This reader glad Legislature sidestepped new limitations on allergy meds

To The Editor:

The recent report by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America confirmed what I’ve already known for years – Oklahoma cities are bad for allergies.

According to the report of the 100 worst U.S. cities for spring allergies, both Oklahoma City and Tulsa have moved up in the rankings and are now listed at the fourth and nineteenth spots respectively. 

For those of us who suffer from allergies, this comes as no surprise.

It should also serve as a reminder of how important it is to continue to protect consumers’ access to popular cold and allergy medicine. Without meds like Claritin-D and Sudafed, I wouldn’t be able to function.

So, a hearty thanks to lawmakers for not placing additional restrictions on the sale of these medicines. My sinuses are particularly grateful.

Sincerely, Jenna Harlow, Oklahoma City, OK.
