Are 5 hour energy drinks bad for you?

Are  5 hour energy drinks bad for you?

Took 5 Claritin (loratadine) 24 hour, is this bad?

Took 5 Claritin (loratadine) 24 hour, is this bad?

Not good: Claritin, (loratadine) i believe, is either 1 or 2 per 24 hours. 5 obviously exceeds that. I don't think that you will overdose on 5 claritin (loratadine), (loratadine) but you may need to keep better track of how you are taking otc meds. Some meds can be complimentary and can be used together, such as Nasalcrom spray and claritin (loratadine). It would be good to see an allergist for treatment options if your allergies are severe. ...Read more
