Non sedating antihistamine clarinex
Bender, Ph D, of National Jewish Medical and Research Center in Denver.
"The first-generation antihistamines are more sedating, but the distinction isn't as black-and-white as the marketing of the newer products may lead you to believe.
Since once-a-day Clarinex Tablets 5mg offers 24 hours of relief, you can take it in the morning and wake up the next day with your symptoms under control. Clarinex can not be used with other prescription antihistamines such as Allegra products, Allegra D products or any Zyrtec product.
Do not take any other over-the-counter antihistamine/allergy medication or prescription antihistamine when taking Clarinex.
There is no evidence that Aerius / Clarinex is addictive.
Antihistamines are a class of agents that block histamine release from histamine-1 receptors and are used to treat the symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as edema (swelling), itch, inflammation (redness), sneezing, or a runny nose or watery eyes.
Antihistamines can be further divided into those unlikely to cause drowsiness (non-sedating antihistamines) or those likely to cause drowsiness (sedating antihistamines).
Antihistamines are used in the treatment of allergic reactions, colds, hay fever, hives, and insect bites and stings.
Some antihistamines may also be helpful in reducing anxiety, inducing sleep, or at preventing or treating motion sickness.
