help me slay my allergies!

Where in Manhattan can I find nasalcrom and ketotifen eye drops? Do they sell them at Duane Reade?

Bad allergies + Mom's dog + Thanksgiving = misery. My friend (who is an allergist) recommended that I take the above two things with Zyrtec to relieve the itchy eyes/running nose, etc.

So, has anyone seen these anywhere in a drug store in Manhattan? Duane Reade? Rite Aid? Walgreens?

Best answer: If you can't find them in the big drug stores, try an independent pharmacy, such as Pasteur or Irmat, both in the Murray Hill area.

Response by poster: Thanks, I will try those stores if the chains don't pan out.

It's been my experience of the chain drug stores that you can never get anyone on the phone who knows what's in stock, unless you're asking about the latest CoverGirl promotion. A single outlet pharmacy is more likely to know its inventory.

My ENT prescribed nasalcrom to me in the mid eighties; it looks like it is still only available by prescription.
