    Claritin D and Frequent Urination

    Hi,

    I took Claritin D (12 hour) for the first time because I was having severe sinus issues, neck pain, etc. The medicine helped my symptoms right away, but, besides keeping me up all night (which I realize is a common side effect), it has made me have to urinate constantly! It's terrible. I go and immediately have to go again. I took the medicine 20 hours ago, but I am still going to the bathroom at least every 1/2 hour (and constantly feel the urge). I called the Claritin people and they said this is not a side effect of the medicine. However, I cannot imagine how it can't be the cause because of the timing. I would greatly appreciate hearing if anyone else has had this problem. If it's not the Claritin D, I cannot imagine what it might be. I don't have any other new symptoms. I did recently take lasex a few times because my ENT thought I might be having water retention in my ear (I was having vertigo caused by BPPV) but stopped 4 days before the Claritin. The only other medicine I've recently taken has been Aleve and vitamins. Thank you so much!!

    Well, the lasix probably started you down this road. The claritin should actually have the opposite effect. It should dry you out.

    Thanks for your reply! Ironically, the lasex didn't do anything when I took it twice! I think I have a very strange body!
