Non-medication ideas to consider You can also try to limit exposure to allergens by controlling your diet or environment. Saline eye drops or nasal spray do not have any active ingredients, but they can help control environmental allergies. Your doctor may also recommend homeopathic or alternative remedies that are worth trying.

Allegra produces a medication which has a reputation for being the best over-the-counter allergy medicine. For those who don’t want to have to remember to take their medication several times a day it’s a pretty clear win, and its efficacy speaks for itself.

For the non-drowsy allergy medicine option, you'll want to look for a non-sedating oral antihistamine, Dr. Kalra says. She recommends OTC options such as Allegra (fexofenadine), Zyrtec (cetirizine), Xyzal (levocetirizine) and Claritin (loratadine). The antihistamine in Allegra acts for 24 hours and takes about an hour to kick in.
