I didn't feel tired during the whole night, but by 5:30 am a headache came on strong because of the lack of sleep. My heart fe ... Show Full Comment

    This drug absolutely addresses all of my allergy symptoms, but has a decided downside for me as well. The "D" component is really a type of "Speed".

    I have been using this drug off and on for 2 years. I feel SO much better when I take this medicine!! I have energy and focus & I can breath. It decreases my appetite & helps my clarity. Admittedly I need to drink more water when I take it as it can dry me out, but I should drink lots of water anyway. Love it!!!

Doctors couldn't figure out what was triggering the hives and I didn't realize it was the Claritin-D till one year later and still suffering with hives. When my bottle ran out, I stopped taking Claritan D and within days of the build up of the drug leavi ... Show Full Comment
