A clinical study: Allergic rhinitis

It is March and Mr. JA, a 20-year-old university student, comes into a community pharmacy to
buy something for a runny nose. On questioning he has had symptoms for the last eight weeks
which he thought was a head cold and has been self-medicating with Vicks Sinex nasal spray and
Sudafed tablets. His runny nose, frequent sneezing and runny eyes are continuing to be
troublesome and he is worried about his forthcoming exams.
Mr. JA’s previous medical history includes porphyria and childhood asthma. His past drug
history comprises salbutamol inhaler and beclometasone inhaler for childhood asthma.
