Loratadine (Claritin®) is a non-prescription medicine licensed for the treatment of allergy symptoms and itching caused by hives (which may or may not be caused by allergies). By blocking histamine from binding to histamine receptors in the body, the medication can help alleviate itching due to hives and relieve nasal itching, sneezing, and runny nose. Loratadine comes in several forms, including tablets, chewable tablets, liquid-filled capsules, orally disintegrating tablets, and syrup, and is generally taken once a day.
