Basically, claritin, loratidine, zyrtec, allegra and xyzal (levocetirizine) are all 2nd generation antihistamines. If your symptoms are not controlled on these, you may need to be given intranasal steroids like flonase, nasonex or other treatments like singular, and also trying regular nasal saline. If still no improvement, time to see the allergist.
