Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
sudden and heavy nosebleeds at any time without blowing, sneezing or irritation lasting about 20 minutes.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I am on beta-blockers for atrial tachycardia and was taking this medication as a preventative to malaria while traveling. During the time I was taking it my palpitations were constant. They immediately stopped, once off the atovaquone.
I didn't see this problem listed on the info for the medication. Anyone else experience this?
From this study (1 month ago):
I really believe we are missing the mark on my 8 year old son. He has been sick'like since he was 4 months old. He is being treated for ADHD/Aspergers/Allergies, but he is NO better. Now, he has petechiae around his eyes.
I'm at a loss. He has been cleared of Pediatric RA. Now what?
Docta12 on Mar, 25, 2014:
I find it interesting that your child has both ADHD and bleeding both which are linked to Vitamin K defeciency. I would have your child tested for Vitamin K, D, Zinc, iron, hemoglobin defects like sickle cell, and a great history and physical from a doctor who takes the time to check for other sources. These are blood tests by the way. He should also have ALCAT allergy testing for foods.

Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- Does claritin have an anticoagulant effect?
I thought I had conquered my nosebleed problems with saline nasal mist and saline nasal gel, but now I've started on Claritin (actually Walitin, Walgreen's knockoff) for an unrelated reason and the nosebleeds have started again. Is this because of the Claritin or just a coincidence?
- Has any one been getting nosebleeds from taking this medication
starting getting nosebleeds in about three weeks from starting this medication.Had a sever nosebleed today at work thy had to call EMTS just to get it stop.
