Palpitations: The decongestant in Claritin (loratadine) d is pseudephedrine. It is known to act like a stimulant in some people that may cause rapid heart rate and palpitations. May cause insomnia as well. Not everyone gets these side effects.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
