Generally you need to be off long acting, 2nd generation antihistamines ( zyrtec, allegra, xyzal, claritin) for 7-10 days prior to your appointment.
The short acting, older antihistamines, like Benadryl only need 2-4 days.
Certain nasal sprays, containing antihistamines (Azelastine, Dymista ), will also interfere, and you would have to be off for up to 7 days.
Other allergy medications such as Nasal steroid sprays (flonase, nasacort) and montelukast (singulair) will not interfere with your testing and can be continued.

Dr. Zarei is one of the finest. most expert, caring physicians I have ever had, maybe THE finest, and her team, including Naren and Michelle, is wonderful.
Amazing physician and staff! Dr. Zarei always takes the time to explain diagnosis and treatment – to ensure proper patient compliance!
Dr Zarei is very caring, kind, and a very good physician. She takes a detailed history, and takes into account my other current issues. She will follow up, and is very proactive about taking care of you as a person and not just the disease. Will be a patient of hers forever. Her assistant Nerin is amazing as well.
