Serious Reactions to Claritin Eye
Serious Side EffectsClaritin Eye is unlikely to cause serious problems. As with any medication, however, be sure to seek immediate medical attention if you develop any signs of a serious allergic reaction to Claritin Eye. Signs of such a reaction might include:
- Unexplained rash or hives
- Itching (more than the usual itching related to eye allergies)
- Unexplained swelling, especially of the mouth, lips, or throat
- Wheezing or difficulty breathing.
Of course, any eye drop can cause problems if it is contaminated, such as an eye infection, so be sure to avoid touching the tip of the dropper to any surface, including the surface of the eye or your fingers. Never use an eye drop that has become cloudy or discolored.
