Chlortrimeton Warnings And Recalls
Yes, but...: ...The combination will likely make you very sleepy. If you are needing 2 medications that are essentially the same to be able to control your symptoms, you should instead talk to your doctor to try other safer alternatives. ...Read more
Effective: Chlor-trimeton is the brand name for chlorpheneramine. This is a very effective anti-allergic pill. Its one side effect is sleepiness which varies from one person to another. It is equally, maybe more effective than the prescription, branded types which only have the advantage of causing less sleepiness. ...Read more
It is an allergy med: Like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) Chlor-Trimeton (chlorpheniramine maleate) is a 1st-generation antihistamine that is effective for the treatment of allergic rhinitis and hives. It causes drowsiness less frequently than Benadryl more more than Claritin (loratadine) or zyrtec. Its effects only last for 3-5 hours. Other side-effects include dry mouth & constipation.

Much longer: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) leaves the system about twice as fast. It's half-life (time for 1/2 of it to leave the body) is 3.4 to 9.2 hours. Chlor-trimeton (chlorpheniramine)'s half-life is 20-24 hrs for adults and 10-13 hrs in children. That means Benadryl is 75% gone in 7-18h rs and chlor-trimeton's still going strong after 40-48 hrs (in adults). ...Read more

I have anaphylaxis from Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (documented by ED mds), is chlor trimeton ok to take instead?

Consider specific allergy testing because anaphylaxis is life-threatening and if it wasn't the benadryl (diphenhydramine) you need to know absolutely. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
