Antihistamines can be effective in alleviating allergy symptoms, but they can also make you sleepy and cause other side effects.
The American Academy of Family Physicians says possible side effects of antihistamines include:
• Drowsiness, which can affect the ability to safely drive a car or manage machinery
• Difficulty thinking clearly
• Dryness of the eyes and mouth
• Headache
• Abdominal pain

Tuesday Tip: Routine vision screenings can help to identify eye problems early, before permanent vision loss occurs. According to C.P. Wilkinson, MD, Chair of GBMC’s Department of Ophthalmology, people should take note of any changes to their visual abilities and discuss them with an ophthalmologist, especially if the changes are sudden and/or accompanied by discomfort or cause a disruption to daily life.

To make an appointment with an ophthalmologist at GBMC, call 443-849-2106.

Pollen and mold are common culprits of seasonal allergies, but there are things you can do to help minimize symptoms.
The American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology offers these suggestions:
• At home and in the car, close the windows and run the air conditioning if needed.
• When pollen and mold levels are high, stay indoors. Wear a pollen mask during a prolonged stay outdoors.
• When you come inside, wash your hair and change your clothes.
• Ask someone else to mow the lawn and rake leaves.
• Don't hang clothing or linens outside to dry.
• Take allergy medication as prescribed.
