I was taking Claritin and decided to try Allegra OTC ... I had trouble sleeping and itch constantly. I also had runny nose again. It is back to Claritin for me.

I bought a box of these otc and i wasn't impressed. They work for a while for sneezing, but my eyes still itch my nose still runs. For the price they charge for 5 of them, they should be miracle pills for all your allergy symtoms. Wiill not buy them again. Extremely disapointed.

I've been taking this for about 3 years. I do not get colds, upper respiratory and sinus infections like I did in the past. I don't notice dryness of mouth or sleep problems. It works great for me.

Comment:
I have never had a problem with this drug. I sleep fine and have no grogginess or dizziness. I had quit taking it for a short while and when I caught a cold I had wheezy breath sounds and my doctor found I had a reduction in lung capacity. I had to use a bronchial steroid to correct this problem to increase my lung capacity.
