Is It Ok If I Have Two Claritin Allergy Relief In One Day

I already took one about 3 hours ago for 24 hour relief of sinus allergies but I was wondering if taking another one right now wo
Not the best option: If true food allergy (antibody mediated), then second generation antihistamines (Loratadine, Zyrtec, Allegra) are of little benefit. Itching/hives from foods occur rapidly (usually within 30minutes and certainly within 2 hours) and disappear rapidly. First generation meds like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) work much more quickly. If other symptoms (breathing, dizziness, nausea), injected epi is critical. (see comment) ...Read more
Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more

Remember the MOA: As an aside, it's important to remember how these meds work. Your allergies are caused by histamine release in the body. Antihistamines block the release of histamine, not its effects. Its important therefore to take allergy medicine prior to experiencing the allergy symptoms. Antihistamines are to prevent allergy symptoms, not get rid of them once they've already shown up. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

It is safe to take 20mg of Zyrtec (cetirizine) daily? I take it in the morning but 12 hrs later I am suffering. If I don't take another one at night I dont sleep.

I generally take one zyrtec (cetirizine) daily and it helps my allergies, lately they are really bad. It is ok to take zyrtec (cetirizine) 2x day for a week to calm them?
Probably.: Shouldn't be a problem as long as its regular Zyrtec (DO NOT attempt with Zyrtec-D) and you don't have any history of severe reactions with antihistamine. Also, another strategy might be to try an intranasal steroid (Flonase, Nasonex, (mometasone) etc) with a single Zyrtec to see if that helps. Good luck! ...Read more
Is it ok to have a few drinks this evening if i had a .50mg tablet of alzalopram around nine thirty this morning?
Allergy meds: Hello. Allergy medication like zyrtec, Allegra and Claritin (loratadine) help with the symptoms of allergy. The dose for an adult is 180 mg for Allegra and 10 mg for zyrtec. If you take these meds on the same day, an increase in dryness as well as sedation will likely occur. Especially 4 Allegra and 1 zyrtec. There are other medications to help with your allergies. See your doctor. ...Read more
Hello i would like to know if ibilex500 cephalexin taking one capsule three times a day for two weeks could cure chlamydia?
Unlikely: Any of the penicillin derived drugs are considered poor treatments for this contageous disease. Since it can cause permanent sterility and pelvic inflammatory disease in females it is not something to use a marginal or poor drug. Azithromycin is a first line treatment choice.See www.cdc.gov/std/treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I accidentally took two Claritin D about one hour apart. This is the 12-hour formula. Is there a problem with this?
Unlikely: You've had a double dose of the decongestant which can keep you from sleeping well, increase your heart rate and increase your blood pressure. The double dose of Claritin is unlikely to cause you any issues in the next 12 hours. I do not think you need any immediate medical attention unless you develop any concerning symptoms. ...Read more
