“I don’t know what I’d do without astelin. It significantly improved my severe allergy symptoms immediately. No longer waking in the middle of the night with an itchy throat, can actually breathe throughout the day! I do wake up congested, but 10 minutes after my astelin dose I’m good to go. I do take it in conjunction with an oral antihistamine as well, but not sure if I still need it…I just kept taking it since I was already using it before.”

“It relieves my sneezes and nose itching just ten minutes after using it,unlike most oral antihistamines itâ€™s the only thing that has worked for my rhinitis! It has definitely improved my quality of life. Just have your head tilted to your chin to avoid bitter taste.”

“I have pretty many constant allergies – all year I’m sneezing and clearing my throat. That has completely stopped by taking astelin spray twice a day. I cannot say enough good things about it. I initially had the bad taste and minor stinging. The stinging went away after a few uses. The bad taste was due to me not reading the directions! It clearly says to tilt your head downward when spraying. I started doing this and have had zero aftertastes. When it is severe allergy season, I use this and it works like a charm. If you’re on the fence about taking this, give it some time. You’ll be glad you did.”
