- Indoor allergy symptoms
- Chronic hives and itching.
The medication is available by prescription only and comes in many forms and strengths. It is typically taken once a day. Although most people are able to take this allergy medicine without any problems, Clarinex does have the potential to cause side effects, such as fatigue, nausea, and a sore throat.
