What happens if i accidentally take 2 Claritin (loratadine) d in one day?

What happens if i accidentally take 2 Claritin (loratadine) d in one day?

It depends: There are two different doses of Claritin (loratadine) d - a twelve hour dose and a twenty four hour dose. Obviously, the 12 hour dose is recommended twice a day, 12 hours apart. If you were to take two 24 hour tablets, you would be getting the equivalent of 16 sudafed tablets. That could cause agitation, insomnia, rapid heart rate, and an elevation in blood pressure. That would not be recommended. ...Read more

Can I safely take two 10 mg doses of loratadine in one day?

Can I safely take two 10 mg doses of loratadine in one day?

It may make u Drowsy: The full adult dose of Loratadine in other parts of the world is 20 mg. This amount caused a 12-14% drowsiness rate. The 10 mg dose was tested in the us in order to find a non-drowsy dose and it worked. If your allergy symptoms are controlled with Diphenhydramine (benadryl-50% drowsiness) and not 10 mg loratadine, you can try a second 10 mg dose and it may help with a lot less drowsiness. ...Read more

Can you die if you take more than five 10mg loratadine pills in one day?

Can you die if you take more than five 10mg loratadine pills in one day?

No, but why take it?: You won't die if you take 5 or 6 Loratadine tablets (50-60 mg) but this antihistamine that doesn't cause sedation at the usual dose of 10 mg may make you drowsy at this higher dose. Such a high dose of Loratadine may be helpful for difficult to control hives but offers little advantage over the usual dose for treating allergic rhinitis or allergic conjunctivitis. ...Read more

Is it more effective to take more than one Claritin (loratadine) 24 hour reditabs every 24 hours?

Possibly: If you have allergies, you should really see an allergist for a detailed treatment plan tailored to your needs. Otherwise, otc antihistamines can be tried but Claritin (loratadine) is the weakest antihistamine out there. Try something like fexofenadine or cetirizine, both are stronger though they tend to cost a little more. ...Read more

Conflicting advice from two drs on Claritin (loratadine) d otc. One says take indefinitely, other stop?

D is decongestant: Claritin-d contains two drugs, an antihistaminic named Loratadine and a decongestant adrenergic called pseudoephedrine.

What happens if you accidentally take 2 claritins (loratadine) (10mg each) in 24 hours when you're supposed to only take one ? Anything serious would happen ?

Extra Claritin (loratadine): If you are in generally good health with normal kidney and liver function, and you are not taking other sedating medications, there are not likely to be serious consequences.

How does Claritin (loratadine) work? Im wondering what would happen when I take two, how does it effect my body. And if I take one and I still feel itchy, would taking two help control my symptoms more?

Dr. Al Hegab Dr. Hegab
2 doctors agreed:

An antihistamine: Claritin, (loratadine) like all other antihistamines, blocks histamine receptors thus prevents histamine release, one major mediator, out of many, that cause allergy symptoms. If one tablet isn't controlling your symptoms, better see your doctor, you may need some other medicine ...Read more

Can one take Claritin (loratadine) the same time as taking an dayquil sinex?

OK: In general, a non-sedating antihistamine taken together with an older antihistamine isn't a problem. The bigger problem, however, is that one antihistamine is inadequate, and you feel the need to take more. When that's the case, you'll do best by getting evaluated by an allergist. ...Read more
