DESLORATADINE: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Urticaria: “It doesn’t work 100% but makes the itching livable and functional. I live in France and 30 tablets cost $5, so I suggest leaving the country if you need meds”

Aerius (desloratadine) for Allergic Rhinitis: “I like the medication, it does what it is supposed to do and is quick. However, it does not last 24 hours. I can only get 10 – 12 hours maximum. three others in my household are using it and they get the same results. So in the evening when the allergies come back full blown you have already taken the prescribed meds for 24 hours … what do you do?”

For Allergic Rhinitis: “I have taken this medication before, seems to help a little; have to drink plenty of water to get relief, but, joint pain, and headaches come and go, and little relief of this medication, I continue to take it for the doctor recommendation, but, I tolarate it”

For Allergic Rhinitis: “For several years I had been using a corticosteroid nasal spray to control my seasonal allergies, the spray worked great but I would wake up every morning with a very dry nose and occasional bleeding. My allergist said the spray should only be used for breakthrough allergies and that I should be taking an OTC antihistamine every day during allergy season. His recommendation was cetirizine but it made me so sleepy that I could barely function for the 24hrs it was in my system. I then tried loratadine but experienced the same thing. I moved onto desloratadine but was skeptical since it’s the activated form of loratadine that it would also make me drowsy. Surprisingly it doesn’t!”

For Allergic Rhinitis: “I used this for like 2 weeks I must say it really worked. I had watery and very itchy eyes. It worked on me immediately . But the worst thing is this drug makes me so sleepy and drowsy. And I hate that.”

For Allergic Rhinitis: “Horrible, Massive waste of money and it just doesn’t work I tried to use Sudafed spray instead which helped heaps. The only people I would recommend this medicine to is if I want them to suffer.”
