What Are The Effects When You Taking Anti-Histamine /allergy Meds? & Scientifically What Happens? ?

I ask bc after I took the allergy medicine, I got super sleepy (imo it's stronger than melatonin) it was also a "different sleepiness" less "groggy sleepiness" more of a lights out fast sleepiness... then today my meds feel like the day I first took them.. as if the allergy meds hit the "reset button" on my tolerance. but idk I'm probably wrong but I'd like to hear others.

If you have allergies, you could consider a non-sedating antihistamine like Allegra or Zyrtec. Benadryl is common and does cause drowsiness.
If you slept well last night, that may be the reason you feel well today. One of the significant problems for PWN is fragmented nighttime sleep. Since I have taken medication to help me sleep at night, I have felt much better during the day. Consider speaking to your doctor about this- maybe something safe and non-addictive at bedtime could be a help.
I am not aware of any likelihood of an antihistamine resetting your tolerance to stimulants. My guess is that you just got improved sleep last night and feel better than usual. I hope this helps.

What is the name of the allergy med that your father made you take? And, other than the stuffed nose, what other allergy symptoms are you experiencing?
You may want to look up and read about "Levocetirizine"...it is one of the new generation of anti-histamines and is effective against both stuffy nose and itchy skin.
