Available without a prescription, Claritin-D® (loratadine and pseudoephedrine sulfate) is used for treating sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, and other nasal symptoms caused by allergies. It is a combination product that contains a decongestant and an antihistamine. This medication is approved for use in adults and children over the age of 12.
Claritin-D comes in tablet form and is available in 12-hour and 24-hour strengths. While some people need to take Claritin-D all year long, others only take it during allergy season. Most people are able to take it without any problems; however, side effects are possible and may include nervousness, insomnia, and drowsiness.
