Question: Hi hows it going this morning,?
the reason for my message is simple. I have serious allergies to cats and dogs. I have moved in with my gf about 8 months ago and have been suffering ever since. I work 2 weeks away and come home a week at a time. Well putt it this way i havnt breathed right in about all 8 of those months. And personally sick of spending crazy money on allergy pills and noise spray. And since i cant make the cat dissappear.. well i need you to write me a perscription to whatever will do the trick and be of as much help and a cure to this cat as i can.
My symptoms include
Crazy violent sneezing
clogged noistralls (Both) going on about 8 months.
hives,
sleepyness, that cant be fufilled due to lack of breathing capability.
runny and itchy noice,
Red eyes and itchy eyes,
Either way ive readnup on shots, but i would prefer a powerful pill or something i can take before i get home every 3 weeks from work.
Please let me know my best way to deal with this problem. thanks XXXXX

You should take low dose steroid and avil.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Since routine allergy pills and nasal Spray are not working in your case, you should take low dose steroid (methyl prednisone 4mg)and avil.
You should start these drugs 1 week before going to home and continue till you stays at home.
This will mostly help you in symptoms at home.
