Comment from: 35-44 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: April 12

It did work but after 1 week of taking it (lowest dose, 1/eventin), after progressively feeling wierd & bit nauseous 2 hours after taking it, one night I just passed out. I went to tell my husband I didn't feel right and boom - next thing I know I'm laying on my back looking up at the ceiling. He said I was 'out" for about a minute. Went off the drug immediately. I later read in the PDR this was an 'uncommon' side effect.

I've taken this for 3 yrs,it works great! I have tried more current rx's but nothing that works as well and withoutside effects. I maybe have a dry mouth at times, that's all.

My dust mite allergy requires year-round help. Clarinex has provided a prophylaxis effect now for over 8 years w/o side effects. Optional drugs were ineffective (Zyrtec, Allegra, etc) and decongestant forms decreased alertness noticeably.

I was on Allegra for years and it wasn't working anymore. I used this in combination with my nasal spray and it works good- no side effects.

I tried every allergy med as they came on the market. Even Claritin only worked marginally. Doc moved me to Clarinex when Claritin went generic, and I have never been healthier and happier.....but the insurance companies all want to take it away! Please, will someone please tell them it really DOES work better? It is "metabolized", so it's effects are quicker and stronger, esp. if you also take meds for acid stomach.....less acid, harder to digest things....docs understand this, but pharmacies don't seem to get it!

i've been taking Clarinex for several years now for my year-long allergies. this is the only drug i have found to work for me. you have to take it for several months to notice a difference. the only side effect i've experienced from it is a terrible dry mouth. i drink lots of water and suck on alot of mints or candy.
