iVillage.com: 9 Medicine Cabinet Must-Haves

Antihistamine

Uses: Drying up runny noses and postnasal drip, which can cause coughing

A non-stop runny nose is no fun (and not pretty), so keep antihistamines in your medicine cabinet. “[Benadryl] may make you sleepy, but newer non-sedating medications such as loratadine (Claritin) are not as effective for nasal symptoms due to colds,” says Maria Marzella Mantione, Pharm.D., associate clinical professor at St. John’s University in Queens, New York. And avoid formulas that treat a laundry-list of symptoms. “Multi-symptom cold medications are not your best choice,” says Mantione. “You usually don’t have every symptom listed on the box and it’s never advisable to take medications you don’t need.”
