Before you start self-treating with over-the-counter medications, the most important thing to do first is discuss all of your symptoms with a doctor to determine whether you have allergies and what the underlying causes might be.

(Before taking a new supplement, talk with a doctor about the risks and benefits and potential interactions with medications and other supplements.)
