A 35-year-old comes to the clinic. He states, “It’s getting close to allergy season and I need something to keep me from getting sick. Last year the doc gave me a shot, a spray, some pills, and an inhaler. They worked really  well but I don’t remember what they were. Can I have those things again? I just can’t afford to miss work.”

Please answer the following questions in a narrative format:  Discuss the epidemiology of allergies. What are your treatment options (consider pharmacoeconomic)? Compare first and second-generation antihistamines. What education will you provide to the patient?
