Can I Take Claritin With Mucinex
Can I take Claritin and Mucinex together while pregnant? Hello, I am 5 months pregnant and I took Claritin and Mucinex together. I took Claritin at 9:00pm and Mucinex at 12:30am. I really need to know if I hurt my baby? I am scared and don't know if I h
I can understand your fear, however the best thing for you and your baby is for you to relax and move on from here. The likelihood that any damage was done to your baby is very slim. Claritin is considered a pregnancy category b drug; this means that animal studies have not shown any risk to a fetus, therefore doctors consider drugs in this category to be considered safe and prescribe them all the time. Mucinex (guaifenesin) is considered a class c drug which means that animal studies have shown adverse effect on the fetus, however these are usually an issue when a large amount of the drug is used or the drug is used over an extended period of time. Regardless, many doctors prescribe drugs in this category because the benefits from use outweigh any potential risk to the fetus. Also keep in mind that these studies are usually in fetus that are very early (first trimester). At 5 months all your baby's major organs are developed and should not be affected by a class c drug.
Lastly, I used category c drugs while pregnant as well as given them to my patients, and I have not seen one bad outcome from it.
Your baby will be just fine. If you ever want to know which medications you can take don't hesitate to contact your doctor.
Best of luck with your pregnancy. ...Read more

Yes: Claritin is an antihistamine medication which decreases allergy symptoms (watery itchy eyes, runny nose, itching etc). Mucinex (guaifenesin) is a mucolytic, breaks down mucus so it is not so thick and easier to drain. When taking Mucinex (guaifenesin) please drink an 8oz glass of water each time to avoid dehydration and allowing Mucinex (guaifenesin) to do its job properly. ...Read more

Yes: Claritin d combines an antihistamine (loratadine) with a decongestant (pseudo-ephedrine). Mucinex (guaifenesin) is an expectorant. These are safe to take together. Would make sure that Mucinex product is plain Mucinex and not mucinex-d (which also contains pseudo-ephedrine) before taking these together. ...Read more

Currently using albuterol sulfate inhaler and taking loratadine (both prescribed). Any interaction concerns if I take Mucinex (guaifenesin) as well?
I've taken 3 doses of mucinex (guaifenesin) sinus max severe congestion relief today I'm over due for my next dose. Can I take Claritin -D instead now?
Yes: A good idea for self-medicating cold/sinus symptoms is to list your symptoms and present the list to the pharmacist who can guide you through the litany of options. If self-medication fails to improve symptoms or they worsen, best to consult a physician. That said, if you are otherwise healthy (and have no serious heart or blood pressure related condition) can now take the claritin-D. ...Read more
My 8 yr old takes loratadine syrup everyday for allergies, but her sinuses are very congested, is it ok to give her children's Mucinex (guaifenesin) with it?
I have a sinus infection which makes my head and ears full. Usually take Claritin d 12 hour - it helps but quit and tried mucinex. Not good. Help,?
*need* 2 clear sinus 4 audition saturday, can I take regular Mucinex (guaifenesin) and Claritin w/ concerta, ortho tricyclin, and celexa? On 5 day antibiotic too.
Went to dr on mon due congestion. Diagnosis allergies due to cedar. Told to take Mucinex (guaifenesin) sinus & claritin. Yesterday afternoon lost voice & green phlegm?
Need more: You need to get a nasal steroid +/- a nasal antihistamine plus some allergy eye drops. Although green mucus does not always indicate the presence of an infection, it may be worthwhile for you to see your doctor to rule out a sinus infection. If your symptoms are that severe from cedar, you may consider an allergy work-up as well to prepare for the next season. Good luck. ...Read more
Can my 4-year-old take Claritin and mucinex (guaifenesin)? I think she has allergies and the Claritin is not helping her runny nose and she is miserable.
I've used nasal spray and have taken Claritin and mucinex (guaifenesin). is there anything I can do to taste again?
Need diagnosis: Loss of the sense of taste frequently accompanies loss of smell. The latter is due to dysfunction of the olfactory nerves. Claritin, an antihistamine, and a nasal steroid spray will not help. You have to find out why you have lost your sense of smell. Nasal endoscopy needs to be performed and if roof of nose is normal, consult a neurologist. ...Read more
I can't taste. I've used nasal spray, Claritin and mucinex (guaifenesin). Is there anything I can do to taste again?
As you already know most of taste is actually smell and lack of this can be quite a downer for your quality of life
See your dr. Or a specialist if you haven't already. It could be caused by reversible conditions like airflow obstruction due to polyps or a sinus infection. In some cases the sense organ has been damaged by recurrent infections. ...Read more
