What's the difference between Children's Claritin and normal Claritin?
And does children's claritin works on a teen? What about an adult?

  The dose. A teen/adult could take the children's version if they wanted to, but they'd have to take a whole bunch of it in order to be effective.

  When did you take the claritin, it takes a while to kick in? And yes you should wait to take the benadryl, at least until bedtime, it's just going to make you tired anyway.

Claritin and alcohol, is that a good combination?
I took a children's Claritin, non drowsy, pill 24-hour relief, and a dissolved tablet a few hours ago. Is it safe to drink a couple of beers as long as I don't overdue it? I'm talking about less than a 6 pack of beer, just to kick back and relax. It is 24 hour Claritin.

  Claritin doesn't make you drowsy anyway and its a once a day pill. You can drink a couple of beers if your couple is the same as everyone else's and only 2 beers.

Is Claritin or Zyrtec better for a Runny Nose?
I have a really awful runny nose and allergies that I need to get rid of as soon as possible. Which one works better and faster to get rid of a stuffy nose- Zyrtec or CHILDREN'S Claritin (I'm 14 years old, so I don't know if I'd be considered a child and if the Children's Claritan would help me)?
Thanks so much! :)

Children's Claritin - dosing schedule?
I give my 3 1/2 year old Children's Claritin OTC. It works great but I'm not sure how long to give it to him. He seems to have allergies year round so should I do like a month on then 2 weeks off or 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off? Any ideas?
Has seen doctor and was prescribed two other prescription meds before we switched him to an OTC. I'm not asking should he be taking the medication, I'm asking about the dosing schedule.

  The main way to most effectively combat his allergic reactions is a daily medication with continuous dosing. His system will not effectively be able to fight allergies if the medication isn't always in his system. In addition, most medications need at least 2 weeks to begin working and more to reach maximum effectiveness.
If you prefer to, you may give it to him for a month on and 2 weeks off, supplementing in between if he relapses in his symptoms. Follow the dosage chart recommended by his pediatrician or drug packaging. Talk to a pharmacist about dosage or for further advice.
Poor thing, allergies make one feel miserable! I hope he gets relief from the medication.

Can I substitute regular Claritin and a decongestant for Claritin D?
My allergies are really bad and Claritin D is the only thing that works. I ran out of it and I don't really have time to leave work today to pick up some more. One of my coworkers has regular Claritin, and I have Dayquil Sinus Relief. Would it be safe to take both of this as kind of a "substitute" for the Claritin D?

  I'll share my experience with Claritin. It may not bother some people, but it should be noted that this
set of side effects COULD occur!!! (dry mouth, agitation, panic
attacks mimicking cardiac distress). Side effects: agitation, and spaciness, the first day. Then, after that, sleep
disorders, waking up at 3 am feeling like I was going to pass out
or die- I have NEVER experienced such a frightening side-effect!
( Probably just my individual intolerance! But I didn't associate it with the drug, and so kept taking it. I ended up in
the emergency room, with mental confusion, and a feeling of heart
troubel, a pressure in the heart area. (would never take this drug again! One doctor told me that HE had had this type of reaction, also! ).

  You should see improvement in about 1/2 -1 hour of taking claritin (often even less) if its allergies. We use it and zyrtec-there are lots on the market-these two are good because they are non drowsy. Colds can go on seemingly forever in little kids. Why dont you take him back to the Dr for a checkup if youre worried? There is plenty of good advice about for managing allergies but the first step is to get a correct diagnosis from your Dr. You can make life unnecessarily difficult trying to manage 'allergies' that your son may not have.
Good luck-I hope he's better soon.

Does anyone know of anything that works better than Claritin-D for allergies?
I've been taking Claritin-d for the past several days, It's helped somewhat with the nasal congestion but i'm still getting major drainage down my throat that's making me cough constantly. Claritin usually works for me so I don't know what to do next.

  It should be fine. Just double check what the medicinal ingredient is in each. As long as they are not the same you should be fine. (I did some wikipedia searching and it seems that they are different ingredients).

That being said - I am NOT a pharmacist nor a doctor, so it is only what I would do. I would recommend that you check with your pharmacist to make sure there are no interactions.

Good luck and I hope you feel better!

Allegra-D vs. Claritin-D? Generic Allegra-D?
Hi!

I've got all kinds of allergies (all pollen and animal hair, basically), and the congestion due to the allergies lead to frequent sinus infections. Because of this, my doctor has been prescribing Allegra-D (12 hour tablet) for years.

Soon, a new year of my health insurance will begin, and that also means I have to pay a high deductible, so I'd like to figure out if it would be cheaper to switch to Claritin-D.

Does someone have experience switching from Allegra-D to Claritin-D?

Is Claritin-D 12 hour or 24 hour better?

About how much do you pay for a month's worth of Claritin-D (i.e. 60 tablets for 12 hour tablets, 30 tablets for 24 hour tablets), if you don't mind my asking?

Are there any other products that combine a non-drowsy antihistamine and a decongestant that you can recommend?

Thank you in advance for your help.

  I am allergic to nature, and have tried every antihistamine on the market.

First, antihistamines are formulated primarily to take care of indoor, or outdoor allergens, or a somewhat random combination of both. It helps to know what your allergies are, and you seem to know, so you're good there.

Allegra-D is OUTSTANDING at taking care of most of my indoor AND outdoor allergies, although is formulated more towards outdoor allergens. No drowsiness.

Claritin-D is OK at taking care of some of my outdoor and some of my indoor allergies - and is primarily formulated to take care of indoor allergens. Mild drowsiness with some people. Claritin comes in both 12 and 24 hour dosing, but the 12 works approximately 8-12 hours, whereas the 24 works approximately 12 hours :-(.

Zyrtec - recently OTC (over the counter) - is GOOD at taking care of outdoor allergens, and is primarily formulated to take care of outdoor - with some indoor allergen benefits, however Zyrtec's formulation causes moderate - extreme drowsiness for many - which is no fun.

Unfortunately, I cannot help you with the approximate cost however, as I haven't had insurance for years, and because I'm in Texas - I just take a 2 hour drive over the border, avoid the doctors fee for an office call, and I get it all without a prescription - and significantly cheaper.

My allergist suggested Advil (TM) Cold & Sinus for supplementing antihistamines, and for doing a little decongestant work - and I've had to use it faithfully for about 20 yrs now.

For my respiratory system and allergy problems, I'd rather pay through the nose for Allegra-D because I know it works, works well, and doesn't make me drowsy. In my opinion, a small cost savings would NOT make me switch. I like to breathe :-).

What you really need to ask yourself is: Just how important is breathing, and what am I willing to pay.

What is the difference between "Children's Motrin" and "Children's Advil"?
When my children have had a fever the "Children's Motrin" very rarely brings down the fever, and I need to piggy back it with Tylenol. When I use the "Children's Advil" the fever starts to break in 20 min. with no Tylenol. They both are a form of Ibuprofen with the same mls.
Here where we are it is very hard to find the "Children's Advil" in any of the pharmacies or stores.

  You are correct that Advil and Motrin are the same product, just different brands of the generic medicine ibuprofin. However, probably the same as with children’s Tylenol (acetominophen), there are different concentration in different preparations so that dosages are completely different depending on if you are using drops, suspensions, elixir or tablets. The most accurate way to determine the correct dose is by the milligrams, not by liquid measure such as teaspoon unless you are sure of the milligram content in the amount and type of liquid you are using.

But you sound well versed in the use of the medication and likely are giving the correct dose. So the next possibility is that separate episodes of illnes create different levels of illness and symptoms and each responds differently to medication and other forms of treating the illness. So an ear infection may respond differently to the medicine than the flu. There are other variables too, such as how well hydrated the child is, what other symptoms are present that the body is fighting, the length of time the symptoms have been present before the med is given, the level of immunity, etc.

You sound like an observant, attentive parent. Hope you all stay healthy!

  I have terrible allergies, and the things that has worked for me the best is to take a Benadryl before bed (make sure you are going to get 8 hours of sleep), it should help you throughout the day.

However, you really should take any medical questions to a doctor or at least the pharmacist. Call your pharmacy and they should be able to help you.

  Aerius for kids. My daughter had no luck even double dosing with Reactine as well as showing every day [to remove dust from her hair] and nasal spray. She has pretty bad allergies, and I found that Aerius is the ONLY one that helps her. She also takes Nasonex nasal spray and is 100% better.

One non OTC we also tried on suggestion of a friend is Omega fish oil supplements. They work really well too. The combination of the three have done amazing things for her allergies

http://www.aerius.ca/en/kids/

It has a coupon too! Nasonex is prescription from your doctor, and fish oil supplements can be found anywhere [Safeway too!] BUT always better to get from a health food store.

Is Singulair a good substitute for Claritin?
I have bad allergies to cats, and I travel to an area where there a few cats every weekend. Normally I take claritin, which will almost completely stop an allergic reaction. We're currently out of Claritin, is Singulair a good substitute?

  Singulair acts on leukotrienes, while Claritin primarily targets histamine. Both can provide temporary relief from allergy symptoms, though there are many other cheap and effective ways to improve your symptoms. Keeping pets out of the bedroom, using an air cleaner and taking herbal antihistamines like butterbur can help treat AND prevent symptoms, whereas Singulair and Claritin only reduce symptoms that already exist.

For a more in-depth view, check out my article, "Remedies for Seasonal Allergies," which includes these and many other tips.

I have a 10 year old bedwetter. The pediatric urologist has prescribed Sanctura.?
From what I'm reading, it says it should not be given to children as adequate studies have not been done on its safety for children. Have any of you given this drug to your children? This happened once before with a drug she prescribed, and when I checked with my pediatrician, he said it's used all the time in children, and it's just a labeling requirement. Any feedback you can provide to me would be appreciated.

  All I would like to say because i am not familiar with this either is that you should monitor your childs intake of fluids from the time he has supper until bedtime. Do not allow him to have sodas and juices and large amounts of water before he goes to sleep. If he goes to bed at 9 p.m. don't let him drink past 7:30 and tell him to use the bathroom before he goes to sleep. Practice this with him every night. I know it's more than just that but it can help, and will help in the future because unless there a medical condition, which there may be, this child needs a strict regiment on his intake of fluids every evening and I'll bet you see quick changes!

Is it Safe to Mix Claritin D and Tylenol Sinus?
I took a Claritin D tablet (Loratadine 10 mg, Pseudoephedrine Sulfate 240 mg) this morning at 8 am because i thought i had an allegery and thats why i had Nascal congestion and pain...

Turns out im sick so now its 9 pm im really suffering from the nasal pain and cant even consentrate.

Would be able to take Tylenol Sinus (Acatamophen 325 mg per cap, Phenylephrine HCI 5 mg per cap....so x2, 650 and 10 mg) right now since Claritin is 24 hour pill?

  I can only recommend this because it works for me and my family 100% of the time for 5 people for sinus infection.
I use it to cure sinus infections. THere are many kinds of bacteria that live in the sinuses, and this gets rid of all the bad ones!.This is the only thing that really helped me --- my Dr. told me about a sinus wash that will kill bacteria.
you need

distilled water
sea salt
liquid chlorophyll and colloidal silver from the health food store.
in a glass mix 1/4 cup water with a pinch of salt and heat to body temperature.
add 5 drops each silver and chlorophyll and mix.
using a large dropper (like one used for infant medication) drop 2 full droppersfull into one side of the nose while laying down.
Turn the head and let it drain out the other nostril. Be sure to have paper towels handy. or just use a neti pot, I like this better.
The silver kills the bacteria and there are several hundred kind that can live in the sinus cavities and anti biotics don't get rid of them all.
Do this twice a day for a week, mixing up the mixture fresh each time.
Then do it once a week for maintenance.
There is nothing in this that will hurt you, and it cured me.
I do not have to take claritin, or antibiotics anymore.

Is there a good allergy medication similar to Xyzal or Claritin that doesn't cause weight gain?
I took Claritin last summer and stopped when I realized it was causing weight gain. Recently an allergist put me on both Xyzal and 10mg of Claritin everyday and again I'm noticing the weight gain. Is there anything I can take that won't cause this weight gain. I'm sure much of it is water retention, but it's becoming uncomfortable. Thanks.

  Weight gain seems to be a common side effect of all antihistamines, partly because they tend to stimulate the appetite.

Can Claritin D cause rapid heart rate during exercise?
Can Claritin D cause rapid heart rate during exercise?
Ok, to those who say, exercise can cause rapid heart rate, this is exercise I do every other day, and don't normally have this feeling. However, I took the Claritin D late today (1 PM) and went to the gym at 6 PM and my heart was pounding like crazy during my workout. So the difference is that I normally take the Claritin much earlier in the day, like 4 hours earlier.

  Yes, it causes fall of BP, rapid heart rate, and dizziness. In extreme cases it can cause sudden death. At rest it can cause rapid heart rate.
You are antihistamine sensitive like me, so take some lemon juice, NO MORE ANTIHISTAMINES.
It can even pass from mother's milk to baby, FDA is very reluctant about its use.

Why does Claritin D work sometimes for me and other times it doesn't?
My doctor prescribed Claritin D (24 Hour) for my allergies because this year it's been the worst. I started taking it a few weeks ago. Sometimes when my allergies were bad I would drink it and it would work for a while. Then sometimes I would get a horrible allergy attack (itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing alot, headache, sore throat because of the flem I get with my runny nose) and Claritin D wouldn't work. I would be suffering and I have no clue why it doesn't give me relief every time I drink it. Is this common? Does it take a few weeks for your body to adjust to Claritin? I was also wondering if Claritin will always stop all your allergy symptoms even if your around the allergen all the time? I've been wondering if it's my air conditioner that's aggravating my allergies because I usually get these attacks home, very rare outside like when I go to school. If this was the case, wouldn't Claritin stop me from having these allergy attacks? Please help Im so confused. Thanks!
The reason I'm finally seeking answers for this problem is because I'm currently having an allergy attack, and I'm upset because I drank it less than 24 hours ago and I'm feeling terrible. I just hate allergies ;-)

  It is obvious that your Allergies are Negatively Compromising many aspects of your Quality of Life.

Suggest a simple Allergy IgE Blood Test via your Prime Dr. .....which will tell you What ..and to What Degree you are Allergic.

Depending on your Allergy Profile... Med's "may" control your allergies...

BUT.. remember Med's only mask Allergy Symptoms...

If your Allergy Profile is such .. and you are Popping Pills..... Left & Right...
suggest Under-the-Tongue ImmunoTherapy Allergy DROPs.


University-of-Iowa Researcher says
most common Allergy Med (Claritin) not most effective

Springtime will soon turn to summertime and neither are pleasant times to be outdoors for allergy sufferers in Iowa. Many people are already sneezing -- and reeling -- with watery red eyes and stuffy noses due to elevated pollen levels.

Dr. Miles Weinberger, a pediatrics professor and allergy researcher at the University of Iowa, says pollen will be a pest for the next several months. The worst of the major pollens that effect people in the Midwest is ragweed, which usually strikes between mid-August and late September. The grass pollen comes out usually in June and the first pollens are the tree pollens which are out now.

While there are numerous over-the-counter medications that can relieve allergy symptoms, Weinberger says many sufferers are taking the wrong drugs. "When you look at the major problems that people have with this, it's often the most effective medications aren't administered properly and aren't administered in a timely manner," the doctor says.

He points to the influence of broadcast and print advertising on physicians and on allergy patients. He says the leading antihistamine for many years has been Claritin which is -- in his words -- "the least effective of all of the antihistamines in common use." He says it's marketing that made Claritin such a phenomenal seller, even though it was "barely effective enough" to gain F-D-A approval.

For allergy sufferers, Weinberger suggests seeking a physician consultation.

Question about Children's claritin?
I bought some yesterday for my 2year old son so I gave it to him when we got home which was at 7pm. Now it says don't give more than directed in a 24 hour period but my question is do I have to wait till 7pm to give him another does or can i give it to him now? I prefer to give him the medicine during the day when he's most active rather at night.

The recommended dosage is one tablet (10mg) for 24hrs, so I therefore have ingested 20mg.

I didn't mean to take the second one, so please don't berate me or think I did it deliberately.

The only thing that I've read about happening if you overdose on these tablets is drowsiness, but I'm worried that other things could happen to me.

Mom's already assured me that it won't KILL me or anything, but.. I'm still really, really worried.

If it helps to know, I've been taking Claritin for a long, long time, and I've never had any side effects from taking it.

How can you tell Allergy's from colds?
My daughter woke up this morning with a runny nose and sneezing.I called the pharmacist and they said sounds like allergy's so i went out and bought her some Children's Claritin.How can i tell if it turns into a cold? I wasn't sure if a fever is with Allergy .She doesn't have a fever im keeping an eye on that.The weather has gotten a little colder the past two days so im thinking thats why.

  Generally if her snot is thin and clear it's an allergy. With colds it is usually cloudy, thick, and greeny, yellow or white which indicates infection.
