How much time does it take Claritin (loratadine) to work?

Who knows: 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 (diphenhydramine) only at nighttime because it can make you drowsy. ...Read more

All day today I feel hot, then cold, then hot, then cold and so on. What would do this? The only thing I did different today was take Claritin (loratadine) d.

Virus vs side effect: Time will tell. Infection, side effect or menopause; but most likely would be viral infection. Chills would be an unusual side effect for Claritin (loratadine) d, but if you aren't sick, just don't take any more Claritin (loratadine) d and see if it goes away. After a few days, you could take one again and see if it recurs. That's how to figure out if it is a side effect when the symptoms are not dangerous. ...Read more
