Were you looking for information on Claritin? Claratin is a common misspelling of Claritin.
Claritin® is used to treat a range of allergy symptoms, such as runny, itchy nose; sneezing; and itchy, watery eyes. It is an antihistamine, which means it blocks the action of histamine receptors in the body, which prevents the immune system reactions that cause allergy symptoms. Claritin is now available without a prescription, and it comes in several different forms. Side effects may include headaches, drowsiness, and dry mouth.
Some people may not be able to safely take Claritin. For example, if you have liver or kidney disease or certain allergies, you should talk with your healthcare provider or pharmacist before taking this drug. In addition, the medication passes through breast milk, so if you are breastfeeding, you should ask your healthcare provider if it is okay to take Claritin.
