Spring can come early for allergy sufferers. In many parts of the U.S., trees begin releasing pollen, one of the most common allergy triggers,
in February and continue through May. In southern states, pollen season can begin as early as January.

The first step is to avoid or reduce your exposure to pollen and other substances that trigger your symptoms. If that’s not enough, you
should talk to your doctor about trying an antihistamine medicine, such as ZYRTEC® (cetirizine HCl), to relieve sneezing, runny nose, and
itchy, watery eyes. If your allergy symptoms are limited to your eyes, allergy eye drops may be an alternate solution.
• ZYRTEC® 10mg provides the fastest 24-hour relief of upper-respiratory allergy symptoms* (Day, 1998 and Day, 2001).1 ZYRTEC®
is available over-the-counter (OTC) at original prescription strength.
• VISINE®-A® provides more powerful relief of red allergy eyes than the leading prescription allergy eye drops. VISINE®-A®
combines an antihistamine with a redness reliever for the relief of itchy, red eyes that starts working in minutes.

If you have a flexible spending account (or health savings account), these OTC medicines may be eligible expenses. Talk to your health
