I bought ds some last night and gave it to him this am. So far it doesn't seem to have done anything for him. Should it have worked by now?

My ped says they need to take it every day for 2 weeks before you know if it is going to work. And she was right...after taking it about a week and a half, I noticed a huge change in Kyler. And now, we can skip a night, but if we skip two, watch out!!Born in Heaven 12/5/01

It usually works pretty quick for us.
What makes a bigger difference than the Claritin for us is Nasonex (prescription nose spray). But it takes a week or 2 to work. Oops - I just remembered I forgot to give it to Laura this AM before school!

Claratin worked well for ds at first but after about 2 months on it the claratin stopped working. Now he's on prescription zyrtec. The ped said that she liked it better than claratin. ds's had a cold hanging on for the past month so I don't really know how well it's working yet. His allergies are so bad that he probably needs something else in addition to the zyrtec. We'll address that at his 6 year well visit coming up.

this year my ds (who was 3 at the time) was suffering terribly with spring time allergies. claritan was our last resort before going into a Rx medication. it took about a week before he felt relief from it, but when he did it was clear sailing.
i was told that if you're already in the throws of allergies then it needs to build up somewhat (in our case a week did it) before it will be most beneficial.Dina
