Loratadine and Pseudoephedrine for Allergies

Loratadine and pseudoephedrine sulfate (Claritin-D®) is a drug used for treating allergy symptoms, such as:
 
  • Itchy or watery eyes
  • Itchy nose or throat
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing.
 
Although it was once available by prescription only, it is now an over-the-counter (OTC) medication. Unlike many OTC allergy products, however, this drug usually does not cause drowsiness.
 
This product contains two different medications: an antihistamine (loratadine) and a decongestant (pseudoephedrine). Because it contains a decongestant, it is also licensed to treat nasal congestion due to the common cold.
