This has been happening to me for about a week now. I have only been taking my prescriptions. I have no idea why this is suddenly happening to me.
I want to take claritin because allergies are getting to me - have a sore throat. OK to take claritin?
Experiencing possible drug interaction, however this could just be a "normal" relapse into a deeper state of depression.
