I've got really bad allergies as well and have been sneezing my head off since march. lol The only antihistamine that ever works for me is benedryl. I rarely take it though because it makes me way too sleepy to even function. I just suffer through it. Have you ever tried nasal irrigation? It doesn't really reduce my sneezing much but it really helps a lot with congestion. For my eyes I just use lubricating eye drops and it makes them feel so much better.

There are a lot of different products out there for nasal irrigation. Some of them look difficult to use. I got one that's fairly inexpensive and it's really easy to use. Here's a link to the website I got it from. I got the kit, it's a bit more expensive than some of the other options but it comes with a measuring cup and everything to help you make sure you mix the saline solution properly. http://www.natlallergy.com/product.asp?pn=1557&bhcd2=1182296043
