Can I drive a car when taking allergy and sinus medications?

Many allergy and sinus medications, especially those that contain antihistamines, might make you drowsy, so it might make it difficult to drive safely. The best approach is to avoid driving the first time you use a new medication, to see how it affects you. Sometimes side effects, such as drowsiness and difficulty staying alert, get milder after a day or two. Pay attention to how you feel, and if you are drowsy, sleepy, tired or have trouble staying alert, do not drive.
