New doctor, new meds

We had our first visit to our new local doctor last week. He was a cheerful, chatty older gentleman who turned out to also be a Columbia graduate. He and I probably spent more time reminiscing about Columbia than talking about our allergy symptoms, which is what brought us in in the first place. He gave us an Astelin nose spray and some Allegra D pills to try. They seem to work better than what we’ve been using (at least for me), but the Astelin is foul stuff. After I spray it in my nose in the morning, it’s like a skunk curled up and died in my head for the next hour. Still, if it keeps me from being runny-nosed all summer, I’ll use it.
