  • I have been taking Claritin everyday for several years. I was on it, then we switched to Zyrtec, then back to claritin. I actually have better relif with Zyrtec BUT it makes me sleepy and insurance quit paying for it. My grandson and one son are also on Claritin. There have been no issues whatsoever. If we didn't take our allergy meds everyday we would be miserable all the time.

  • My son has been taking claritin for about 2 years now and have never had side effects. It has saved alot of trouble. Insurance doesnt pay for it so I pay for it myself.
