does it depend on your weight
Pls do not double dose. Says ten milligrams for ages six and over once a day. Does say if u r over 200 lbs u can take two.
Have you ever tryed zyrtec. Its over the counter and works better than claritin per research
If it was me I would switch to zyrtec and if that doesn't work. I would call my dr
Best of everything
I am currently getting allergy shots and have been having awful swelling reactions preventing me to move forward in my doses. The clinic told me to take 3 Claritan 1 Singular and (2) 150 mg Rantidine (Zantac) before each shot. They told me I could safely go up to 5 Claritan or Zyrtec and also mentioned Zyrtec works better for some people. I only weigh 145 lbs. so I would say you could easily take 2 Claritan or Zyrtec.
I weigh 180 and take two loratadine every night. I have a slight allergy to our pets as well as gluten. I would always get congested at night after eating bread, pasta or drinking beer. One loratadine never helped. I started taking two and I am no longer congested during sleep and don't have the allergy issues throughout the following day. Two 10mg tabs make a really big difference for me.
