I've been taking Clarinex for several years now for my year-long allergies. This is the only medicine 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 had horrible allergies that were draining down his throat. I kept going to the doctor because I kept thinking he had something worse. It did turn into a massive sinus infection. Luckily she switched me to clarinex. So far it has solved all of my problems.
