Help! My allergies have gone crazy

Even though we've had a prolonged winter, my allergies have flared up far worse than normal. I've been taking Claritin but it doesn't seem to be doing anything at all for me. Should I switch to something else? Any suggestions?

If you aren't getting any relief from your usual allergy medication, you may want to drop by the doctor to make sure it isn't something else (like a sinus infection). I've had some unusually bad problems with my allergies this year and I went to the doc last week and he put me on an antibiotic. After just a few days I felt much better  and now my regular allergy medication seems to be working fine again.
