Excuse me, Doctor... but are All The Drugs right for me?

I've decided to actually use my medical insurance as it was intended, rather than waiting for some body part to fall off. I have my first ever physical scheduled in 2 weeks. How do I bring up health concerns with my doctor in a way that doesn't make me sound like a hypochondriac with an internet connection? [more inside]

Practical pet home visit tips for pet allergy sufferers

What practical, non-medical tips do you have for pet allergy sufferers who will have to stay in a home with a pet for multiple days? Next month I'll be faced with this. Reading previous questions, I saw a good suggestion - bring your own Pillow Case. What other things do you do when you know you have to live with someone with a pet for a few days? Any nonmedical suggestions for me, the visitor, are welcome, and I'd love to hear any kooky things you have done in the past that somehow worked for you.

Must survive for 3 days without antihistamines

I have to stop taking antihistamines for 3 days in order for my allergist to run a test. It's looking like an impossible task - I've already changed the appointment date once because my hives were too much to handle, and I'm sure I would've torn my skin off. So how can I actually do this? Any tips for surviving what looks like idiopathic urticaria? [more inside]

My eyes are going to pop out of my head.... thank you Spring!

Hello fellow Metafilterians, now that allergy season is upon us, does anyone recommend the best OTC med for: pressure on the eyes, chest congestion, stuffy nose, and sore throat? It's much worse in the morning. Coughing up yellow awfulness (sorry, gross). Claritin and Mucinex-D do NOT work. Sudafed works like a charm but knocks me out, literally for 2 days. Not sure what's out there, haven't had allergies in a couple of years.

We are coming up to hay fever season where I live and I usually suffer badly for a week or two every spring. Here is something I have wondered for years: why does a nose that sometimes drips and runs continuously for sixteen hours a day dry up and stop for the other eight while I am asleep?

What risks are involved with taking more pseudoephedrine if the first dose didn't last anywhere near 24 hours?

The warnings on the Wal-Itin D box say "do not take more than once every 24 hours." Most medications warn against taking more than X every Y hours, but they are usually hedging their bets. Is this kind of medication different, and, if it is, can I take something else that might help without worrying about contraindication? (Sinuses-want-me-dead information inside) [more inside]
