CLARITIN-D: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Nasal Congestion “It’s good, but I can’t sleep. Awake the entire night! I keep taking it so I can breathe but I never get any sleep. That’s one bad side effect! I’m so wide-awake that I can clean the entire house!”

For Nasal Congestion “I have post nasal drip and swelling from mucus in my throat. I’ve had surgery which was only about 50% effective. I started taking Claritin d about 3 years ago and it helped open me up but made me to jittery and made my heart race. I needed the pseudoephedrine to open me up. I discovered if I cut it in half it doesn’t effect me as bad and it still works to open me up. I have to take it by 10 am so it doesn’t effect my sleep later. No other effects from this medicine”

For Nasal Congestion “Instead of going for my good old generic Sudafed-PE, I went for Claritin-D. Strike one. I got 24 hour relief ones. Strike two. I took the first (and only) pill at noon yesterday. It’s past noon, and I had no sleep in the last 24 hours, I don’t know how I am still awake. On the bright side, it does wonders to my post nasal drip, and stuffy nose. Still not worth it.”

For Allergic Rhinitis “Worked great for my sinus and allergies. Had head and throats issues so bad so the pharmacist recommended Claritin D 24 hr…. I made the mistake of taking it at noon and it is now 6am and I’m still awake. Wired and jittery and my anxiety is ragging. I can’t stop still… not worth the lack of sleep.”

For Allergic Rhinitis “It worked for the allergies but I can not sleep. I took it early yesterday morning around 7 it is 1:15 am now. I tried melatonin and a Benadryl nothing! Never never again!”

For Nasal Congestion “I’m 18 I have a severe sore throat to the point of my tonsils becoming inflamed and to add to that my ears started to hurt! So, I took Claritin D and I understand this is a decongestant so my ears were better but my throat was more dry (that’s the side affect I found out later) and I’m up all night! was in bed from 10pm- 4am and now I have a 7 o clock flight great never again!!!”
