Pharmacy Sees Rise In Allergy Medicine Sales

Posted: Updated:
With colder than usual winters for many parts of the country, a lot of people are wondering if the polar vortex will turn spring into a pollen vortex.

While winters extended cold does mean less of spring, it may also mean that we're in store for a shorter more intense allergy season. Experts say that while trees release pollen at different times, this year, many of them will release at the same time due to the late start.

The Minot CVS pharmacy has already started seeing an increase in people coming in for allergy medicine. For those of you who are looking for instant allergy relief, go for the nose spray.

“The nose spray works because it goes directly through the head and the pill normally has to be digested first before it could take effect. Normally, people would be better off with the nasal spray instead of the pill,” says CVS Pharmacy Technician Deaunte Freeman.

Everybody is different, so if you find that you're not getting relief in a couple of weeks you might want to check in with an allergist.
