is there a substitute for lodrane 24d that actually works? i have tried several other brands that seem to do next to nothing for me. the only other thing i have ever had work for me were alka-seltzer fast-melts... an orange flavored melt in the mouth tablet that i have not been able to find for years and the reason i finally had lodrane 24d prescribed for me. it was a miserable spring for me and i'm not happy that the fall alergy season is almost here for me. re-location is not an option for me and my family... i am just looking for something to that will help me breath easier when i need it and to not sound like a gurgling coffee pot when i breath... no i dont smoke either. would also be nice to be able to sleep again.
