Loratadine is a non-drowsy antihistamine used to alleviate allergy symptoms. It is effective on seasonal, indoor and outdoor allergies. The medication is safe for use in patients 2 years old and up, though patients between 2 and 5 years of age should be given smaller doses.

This medication is sold under a number of brand names, with the Claritin family of products easily being the most widely recognized. It's also possible to buy Loratadine under a number of generic names, including Lorafix and Lora-Tabs (not to be confused with lortab, a narcotic).

Stay Allergy-Free with Loratadine

Loratadine is typically taken once per day to provide lasting relief from upper respiratory allergy symptoms, including:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Watery eyes
  • Nasal congestion
  • Itching of eyes, nose, throat or roof of mouth
  • Itching from rash or hives
  • Mild headache

The medication is available in a number of formulations, including syrup, extended-release tablets, orally disintegrating tablets, chewable tablets and regular fast-acting tablets. The majority of patients prefer to buy regular, fast-acting tablets for convenience; syrups, chewable tablets and orally disintegrating tablets are typically reserved for use in young children or patients who have difficulty swallowing normal tablets.

The standard dose for patients 6 years old and up is 10 mg per day; for patients between 2 and 5 years of age, the standard daily dose is 5 mg per day. Rarely a doctor may recommend a higher daily dosage for adult patients.

Tablets may be taken with or without food or liquid, according to preference.

Many patients notice symptoms improving within 15 to 30 minutes of taking tablets, but it takes 1 to 2 hours for maximum benefits to be felt. These effects will last around 24 hours, so effects are best if tablets are taken at the same time each day.

Though often marketed as a product for hay fever or seasonal allergies, the medication will prevent upper respiratory allergy symptoms from many causes, indoor or outdoor. Allergy sufferers often buy Loratadine to manage allergies from:

  • Animal dander
  • Pollution
  • Mold
  • Pollen
  • Dust

Loratadine also alleviates itching from rashes or hives associated with contact with allergens, irritating plants such as stinging nettles, or from chronic rashes like urticaria. However, it will not prevent rashes or hives from developing or reduce their appearance.

Note that Loratadine, as well as other antihistamines, will do little to ease severe, potentially life-threatening reactions to allergens in individuals with asthma, food allergies and so forth; it should be used only in hay fever-like symptoms.

Warnings & Side Effects

Side effects from Loratadine are usually mild, including:

  • Headache
  • stomach upset
  • Drowsiness
  • Dry mouth or throat
  • Nervousness

The above side effects are only cause for concern if severe or persistent enough to become disruptive.

While considered a non-drowsy product, Loratadine does induce drowsiness in a small percentage of users; avoid performing complex or dangerous tasks until the medication's effects are known.

Patients with kidney or liver disease should typically take smaller doses of Loratadine; speak with a doctor before use.

Loratadine is unlikely to harm unborn or nursing babies, but not all effects may be known. Parents should discuss potential risks with a trusted doctor before using Loratadine.
