Hi John, I have been taking Allegra now for a couple of years. I take one 60 mg tablet a day, every day, clog or not. There are times of the year that I get a little clogged in the ears, but nothing like I did before taking Allegra. and it passes in a day or two
As you probably read in my other posts, I have had tubes put in my ears numerous time. Each time they were clogged within hours. My ENT told me once that I would need to come in every day and have the stuff suctioned out, which he wouldn't and I couldn't do.
I have been tested and tested for allergies, I believe I have some that are below the surface sort of speak, but nothing that jumps right out so the docs can say this is one!! I do have a significant hearing loss I think from all the clogged times as well as scar tissue on the ear drum from the tubes being put in so many times. Haven't gotten hearing aids though because I started on Allegra.
Also, my son is still taking the Allegra. It has been about a year now. He can smell now and taste food all the time. He went through numerous tests even seeing a neurologist who couldn't find anything wrong and suggested an allergy pill to see if it would help.
I am not happy to have to take another pill all the tilme, but it sure is better than feeling like your head is stuffed with cotton and you are in your own bubble and can't participate in life because you can't hear anything but your own voice and heart beat. Believe it or not, but my primary care doc thought of the Allegra the ENT said he didn't know what to do for me. Hope this helps. I have been surprised how many of us suffer from clogging of the eustation tubes. Thought it was just me.
