Or something else? I don't know what to take. I have had what seems like a cold for several weeks now and I went to the doctor and she said I am having allergies. She suggested I pick something up from over the counter. I thought I'd just run to the drug store and grab some allergy medication and I can't believe how many choices there are. Can someone epxlain the differences in them, if there are any differences. Thank you for your help.

Over-the counter meds can be very confusing. Since your doctor did not give you any specific recommendation, I would suggest that you ask your pharmacist. They are very knowlegable and most of them are quite willing to explain things to you.
