    Allergy Medication

    Is generic claritin or generic Zyrtec which one of the two is good for treating allergies?

    Any of your views?

    Neither of them does a thing for my dd, but Zyrtec made her sleepy.

    The only thing that works for her is Nasonex (prescription_ spray. She's been on the adult dose since she was about 8.

    My kids both take Zyrtec (generic version) as well as Nasonex (prescription). Of the two you mentioned, I prefer Zyrtec. Claritic makes me feel disembodied lol!

    I think generic Zyrtec is much better medicine but there are different types of Allergy and without the advice of doctor we can't use these medicines.

    My DS uses Cetirizine. It's a generic form of Zyrtec. It works well for him.
