Allergies vs. Sleep -- TO THE DEATH!

So last week I decided I'd try switching up my allergy medication. I've been taking Zyrtec (well, the generic) daily since we acquired Buddha, but over time it seems to have been messing up my already-precarious sleep more and more. And as this spring it doesn't actually seem to have been doing much for my allergies, I decided I'd try swapping out for a different one, opting for Allegra (well, the generic).

WHOA. Sudden awakeness. O.o Even staying up way too late hanging out with the #TwitterPonies, I'm suddenly alert, energetic, and gloriously awake! My mood went sproinging up three notches, which believe me was very welcome considering where my mood was at that point.

The Allegra was slightly less effective at dealing with the allergy symptoms than the Zyrtec, tho, so for the weekend I decided to try Claritin.

Big mistake. Itchy. Rashy. Scratchy eyeballs. >.< Awake still, which is nice, but awake and trying not to crawl out of my own skin, not so hot.

So, yeah, switching back to the Allegra tonight. A little bit of allergy + being awake seems to be the best balance I'm going to find, at least for now.

In Other News...

Finally saw Avengers yesterday and enjoyed it muchly. Lots of great moments, one emotional gutpunch (someone in the theater actually went "No!!!" when [redacted] died-- I didn't know people actually did that), and nice to see The Hulk finally get a decent movie. And yes, the schwarma scene was brilliant. Exactly perfect.

Anyway, that's enough chatter for now, got a lot to do this weekend. Seeya later, all!

I was with other sf fans and when that scene happened, one of them hissed 'Damn you Joss Whedon'. Made me choke on my drink. But yes, so appropriate.

I find Reactine a good non-drowsy allergy tablet. (generic, of course :) )
