Using caffeine to relieve allergies

I, like a lot of other people around these times, suffer from pollen allergies. This year the concentration of pollen in my area is extremely high, resulting in a clogged nose, itching throath and red swollen eyes. And the "over-the-counter" drugs for allergies doesn't seem to help me much. What does seem to work however, is a couple of strong cups of coffee. The last few days I have been carefully "medicating" :wink: myself, and i have been allmost completely symptom-free, even though the pollen-concentration have rissen even higher.

I would like to hear what thoughts/experiences you other allergics have about this issue.
