Dosing With Desloratadine

Specific Information on Dosing With Desloratadine

Some considerations for people taking desloratadine include:
 
  • Desloratadine can be taken at any time during the day. However, it should be taken at the same time each day to help maintain an even level in the blood. Do not take it more often than directed.
     
  • Your dose can be taken with or without food.
     
  • For desloratadine to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. Desloratadine will not work if you stop taking it.
     
  • If you forget to take a dose of desloratadine, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your normal dosing schedule. Never double your dose of desloratadine at one time.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to desloratadine or to your desloratadine dosage, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist. Do not stop taking desloratadine without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
