PLEASE WATCH OUT for the possibility that someone may switch your Clarinex for Oxycodone, which looks VERY similar, and is a very powerful narcotic.

My daughter was diagnosed with asthma. I have tried everything under the sun to prevent these coughing spells that she would have after a cold. She has been on steroids, albuteral as well as a host of other meds. This one has been effective but it dries her nose out. I only give it at bedtime, once daily and it has worked so far.I never believed she had asthma.

I've been taking Clarinex (5mg) for 8 years. I tried Allegra & Zyrtec...no luck. I'm allergic to chicken, beer yeast, and 7 molds. My symptom is itching under the skin, which result in hives.

i've been taking Clarinex for several years now for my year-long allergies. this is the only drug i have found to work for me. you have to take it for several months to notice a difference. the only side effect i've experienced from it is a terrible dry mouth. i drink lots of water and suck on alot of mints or candy.
