Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually there are a number of medications that you can use in order to control these symptoms but the ones which would be safest for you and would NOT interact with your current medications would include OTC antihistamines like allegra, zyrtec or claritin. And if needed you can use nyquil at night. But use the OTC antihistamines first which should clear up most of teh symptoms.

Do you have any more questions?
