What is the difference...

What is the difference between allegra and clarintin

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

I have sinus allergies and with pressure in my forehead, headaches, doctor tells me its alkergies for dust mostly

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

Also nausea often episodic not daily

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am allergic to ephedrine or any cold sinus medicine so that's why I can take clarintin or allegra, not allegra d I just want to know what is the difference

Both the drugs are newer generation antihistamines and are used for allergy they are almost same as far as mechanism of action is concerned but they have different ingredients and different side effects. Allegra contains loratidine while claritin contains fexofenedine. You can contain both of them in simple form as they do not contain ephedrine in simple forms. Claritin side effects include dry mouth and sore throat at times in addition to in addition to trouble sleep, headache and nervousness caused by both of them.
