  Effect of coffee on allergy

  Men's Health

  Dr. James Wedner

  James Wedner, M.D., is the director of the Allergy and Asthma Center at Washington University in St. Louis and has been in the field for 40 years.

  Doctor's Advice

  He doesn't have allergies, but he still won't prescribe anything for his patients that he wouldn't use himself. "I have tasted every medicine that I've given to my patients," he says. He says he rarely gets sick (thanks to a daily vitamin C tablet), but when he does get congested he'll use a baby's bulb syringe and saltwater solution to clear his pipes.

  Another tip from Dr. Wedner: Coffee is a decongestant. If you drink a lot of coffee while taking oral decongestants, it may make the pills more effective.

  If you have testimony to coffee as a combat for allergy, please send your comment to us or email healthlineplus@maryjay.org. I would like to know if it makes a different regarding to what type of coffee you drink. caffeinated or decafe

  Thanks for sharing your experience
