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. The increased symptoms in spring suggest that tree /grass pollen may be the culprit especially if you have nasal symptoms. Consult an allergist if itching not controlled with antihistamine. ...Read more

Continue with med: You have a condition known as dermatographia and you have been taken the right drug for it. It tends to go away with time. Dry skin has also been linked to dermatographia and thus it would not hurt to apply an moisturizer within minutes after bathing on a regular basis especially in the winter months. ...Read more
