As I write this, it is difficult to imagine that the Hayfever season will soon be upon us. In preparation for the
runny nose, sneezes and irritated eyes, I have looked at the current common treatments available. Whilst
patients are encouraged to self-medicate, many dispensing patients do not have easy access to over-the
-counter medications and thus rely on prescriptions from their doctors. In addition, some of the patients
who have self-medicated may be looking for more effective medication, which is often only available
as a POM (Prescription Only Medication).
