How Often Can I Take Claritin
Depends, 1 daily: If you are using Claritin for control of allergic nasal and eye symptoms, one tablet a day is all you need. If you are using Claritin for other medical condition such as chronic hives then your allergist may recommend a higher dose such as twice daily or even 3 times daily. If you are using Claritin more than once a day you should be using the medication under direct allergist supervision. ...Read more
Depends: Claritin (loratadine) 10 mg is dosed once a day. To get the best results, it should be taken before the allergy season begins and before a known allergen exposure (such as going to a home with a cat if you are cat allergic). Claritin also comes in a combination with a decongestant (pseudoephedrine), called Claritin d24 (taken once a day) and Claritin d12 (taken twice a day about 12 hours apart). ...Read more

The worst you might experience would be excessive drowsiness, sedation, etc so don't drive for 24 hours. Also do not consume alcohol or take other medications that are CNS depressants for 48 hours. ...Read more

Use Benadryl only at nighttime because it can make you drowsy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm sensitive when it comes to medication, i want to take Claritin but will it still work if i get the childrens kind?
Up to 1 hour: 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.
