Our pharmacists’ bottom line

Clarinex D (Desloratadine / Pseudoephedrine) works well to relieve allergy symptoms and nasal congestion, but it's not a good choice for people with high blood pressure.

  • Combines the benefits of two medications to relieve congestion and allergy symptoms.
  • Desloratidine (the antihistamine) is useful for itchy eyes, runny nose, or constant sneezing.
  • Pseudoephedrine (the decongestant) is good for relieving congestion.
  • Doesn't make people feel sleepy like other antihistamine-containing products.
  • If you don't need both of the medications in this combination, you'd be taking extra medicine and can have extra side effects for no reason.
  • Pseudoephedrine (the decongestant) can make your heart race or make you feel anxious and restless.
  • Not for kids age 12 years or less.
  • Not a good medication for pregnant women to take.
