Long Term Effects Of Pseudoephedrine
Is it safe to take claritin-d every day? Are there long term side effects and what does pseudoephedrine interact with, if anything?

Long-term alternative to Pseudoephedrine? It's the only drug that helps stop sensation of clear phlegm/snot stuck in nose/PND no nasal discharge :(
Depends on dosage: The bottles are usually labelled as to how long they last. 60 mg is marketed to last 4 to 6 hours, 120 mg 12 hours, and 240 mg all day.

How long does it take for pseudoephedrine (60mg/3x) to start working? Severely blocked ears due to head cold. For 4 days now, since 2nd day of cold.
Not enough: Adequate Treatment of viral common cold symptoms require not only decongestant (pseudoephedrine) but also antihistamine like benadryl (diphenhydramine) and anti-inflammatory medicine like aspirin .
