Clarinex-D Medicine

If you have allergies, you are probably familiar with Clarinex® (desloratadine), a prescription allergy and hive medication. However, sometimes a decongestant is needed in addition to allergy medication, particularly when your symptoms include nasal congestion.
 
In this case, you may be interested in Clarinex-D®, a combination medication that contains desloratadine and pseudoephedrine sulfate. Desloratadine (Clarinex) is part of a class of drugs called antihistamines, which are used to block the effects of histamine. This leads to relief of many allergy symptoms. Pseudoephedrine sulfate (Sudafed®) is a decongestant that works by decreasing the swelling in the nasal passages, which improves nasal congestion.
 
Clarinex-D is available in a 12-hour and a 24-hour strength. The 12-hour formulation is taken twice a day, and the 24-hour formulation is taken once a day. Both varieties come in the form of a tablet. Possible side effects include insomnia, dry mouth, and headache, among others.
