Seasonal & Indoor allergies

Because they change with the seasons, outdoor allergies are often called seasonal allergies. Seasonal allergies are caused by an overreaction of the immune system to certain allergens found outside, like those from mold spores and tree, grass or weed pollens. In contrast, indoor allergies can happen any time of the year and just like outdoor allergies, they can be the source of symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion and itchy, watery eyes. However, since many people spend more time inside during colder months, indoor allergies can be especially troublesome in the winter.

Whether you have outdoor or indoor allergies, our pharmacists can help by giving you advice about the different lifestyle habits to adopt to reduce your exposure to allergens and, if conditions allow, prescribe treatment to relieve your allergy symptoms, if necessary.


Eligibility criteria and details

The pharmacist MAY PRESCRIBE a medication if:

  • The patient has already been diagnosed by a healthcare professional who is qualified to prescribe.
  • A prescription for the condition has already been written.

The pharmacist CANNOT PRESCRIBE a medication if:

  • More than 5 years have passed since the last prescribed treatment.

Unless there is clinical justification or a supply shortage, the pharmacist should normally re-prescribe the drug listed on the reference prescription. When prescribing a different drug, the pharmacist should ensure that the drug prescribed is in a class of drugs of equal or lesser potency than the one originally prescribed.

If more than 5 years have passed since the last prescribed treatment or if this condition has never been diagnosed, the pharmacist may still prescribe or recommend an over-the-counter medication if the patient's clinical situation or any other circumstance justifies it.
