yes, that is something i'm questioning myself, although it also may be because i have the claritin d 12-hr., and my histamine levels might be going back up in the middle of the night. as for getting to sleep, it was never a problem!

but this pill is way too expensive to be on long-term. stupid otc's!

Can't you buy Claritin in pharmacies in the US? It's only 3-5 for a week's supply in the UK (that's about $5-9) if you buy it in a pharmacy. Or if you get it on prescription it's either entirely free or 6 ($9) for a month's supply.

I used to get clarityn from my doctor, but they recently stopped giving it - I get something else now - but I can't remember what.

My friend who's a nurse said apparantly there was some research or something that suggested that Clarityn could be dodgy in some way Although she also said that that was probably a load of bollocks and that the NHS was just trying to save money.

I still have a stockpile of clarityn and I still use it.

What I don't understand is why it's still on sale in the shops if my doctor isn't allowed to give it me anymore?

Like I say....It's all about money.

Clarityn just got moved off P (pharmacy only) to GSL (general sale - ie you can buy it anywhere) so that doesn't really imply they've found some cause for concern with it.

The only other thing it could be is that they're not using brand name Clarityn but are using generic loratadine, which is the active ingredient in Clarityn and so works precisely the same, but is vastly cheaper than Clarityn.

If they switched medications for cost reasons it wouldn't make that much sense considering that all prescription anti-histamines (Zirtek, Mizollen, Telfast, etc) are similar in cost.

NHS

Feel free to ignore me, I'm just rambling now.

I couldn't work it out either. Very odd. I just checked my prescription and the one they've moved me onto is Zirtek.

It makes no sense. I might have to see if I can dig out the letter my doctor sent me.

If it weren't for Zyrtec, my life would really, really suck.

*@#$%^&* drug companies. I won't pay their outrageously inflated prices, I take a store brand Benadryl when I get really miserable.

Allegra is my best friend, and mixed with a daily dose or two of Nasonex, Flovent, Singulair, as well as a shot every other week, I'm good to go.

My allergist is my best friend. I him!

I realized that my allergies are probably caused from my unfiltered room A/C. 3M made some pretty cheap filters to put over the vent, though, so I think I am going to buy one of these.

Medicine always makes me feel a bit groggy / yucky, but, right now, it is better than the allergy alternative.

Allegra (or Telfast as it's marketed in the UK) is my allergy treatment of choice too. No symptoms, no drowsiness -- happy Fizz.
