I am one of those crazy people who will tell you they like to work out. From my favorite dance classes at the gym to even weight training, I somehow find the most relaxing part of my day is my workout. This year California has experienced a super bloom of flowers, making my watery eyes; sneezing; runny nose; and itchy nose symptoms at an all time high. I also love to spend time outdoors hiking and exploring nature so taking something for my spring time allergies is something I have to do. I suffer a lot from the itchy watery eyes and it can even start to affect how much I am able to sleep.
And I’m not alone. According to a recent social experiment comparing allergy sufferers to non-allergy sufferers, allergy sufferers had a harder time falling asleep and staying asleep than people without allergies. The allergy sufferers also reported that they felt less rested and less physically active during the day than the participants without allergies.
Luckily I’ve found something that effectively treats my allergies for 24 hours. Xyzal® Allergy 24HR is now available over-the-counter (OTC) at full prescription strength. Xyzal® Allergy 24HR treats the symptoms of my allergies and is effective from hour one to hour twenty four. It works all day and really helps me get back to doing the things I like to do most. Like dancing is my favorite class at the gym without my nose running. 😀 I also know that, because my symptoms are relieved, I get a better night’s sleep and am able to get the rest that I need.

Xyzal provided me with a ‘Wise Up, Rise Up’ kit full of items to help me have a better night’s sleep and a more productive day.

About the Social Experiment
This social experiment was sponsored by Sanofi Consumer Healthcare and conducted by Russell Research. It used wearable devices to assess the sleep patterns and activities of 160 participants (80 allergy sufferers and 80 non-sufferers) for 30 consecutive days between October and December 2016. During the experiment, participants also completed a daily survey to track perceptions of their allergy symptoms (for the 80 allergy sufferers), sleep patterns and activities, as a way to provide additional context for the wearable device data. For the purposes of the experiment, allergy sufferers are defined as those who suffer from moderate or severe indoor and outdoor allergies in the fall or year round, and who take allergy medication 2 days per week or less.
