All of them: Some patients have a preference related to efficacy, but most patients find they are each helpful and often make decisions based on price. Zyrtec and Allegra are a bit stronger whereas Claritin (loratadine) seems to be active longer. Zyrtec might be slightly more potent with faster onset of effect and it is usually my first suggestion
