Claritin provides effective relief to many of these individuals, form the symptoms of seasonal allergies including itchy, watery eyes; itchy palate; sneezing and runny nose. Claritin is also effective in relieving the symptoms of itching associated with chronic hives.
Distinct form the current over-the-counter and many prescription antihistamines, Claritin, provides relief without causing drowsiness. During clinical studies, the incidence of drowsiness was similar to that of a placebo (sugar pill) at the recommended dose. In fact, the FDA requires all antihistamines that cause drowsiness to caution users concerning the operation of a motor vehicle or heavy machinery. Claritin does not carry any such label.
Claritin is an antihistamine that works by blocking the action on histamine, when antibodies latch onto mast cells, the mast cells release histamine, a chemical that causes blood vessels in the nose to dilate and leak fluid into surrounding tissue. This results in swelling, itching and nasal discharge. By blocking the release of histamine these symptoms are decreased.
Claritin continues to be the number one prescribed antihistamine since approved by the FDA in 1994, due to the medication's overall effectiveness.
