Answer:

Most likely you have allergies, and this time of year it may well be a sensitivity to dust.  More specifically, dust mites, which are very prevalent in your bed sheets and mattress.  I'm not quite familiar with the brands of medicine you listed, but these are an antihistamine pill and nasal steroid spray.  Both of these medicines are very effective for allergies.
