Ya, they can be a problem. They're basically antihistamines and they aren't good for you. They dry you out and I read something about them and Alzheimer's. I've been on Vistaril which is a prescription antihistamine and I think it dried my sinuses out and I may have a sinus problem now. My eyes are very swollen and I have a headache. The bridge of my nose is swollen too. My glasses leave indentations on my nose. So I see a sinus specialist on 2/13. Wish I could get in quicker. So I'm not a fan of antihistamines like your doctor!

Oleptro, otherwise known as Trazodone is usually used for sleep. It was first developed as an antidepressant but wound up working better as a sleep aid 🙂 Does it work for you? I have to take 150mg of it to work.
