How long does it take childrens claritin to work?

1-2 weeks

Claritin
If there are absolutely no improvements in about a week, I tend to switch people over to Zyrtec. It can be a little sedating for some, but I have found it to be MUCH more effective than Claritin.

How long should it take for my Claritin to work?

Up to 1 hour

Allergy_testing
Claritin can work relatively quickly in most people. That is, it usually works within 30 minutes. However, in some people it may take up to 60 minutes to have its full effect. If it is not working within that time, or if the duration of effect becomes less and less, seeing an allergy specialist for allergy testing would be recommended as other treatments may be more effective.

How much time does it take Claritin to work?

Who knows

Claritin
Work for what??? Claritin supposedly starts working within 90 minutes. But claritin is also the weakest binding antihistamine sold over the counter. Personally, I feel claritin is a waste of money. Use a stronger antihistamine like fexofenadine or cetirizine which cause minimal to no sedation. Use benadryl only at nighttime because it can make you drowsy

Does it take a few times for claritin d to work?

Not necessarily

Claritin
Many patients will experience relief of symptoms with Claritin D within 1.5 hours even with one dose. However, more continued doses will establish a steady state and perhaps provide even a little better relief.
