Loratadine, sold under the brand name claritine among others, is a medication used to treat allergies.[1] This includes allergic rhinitis (hay fever) and hives.[1] It is also available in combination with pseudoephedrine, a decongestant, known as loratadine/pseudoephedrine.[1] It is taken by mouth.[1]

Common side effects include sleepiness, dry mouth, and headache.[1] Serious side effects are rare and include allergic reactions, seizures, and liver problems.[2] Use during pregnancy appears to be safe but has not been well studied.[3] It is not recommended in children less than two years old.[2]It is in the second-generation antihistamine family of medication.[1]

Loratadine was patented in 1980 and came to market in 1988.[4] It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, the safest and most effective medicines needed in a health system.[5] Loratadine is available as a generic medication.[1] The wholesale cost in the developing worldis about US$0.01 to 0.06 per dose as of 2015.[6] In the United States, claritine is available over the counter.[1]

Cetirizine, sold under the brand name Zyrtec among others, is a second-generation antihistamine used to treat allergic rhinitis (hay fever), dermatitis, and urticaria.[5] It is taken by mouth.[6] Effects generally begin within an hour and last for about a day.[6] The degree of benefit is similar to other antihistamines such as diphenhydramine.[6]

Common side effects include sleepiness, dry mouth, headache, and abdominal pain.[6] The degree of sleepiness that occurs is generally less than with first generation antihistamines.[5] Serious side effects may include aggression and angioedema.[5] Use in pregnancy appears safe, but use during breastfeeding is not recommended.[7] The medication works by blocking histamine H1 receptors, mostly outside the brain.[6]

It was patented in 1981 and came into medical use in 1987.[8] It is available as a generic medication.[5] A month’s supply in the United Kingdom costs the NHS about £0.70 as of 2019.[5] In the United States the wholesale cost of this amount is about US$2.50.[9] In 2016 it was the 74th most prescribed medication in the United States, with more than 10 million prescriptions
