    ALLERGIES

    IF YOUR STUDENT HAS  SEASONAL ALLERGIES  PLEASE TAKE NOTE!  THERE ARE SOME GREAT OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS THAT CAN HELP.  ZYRTEC (generic name CETIRIZINE) AND  CLARITIN (generic name LORATIDINE) ARE SOLD WITHOUT A PRESCRIPTION AND CAN BE FOUND AT ANY NEIGHBORHOOD PHARMACY.  THESE MEDICATIONS ARE TAKEN ONLY ONCE A DAY-I RECOMMEND MAKING IT PART OF A BEDTIME ROUTINE. 

    FLONASE AND NASACORT ARE BOTH SOLD OVER THE COUNTER AS WELL.  BOTH OF THESE NASAL SPRAYS ARE VERY EFFECTIVE IN HELPING TO PREVENT THE SYMPTOMS OF SEASONAL ALLERGIES.  THESE ARE A LITTLE MORE EXPENSIVE SINCE THERE IS NO GENERIC FORM AVAILABLE.

    *MOST MEDICATION CAN BE TAKEN AT HOME BEFORE OR AFTER SCHOOL.
