injections. Birch is my worst allergen so this part of the season I ought be really suffering so I know that Hyposensibilisierung injections work.

I'd kill for a bottle of vancenase right about now...

 

I´d kill for six foot of snow!

 

On the positive side, I guess within the next three weeks or so the early pollen sufferers should be feeling better again!

Just wanted to share what’s been working for me during this allergy season. A friend from the States recommended the nasal spray Dymista, and I resisted getting it because I hate using nasal sprays, but then the Birke started, and my doctor said it was too late to start the Hyposensibilisierung, so I decided to give it a try. TK won’t cover it unless it’s prescribed by a specialist, so I had to take the risk and pay the 37€. On a side note, this medicine costs $200 without insurance in the US. Highway robbery!

 

Anyway, long story short, it has worked wonders!!!! I haven’t taken a pill in about three days and I feel great. Still have to use my asthma pump, but everything else stopped itching and running. 

If you’re really suffering and nothing seems to be working, this might be worth giving a try!

Thanks, I will share that info with Himself. Why can't a Hausarzt write the prescription?

Not really sure. When I asked, the Arzthelferin couldn’t give me a clear answer. My friend in the States said her insurance would cover it only if the doctor said that absolutely nothing else had worked. Perhaps it’s the same here

As it turns out, Himself has found another miracle spray this year. He is so happy. It is called Mometa Hexal and it costs about €20 at the Apotheke and € 10 or 11 online. He thinks he ordered from docmorris.de. Maybe you'd like to try it as a cheaper alternative.

I just checked. I also got Mometahexal last week from my doctor and IIRC I only paid the 5€ prescription fee.

Will definitely check it out! Thanks!

Does he suffer from severe allergies? My allergies start in March and end in September. This year they started in February, and I had to take a week off from work because it was so bad. That’s what made my friend recommend the spray; her allergies are just as severe and started to affect her life
