 1  Allergies Anxiety, hypothesia in face,arms, legs,tinnitus, depression, confusion, amnesia type effects, fatigue, headache. Literally thought I was going to die, had ct scan of head and then saw neurologist all for what they thought were neurological symptoms, they decided it was anxiety, neurologist thought Claritin may have been cause or contributed to symptoms, never had anxiety before but this has taken a long time to go away, at time never contributed it to the Claritin as seems to happen so subtly. Looking back over the years I have taken this off and on not for the same length of time and it seems even when taken for a few days it coincided with small bouts of depression. This last time was the worst by far, this is criminal having medications like this available for general sale. M 40 2 months

I thought his fearful changes came from watching too many shows for older children but finding this website has me sure it is his medicine. His allergies are under control but my happy dancing boy has turned into a fearful crying boy that is angry, scared and hits others and himself!!!! No longer will he take this drug.

 1  allergies Pounding heart, internal jittery feeling, anxious, confused, dizzy, headache I took one 5mg grape chewable kid version thinking that I could easily double if I needed to. Went to bed. Asked hubby if the load in the washer sounded uneven, and he said the washer wasn't ON. It was my heart pounding & my body shaking! Finally got to sleep, awoke the next day & felt like I was on speed. 24 hrs after taking the dose, I was dizzy & lightheaded with a headache. And I don't get headaches, have anxiety, or any other issues except allergies, which this drug was absolutely ineffective in remedying. I foolishly thought that I was being safe taking a chewable grape tablet dose intended for kids 2 & over. I understand how a child or adult could have adverse effects and have their symptoms confused with an emotional disorder. But here's a hint - if you're having symptoms or an adverse reaction, investigate what you're ingesting! F 43 1 days

 2  Allergies Insomnia, SEVERE Panic attacks, feelings of impending doom, Fatigue, Depression, Strange & Vivid Dreams, Irritablility, Elevated Heart Rate, Strange feelings in Stomach. I began taking Claritin 2 weeks ago to try and combat allergies that I thought were creeping up on me... after 1 week I started to develop insomnia for 4 days in a row...then I began having mild to severe panic attacks and extreme feelings of impending doom, feelings that my heart rate had climbed erratically when it didn't ... just an overall bad, bad experience I'm having and I'm getting off Claritin immediately! I wouldn't risk taking this stuff... Go to your doctor and figure something out first before you buy OTC Claritin. Benedryl will probably be better, but only for taking it at bedtime. M 35 2 weeks

I tend to over do it a bit on caffeine pills because of the weird shifts I work, I'm sure the caffeine intake doesn't help at all.

 1  Allergies Took night before and woke up with a violent jerk, and two nightmares in a row after I did sleep...but the next night, 1 hour after taking the once-daily Loratadine tablet, I woke up with a violent jerk again, started to doze off but then...shivering - at first I thought I was just cold. Put on a shirt and socks, but the shaking continued all over my body. Teeth chattering, pretty much every muscle in my body spasaming nearly out of control. Grabbed a thermometer just to check if I had a fever or was cold - and a perfect 98 degrees. I didn't put 2 and 2 together until TODAY, as this has happened once before - but ONLY when taking Claritin generic. Twitching all over you body is scary as hell, and I would never take Claritin again no matter what !! M 36 30 days

 1  Allergy symptoms Within an hour of taking Claritin I was freezing and shaking uncontrollably. I was so thirsty and no amount of water quenched my thirst. My arms, legs, and neck ached and I felt like I had the flu. My heart was racing and felt like it was skipping a beat every so often. I fell asleep for awhile and then woke up sweating profusely. I had a constant feeling of needing to urinate. I felt very dizzy and after using the bathroom I was walking back to the couch and passed out. I woke up on the floor, flat on my face with blood coming out of my nose and a cut on my forehead. I felt like I was going to die! I was able to get myself to bed (I know...I should have called 911) and was feeling a bit better. The next day I still felt weak and had stomach pains, bloating, and felt dehydrated. I constantly felt like I needed to pee but couldn't. Now, 48 hours later, I feel much better but still not totally back to normal. I will not be taking Claritin again but my husband and son take it with no iss F 47 1 days

I can not poop. every time I take an allergy pill, I can never go number 2. I'm so scared and never taking this again. also when I breathe it feels like I'm chocking, and my chest is killing me like someone is on top of me.... everything aches. back, neck, ribs, chest, head, everything. I feel like I have been run over by a truck. and it all started when I started taking the pills. maybe I'm allergic? I don't know..... F 14 3 days

 2  Congestion Did not really do anything for my symptoms but oddly I lost my sense of smell. I only took one tablet. I have a very good sense of smell and after taking Claritin I could not smell the cat litter box at all even when I carried it out to dump it. I could not smell anything at all, not even the semi-toxic wood fires up the street my neighbors burn this time of year. How would I be able to complain when they start burning tires? No, really - food lost all flavor. Smell started returning about 36 hours later. First thing I could smell again was Chinese food, but nothing else - could barely even smell rubbing alcohol. Stopped taking this drug and threw it out - did not want to risk some permanent damage from a do-nothing drug. Went back to Allegra which got rid of my congestion. M 53 1 days

 3  Year round indoor & outdoor allergi None. This helped minimally. It's good for helping with sneezing and runny nose, but doesn't do much for overall congestion, post-nasal drip, coughing, etc. I stayed on it because it's dirt cheap and I didn't know what else to do. Stopped taking it and started Nasonex, which worked great short-term, but after several months I started having horrible side effects. So once again, back to wondering what the heck to do about these darn allergies. F 35 1 years

 2  Allergies Pounding heart, anxiety, dry mouth, insomnia, muscle twitches by day 6. Holy Hell, I am NEVER taking this stuff again unless it is forced down my throat. I'd rather just deal with the dizzy spells from my allergies causing sinus problems. I was in denial that the medicine was causing my anxiety because it really helped my allergies. I can hear for the first time in 3 weeks. The first day, no side effects. 2-5, dry mouth so I upped my fluids. I was drinking 8 bottles of water a day and it still didn't help. Days 6-8 = hell. An hour and a half after I took it, I was shaking, pacing my room, unable to sit still. I couldn't sleep to say the least. I was constantly waking up, shaking. Like I said, I was in denial. I took it two more days and I've had to talk myself down from panic attacks. I am not a very panicked person. I'm sure this could catch someone else off guard. My forever calm cousin took it, thinking I was nuts, and she said all it did was keep her awake. She's 30lbs heavier than me though. No more. I'm done. I know it said may cause nervousness, but this should be a sin. This isn't even the D-version! It's been 24 hours and it's a tad better. How long before this crap goes away?! (I gave it a 2 because it DID fix the problem...it just gave me more problems). F 22 8 days

 2  seasonal allergies my son is angry and defiant, antagonistic at 8! He is normally easy going, pleasant, sweet and takes things in stride. Ironically, I recall trying this medicine with him at age 3 and went online to find side effects because I remember having a total change in disposition of my son then. I should have learned the first time! It makes me so angry why we are not warned about the pros and cons by doctors more often. My son will not be taking this drug again. M 8 2 weeks

 3  seasonal hayfever Ran out of my prescription CLARINEX (which works very well for me). Pharmacy can't refill new Clarinex for about a week (insurance companies suck, don't they?), so with a coupon I bought a 10-pack of Claritin (which contains loratadine - a similar ingredient to Clarinex/desloratadine). Because I've already been taking my Clarinex for two months, I didn't notice any new onset of allergy symptoms - the Claritin seems to be keeping things at bay. What I did notice however, is that after the 2nd dose I am getting up 4x/night to urinate. I am a 51-year-old female and typically don't drink any fluids after dinner so I can hope to sleep 7-8 hours straight, but the past four nights I've awoken every 2-hours to pee. Thankfully, I am able to fall right back to sleep (another midlife problem for many - not being able to STAY asleep - try L5HTP!). Otherwise, the Claritin seems to be doing it's job for allergy relief. Will be back on Clarinex this week. Don't get too excited about everything you read on these blogs. Everyone is different and what works for some may not work for others. Take with a grain of salt all the negative side effects you read about - some people are just overly dramatic! F 51 5 days

 1  Allergies Chest pain and tightness, shortness of breath, mild dizziness, pain in shoulders and back and under arm pits, nausea, anxiety/panic attacks, random crying I took the Kirkland/Costco Claritan equivalent in conjunction with Flonase for approx 2 months and it helped with my allergies for sure. After one month I noticed a little wheezing and had a chest xray done at my annual physical that was normal After bout 1 1/2 months the side effects really kicked in and I had chest tightness, shortness of breath, unknow origin crying spells and anxiety. It scared the hell out of me and I ended up going to a cardiologist because I thought I was having a heart attack. All the tests were normal. I went to 2 cardiologists and neither of them paid much attention to me putting down using Claritin in my medicine history. On my own I decided to discontinue the medications and my symptoms for the most part have subsided within 4 days. I still feel slightly anxious today on day four after stopping the meds and a little dizzy, however I feel I will be back to baseline with a few days to a week. This website helped me realize I wasn't dying and it was a serious bad reaction to an allegedly safe drug. If you take Claritin, pay close attention to the side effects and if you feel them coming on slightly, stop taking it immediately. My wife takes the medication for approx 6 months with no issues.

 3  Seasonal Allergies Claritin works better than Zyrtec IMO. If you are prone to anxiety, it will worsen the anxiety. At least it doesn't cause severe depression like Zyrtec (Reactine in Canada). Take Quercetin for seasonal allergies from your local Health Food Store. It's a natural Mast Cell Stabilizer made from the white rind of lemons or onion peel. The allergy drug Nalcrom is the synthetic version of Quercetin. It's cheap, effective, and actually "good for you" in that it's a powerful anti-oxidant and will reduce free-radical damage (aging).   M 40 1 months

 1  allergies I was taking it occassionally and the last time stayed on it to prevent sinus episodes become major again. I didn't put two and two together until a few days ago. every time I am on it I am a terrible person. I was irrational and very hateful. I didn't even know who that woman was. After realizing everytime I become irrational and out of control with anger I was taking it each time 24 hour, non-drowsy Claritin helped my allergies greatly, but becoming a horrible person with uncontrollable anger isn't worth taking. I have never taken any medication before that has done this to me. I hated myself for who I became. Thankfully I am not taking it anymore and back to myself! F 57 21 days

 1   Underlying feeling of nervousness, volatile, easily annoyed and enraged, generally irritable, frequently irrational and sometimes – down right psychotic. This drug, as well as Zyrtec D (and their respective generic brands), are incredibly dangerous and destructive to some sensitive people’s psyche and emotions, and should carry MUCH STRONGER warnings of these risks. The problem is that they work well in addressing allergies – so a person is anxious to get that relief; however, to some of us sensitive people, they cause an underlying feeling of nervousness, make you volatile, easily annoyed and enraged, generally irritable, frequently irrational and sometimes – down right psychotic. I am so grateful that after 10 years of struggling with these periodic and totally uncontrollable emotional issues, my beautiful new boyfriend made me realize that it was the antihistamines causing all of my behavior issues. OMG – I FINALLY HAVE MY LIFE BACK!! Do some research on the Internet – the link between psychotic behavior and antihistamines is well documented. Since stopping these drugs, I am back to the calm, rational, loving and reasonable person I used to be. DO YOURSELF (and your loved ones) A COLLOSAL FAVOR - if you are taking any antihistamines – get off of them immediately. Instead, address your allergies with a saline nasal rinsing system (I do it up to 3 times a day – every day) like the SinuCleanse, readily available at Walgreens and CVS. I also use allergy drops in my eyes, when necessary. I am forever grateful to my loving partner for opening my eyes to the dangers of these drugs F 48 10 years

 1  Allergies (Seasonal) While on the medication my son seems fine. But if he goes one day without having his Claritin/FLonase its like a different child comes out. He is very emotional, rage, irritable, just not the same child. Does anyone have these symptoms on days when there child (or themselves) are not taking Claritin? I worry after being on it for so long, he has grown immune to it and his body goes into withdrawals quickly if we miss a dose. I see a lot of forums of kids showing these symptoms when taking it. He does the opposite.. Just missing one dose and he's a different child. Please let me know if you have this happen. Clinging to straws to pinpoint the problem. M 8 5 years

This is not the only type of medicine that should not be sold over the counter in Britain, I have experienced certain laxatives that have been banned in the likes of France but are still sold in Britain.

 2  my son took it for seasonal allergies while it cured my 6 year old son's allergy symptoms, it also made him very depressed (he told me a few times on different days he wanted to die and that he hated his life - once he even picked up a knife) and very very angry and nasty - lashing out at everyone. He was prior to taking the drug AND 3 days after taking the last dosage - a sweet, happy polite kid. It was like Jekyll and Hyde and I was thinking about having him see a therapist until I found this site and figured out it might be the Claritin.

 1  Allergies SEVERE anxiety, depression, generally autism like symptoms most likely stemming from action at the dopamine receptor. ruined my life and alienated friends and family Great gods. This is what's been wrong with me all my life. As a child i was allergic to pollen and cats and put on Tavist - this is where my antihistamine nightmare started. Thinking it harmless, my parents and the school system had me see psychiatrists and put me through a dehumanizing special education wringer. As an adult i started taking Claritin as soon as available, and my life only got worse from there. Picture not being able to hold down a job due to the inattention and emotional issues. Picture becoming so depressed you blow an entire inheritance given to you by your grandfather on illicit drugs, and dropping out of college. Ive only just NOW graduated with my B.S. in Molecular Bio. And all this time thinking that you were innately, genetically screwed up and unfit to live or breed. I want my life back. I want at least 1 million dollars from the PIG drug companies who dont adequately warn you that this kind of thing happens with their pills. I lost my childhood to this --- and most of my adult life. I had no idea that it could be the problem until i took a Drug Development course and learned about the strange similarity between antipsychotics and antihistamines. I didnt confirm it until i read this site and saw many others having the EXACT SAME PROBLEMS.

 2  Seasonal allergies Have taken the drug occasionally (once every couple of weeks or so) for a year. After a doctor recommended it for problems that I did not realize were allergy-related, I started taking it more frequently (2-3 times a week). I started having episodes where I would have an extreme feeling of horror or depression wash over me, usually just for a matter of seconds, but it was very frightening. This seemed to happen just about the same time every time I used Claritin. I know this drug works very well for a lot of people, but I think these types of symptoms should be mentioned more prominently because if someone does not know that Claritin could cause them, their medical treatment could get very complicated.

 4  Seasonal Allergies My son is 5 yrs old and I only give him Claritin (Walmart generic brand) during the Spring and Fall for about a month to help with his seasonal allergies. This medicine does help his allergy symptoms greatly (coughing, sneezing, runny nose) and the only side effect seems to be an increase in appetite. I had tried both Allegra and Zyrtec (children's formula) with horrible side effects beforehand. Claritin is the only one that gives him relief with the least side effects. M 5 30 days
