I certainly enjoy hearing about wise patients! You did the right thing, Monty. Tavist-D is an antihistamine/decongestant combination available over-the-counter, and can be found in generics. After your 9/15 evaluation, you can discuss management strategies with your otolaryngologist (ENT) or allergy specialist.
I wish for you and your fiance a most memorable honeymoon, Monty. I can't think of a better way to kick off a lifetime of loving.
