I got an adverse reaction to advil. Rash all over. Looks like urticaria. I took one 10 mg claritin (loratadine). Can I take another soon after? Painful itchy hives

Yes: If the hives are itchy, you may up the dose of Claritin (loratadine) to 4 x daily but this may cause some drowsiness. Allegra is another option. If the problem gets worse, you will need to see your doctor. Consult an allergist to find out whether you are "sensitive" to all NSAIDs or only to Advil. ...Read more

Can i give my 5 yr old 38 lbs, Advil and Claritin (loratadine) ? She feels warm and has a runny nose

Can i give my 5 yr old 38 lbs, Advil and Claritin (loratadine) ? She feels warm and has a runny nose

Reconsider meds: Just because she feels warm does not mean you need to give her medicine. She may not even be running a fever, but even if she is, you don't have to give medicine for that. And claritan is really meant for allergies that cause a runny nose. If she has fever and runny nose, then she likely has a cold and not allergies so i would forego the claritan. She needs fluids, rest, humidity and TLC mostly. ...Read more
