Embracing a Healthy Family: Children's Claritin Review

Children's Claritin Review

Children's Claritin 2010
My children battle with allergies but two do more than the others.  When I am ready to combat the mean Georgia air, we really do turn to Claritin both adult and children's.  It's been one that I have turned to ever since it was approved as an over the counter (OTC) treatment for allergies.

Among leading OTC brands, Claritin states it's the number one pediatrician-recommended non-drowsy allergy brand.

When I read that four out of ten school children are affected by allergies, I wasn't surprised given three of my children have them.  One is on a daily medication while the other two take Claritin.  What I never really thought about is the fact that not only do allergies cause missed school days but it can affect focus resulting in learning problems.

I've always used the liquid version which my youngest's allergist recommended for her but with my older child, I give her the Claritin Grape Chewables and she actually likes it.

Some of the things we do to help alleviate suffering from allergies are to wash the blankets and sheets periodically in hot water, keep the windows closed, run the air fan all the time, change our furnace filters monthly and dust frequently.

I do like this chart from Claritin that helps parents determine if it's a cold or allergy:



If you haven't tried Claritin for your children, you might want to.  Our doctor did recommend it and it works.
