DESLORATADINE/PSEUDOEPHEDRINE EXTENDED-RELEASE - ORAL
COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Clarinex-D 12 Hour, Clarinex-D 24 Hour
USES: This medication is used to relieve allergy symptoms such as watery eyes, runny/stuffy nose, itching eyes/nose, and sneezing. It contains 2 medications: desloratadine and pseudoephedrine. Desloratadine is an antihistamine and works by blocking a certain natural substance (histamine) that your body makes during an allergic reaction. Pseudoephedrine is a decongestant and works by narrowing the blood vessels in the nose to decrease swelling and congestion.
This medication is not recommended for use in children younger than 12 years of age due to the large amount of pseudoephedrine in it.
HOW TO USE: Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking this product and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor. Do not crush or chew extended-release tablets. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. Also, do not split the tablets unless they have a score line and your doctor or pharmacist tells you to do so. Swallow the whole or split tablet without crushing or chewing.
Do not increase your dose or take this medication more often than directed.
Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.
