LORATADINE (Generic Sub Claritin)

(1.) Has anyone ever took LORATADINE (Generic Sub Claritin)?????
(2.)Does it work good or really good?????
(3.)Does it help with a stuffy nose for allergies?????
I was going to get on ZYRTE but because of the Hyvee store here had a problem not knowing if my insurance would pay for it which I know that they would my doctor wanted me to try LORATADINE (Generic Sub Claritin) & see if that works.

Re: LORATADINE (Generic Sub Claritin)

There are a number of generics for Claritin out there. We've found some work much better for us than others, but then we have a lot of food intolerances & may be reacting to stuff other than the active ingredients. Alavert was a bust for us. Did much better w/drug store brand loratadine.

Best wishes.

Re: LORATADINE (Generic Sub Claritin)

OTC= over the counter. In other words, anyone can buy. No prescription required.
And it's like a sugar pill to some folks as sugar pills do nothing and claritin does nothing for them. You must be from outside the USA..

OTC means over-the-counter or non=prescription

What I meant by it was like taking a sugar pill, I meant it didn't work at all, it was like taking nothing. But everyone is different, for some people Claritin works great.

Re: LORATADINE (Generic Sub Claritin)

Claritin is a drug that takes several days to catch up with the histamines and knock them out. Then again, it doesn;t work for everyone. But 2 rounds is not sufficient to determine that.
