Desloratadine and Pseudoephedrine Medication

Healthcare providers often prescribe desloratadine and pseudoephedrine (Clarinex-D®) as a treatment for seasonal allergies (also known as hay fever). Because this drug contains an antihistamine and a decongestant, it blocks the effects of histamine and alleviates the nasal congestion that antihistamines are ineffective against.
 
Some of the specific symptoms that can be treated with this product include:
 
  • Sneezing
  • Itchy nose, ears, and throat
  • Itchy, burning eyes.
  •  
This medication is sold in two forms: a 12-hour tablet (taken twice a day) and a 24-hour tablet (taken once a day). To help maintain an even level of medicine in the blood, take desloratadine and pseudoephedrine at the same time(s) each day. Do not take it more often than directed. In clinical studies, the most common side effects included headache, insomnia, and dry mouth.
