Can you take Loratadine if you have glaucoma?


suzanne66 15 Feb 2013

Loratadine is an antihistamine used to treat the symptoms of allergies, such as sneezing, watery eyes, and runny nose. It is also used to treat hives and itching in people with skin reactions.
What type of glaucoma do you have?
People with closed-angle glaucoma should avoid antihistamines or use them with caution under the supervision of a health care provider. Antihistamines may cause enlargement (dilation) of the pupil which can trigger an attack of closed-angle glaucoma. Consult with your physician before using antihistamines if you have closed-angle glaucoma.
