On Apr, 24, 2014: 3 males aged 15 (±5) who take Loratadine, Chlorpheniramine Maleate are studied

Loratadine, Chlorpheniramine Maleate outcomes

Information of the patient in this study:

Age: 15

Gender: male

Conditions: Flu

Drugs taking:
- Loratadine - 10MG (loratadine): used for 1 - 6 months
- Chlorpheniramine Maleate - 4MG (chlorpheniramine maleate): used for < 1 month

Drug interactions have: most severe taste loss

Comments from or about the patient: I initially took chlorpheniramine once in the afternoon and then once more at night together with the loratadine at night. (All these was during 18/11/2011)

I then took chlorpheniramine and loratadine once, both at the same time at night on 19/11 , 20/11 and 21/11. Today, without much of a blocked nose, I was unable to smell or taste at all. I was still able to taste and smell a little yesterday.
Has this destroyed my olfactory neurones or am I just suffering from a minor drug overdose effect since these antihistamines are two of the few antihistamines that were identified to be responsible for alteration of one's perception of taste and smell?
