Can i take loratadine if not prescribed by my doctor
Loratadine does not raise the levels of glucose in your blood. Certain formulations of loratadine, however, utilize other substances that may raise glucose levels in your blood. If you are diabetic or have an intolerance to glucose, you should use caution. Also if you have lab test loratadine can cause changes, so be sure and let your doctor, lab tech know you've taken it. There are other medications that may be better if diabetic. I suggest you talk with your doctor.
