A 16-year-old female asked:

They say aerius is non-drowsy but it does make me drowsy in an hour while zyrtec (cetirizine) has no adverse effect on me. is this even normal?

Normal for you.: Everyone is a little different. While desloratadine does not make most people drowsy it seems to have that effect on you. This may be normal.
