  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • Claritin Reditabs seem to not be adding to my mix for dealing with spring time allergies, stuffy nose, itchy throat, watery, red itchy eyes, itchy, stuffed feeling in ear on the same side of throat that is itchy. I feel a bit of a high blood pressure headache when adding Claritin Reditabs to my overall mix. I am not sure if that is the cause or the overall head stuffiness that remains.
