Allergies saisonnières

Symptoms and treatments

Seasonal allergies have the following symptoms: 

  • Sneezing; 
  • Itchy eyes, nose and palate;
  • Watery eyes;
  • Stuffy, runny nose.

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, this service will help you to

  • Avoid having to see your doctor, if you have similar symptoms and your treatment was effective in the past; 
  • Get the best treatment for your allergic rhinitis and seasonal allergies; 
  • Ensure that your health is taken care of by your pharmacist who is always accessible; 
  • Obtain prescription eye drops (antihistamine drops) from your pharmacist to reduce symptoms such as red, watery eyes.

Before giving you a prescription, your pharmacist will meet with you to examine such things as your state of health, your overall situation and the list of medications that you already take. Afterwards, they will be able to decide on the best way to proceed, in order to ensure that any treatment is still appropriate for you.

Rest assured that your pharmacist will continue to follow up with you in order to make sure that your treatment is still as effective for your condition, and will then advise your doctor. 

However, if your pharmacist judges that your treatment is no longer the optimal solution, or they refuse to prescribe a medication, which they have the right to do, they will refer you to a more appropriate health care professional, such as your doctor or a specialized nurse practitioner (SNP).
