You may be interested at these reviews (Write a review):

  • Rash, allergic reaction to claritin d 24 hrs
    Began taking Claritin 24 hours one day ago and immediaty broke out in hives.
  • Benzonatate visual disturbance
    I was given this for a severe sinus infection along with an antibiotic so I could sleep without coughing. I realized after the third day on it that it was the reason I was having a snowy tv screen like effect in my vision, slight nausea, and a persistent headache. I originally attributed this to the antibiotic. I have a similar reaction to mucinex and bladder spasm controller medicines. I have hypothyroidism and celiac disease as well as ADHD.
