Claritin comes in the form of tablets, syrup, liquid-filled capsules, and orally disintegrating tablets that are generally taken once or twice a day. Potential side effects of the medicine include fatigue, headache, and drowsiness. Compared to other non-prescription antihistamines, Claritin is much less likely to cause drowsiness.
