User Comments about Claritin-D 12 Hour
17 Sep 2011 I like these. They work very well for really bad allergy days, but if the allergies aren't that bad I would rather take the other claritin because it's less expensive and I won't get so drowsy

16 Jul 2010 The Claritin was very effective for allergies, but it made it just a little sleepy.

07 May 2010 I have had a good experience with Claritin-D 12 hour. There are some mornings that I wake up and can barely open my eyes, because they are so swollen from allergies. I can't even function on days like that with out clarintin-D. I will have a runny nose, watery eyes, puffy eyes, and will be constantly sneezing until I take a claritin-D 12 hour, and I feel 10 times better. The only downside to claritin-D is that you have to buy it from the pharmacy and it can get expensive,also I have experienced a couple times that if I take it too late in the day it has the same effect on me as if I drank a cup of coffee before bed. Overall great experience I would take claritin-D 12hrs over getting an allergy shot.

18 Mar 2009 Claritin D 12 Hour works pretty effectively and quickly. The non-drowsey effects of it are great especially for those who need to be on the go often.

25 Jan 2009 I've had sinus problems for over 30 years. Nose spray used to relieve stuffyness and no nose doctor could help with medications. Was taking perscription Alegra-D but it stopped working after a few months. Caritin-D 12 hr continues to work allowing me to get restful sleep at night.
