Claritin without an allergy diagnose?

Posted in Claritin on 2nd June 2014

Claritin without an allergy diagnose?
I have been suffering itchy and watery eyes, runny nose, and light-headedness every fall/spring for two years. Is it okay to try Claritin if my doctor hasn’t told* me I have an allergy? Also, what might I be allergic to?
Is Advil okay for clearing up symptoms?

You are definitely symptomatic of “seasonal allergies” and that is exactly what Claritin is for, as far as what you may be allergic to it could be many things with spring here and everything blooming. The only way to know for sure is to get allergy skin testing done which I don’t reccomend unless the Claritin or a trip to the Dr. does not fix.

Sounds like seasonal allergies alright. You are probably allergic to pollen and mold. It can’t hurt to try Claritin, it sure helps with my allergies.

And no Advil will not help it is a pain reliever, anti inflammatory.

Claritin is an OTC (over-the-counter) medication, so it’s safe to try: it helps me a great deal! Advil is mainly a pain/ache medication, but if it helps you, I think you should go ahead.

Claritin, if you didn’t know, is a daily drug (I know by experience). You should take it everyday even if you have no symptoms at the time. It is preventative and if you feel fine and don’t take it, chances are the symptoms will come back.

I don’t have allergies, but my husband has allergies and Claritin works well for him. My friend’s son was taking Zyrtec and it didn’t seem to help him, from what I understood.

Answer by Chicken in Black
It depends on what works for you. Some people don’t get relief from one but will the other. The advantage of Claritin is that it’s not supposed to make you sleepy but Zyrtec can.

You can get a small pack of both and see which works best for you, or ask if you can get samples from your doctor.

I take Claritin for seasonal allergies and it works great. I heard Zyrtec can cause drowsiness, my friend who takes this attests to this.
