Non-drowsy is a better choice when you have to participate in, ya know, life.
Take a second generation antihistamine. Claritin and Alegra will give you relief with minimal drowsiness.
It's also important that you take second generations every day, they don't work nearly as well when taken "as needed." If you still have no benefit, a lot of people have success with daily intranasal corticosteroids, aka Flonase and whatever others are available over the counter.
I tried Zyrtec when I was younger, didn't help me. I take Claritin but it's super expensive. Everyone's different though. I recommend taking two allergy meds with different active ingredients. It's good for the occasional bad day. Be sure they're different active ingredients though or you might accidentally overdose...
Bwaha! Proof that there's a secret partnership between the producers of Benadryl, who are a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, and those of Mountain Dew (PepsiCo)! Get 'em nice and tired with the ol' Benedryl and then BAM!—you've increased the customer base for a certain neon green nectar, Mountain Dew. Some of the additional profit goes back to J&J, of course, and don't get me STARTED on the mind controlling agent added to the Mtn. Dew formula in 1961 (seriously, my tinfoil hat blocks my eyes a bit and makes it hard to type).
