May is one of the prettiest months there is with all of the trees budding out and beautiful spring flowers. The downside to all of its beauty is allergies.

With MSA, you need to be cautious with over-the-counter allergy medications. They contain pseudoephedrine which can affect heart, increase blood pressure and interact with any prescription medications you are taking. It is best to check with your doctor first before taking any of these medications.

May brings a cozy spring sunshine that makes your soul smile!
