Can I take 2 claritin?

See your doctor

Claritin
If your symptoms are not controlled with a normal dose, you should be evaluated for other causes and treatments. 2nd-generation antihistamines like claritin are usually very safe, and we sometimes recommend doses higher-than-normal doses for certain conditions. But these conditions are best managed with the help of your doctor--see your doctor before taking more than the recommended dose.

Claritin side effects?

Pretty rare

Neck-throat
Drowsiness & fatigue are reported by ~2% of users. Headache, abdominal pain, sore throat, diarrhea have been reported. Rare but reported side-effects include liver damage, seizures, & low platelet counts. I have been in practice for 29 years and have occasionally seen drowsiness, headache and abdominal pain associated with Claritin but none of the others so far and its a very commonly used drug.

Does claritin make u sleepy?

Usually not

Claritin
Claritin is generally considered a nonsedating antihistamine, and rarely causes drowsiness. That said, some people do appear to be more sensitive to it and will complain of drowsiness. If that occurs, there are alternatives that can be tried.

Can claritin make you tired?

Possibly

Claritin
For most people, Claritin (loratadine) does not cause fatigue or tiredness. However, for some it can cause tiredness and with higher than usual doses, the tiredness can be more common. Having allergies can cause fatigue as well.
