Yes, it is ok : The full adult dose of Loratadine in other parts of the world is 20 mg. This amount caused a 12-14% drowsiness rate.

My body itches so bad when I do any exercise. I ran to the end of the road (not far at all) it was like a min away. By time I got home I was clawing at my skin. What can I do besides clariten to relieve it. It seems worse in the spring?
Take it 12 hrs befor: Since oral antihistamine takes from 30-60 minutes to work, you will need to take the Claritin (I prefer Zyrtec or Allegra however) at least that much in advance before your exercise.

Consult an allergist if itching not controlled with antihistamine. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
