Clarinase (Claritin D) 12 Hour Relief

Unfortunately this product is no longer available.

Clarinase. In the USA, Clarinase is known by the name Claritin D. Clarinase provides 12 hours of relief from the symptoms of allergies, without making you drowsy. It is particularly effective when used to treat the symptoms of hayfever, perennial allergic rhinitis, and other upper respiratory complaints. This is because Clarinase not only contains the antihistamine Loratadine but also includes the decongestant properties of Pseudoephedrine Sulphate. Antihistamine works by reducing the effect of histamine released during an allergic reaction. Histamine is part of the body�s defence mechanism and, in the case of an allergy, it is accidentally emitted in response to a benign allergen. The main consequence of this is the advent of those symptoms typically associated with allergies. These include nasal decongestion or a runny nose, itchiness, reddish irritated eyes, and sneezing. The decongestant temporarily relieves the pressure on the nasal passages by reducing swelling and sinus congestion, allowing breathing patterns to return to normal. Each Clarinase tablet incorporates 5 milligrams ( mg ) of Loratadine and 120 milligrams of Pseudoephedrine Sulphate. Clarinase 12 Hour Relief is available in packets of 10 repetabs, which are repeat action slow-release tablets.
