    My 7yr-old daughter was prescribed these tablets. She has slight inflamation in nose and throat, but severe in the ears. It helps that condition,but now she seems agitated, depressed and prone to lashing out. She also has a sore under her nose now. When she doesn't take it, the ears itch more (we have to use drops too for excessive ear wax and excema). I want my daughter back! I hate the mean ... Show Full Comment

    The medication was chosen because it is a 24 hour med. This is supposed to help with allergies and rhionitis. Overall, the med works for my outdoor allergies. Indoor is another story.

    I've been taking this drug now that I found out I am allergic to dogs as well as cats. It is drying to the nose, other systemic slowdown (constipation), but I am not thinking as clearly, and at 63 yrs. this is not good. Try going off this drug and see if you begin to think better.
