It’s spring time here in Australia and we haven’t had any rain for about 4 months. So what does that mean you may wonder…. well hay fever is rife. So much pollen in the air, as well as dust storms and smoke haze from recent bush fires. I don’t normally suffer from hay fever but this year I do.
Which means more medication. The thing to remember is you have to be extra extra careful when mixing over the counter medications with bipolar meds. Ingredients like sudoephadrine can keep you wide awake at night, and can cause a high mood episode. Other things like steroids with asthma attacks can do similar things to people with bipolar. So always check with your pharmacist.
