One a day allergy pills...Zyrtec, Claratine

Recommended Posts

This time of year I need to take a one a day pill for my allergies. I been taking Cetrazine (Thai knock off of Zyrtec) and been getting sleepy. I was under the belief were a non drowsy medication, which apparently is not the case. Looks like I need Claritin. Both one a day allergy pills but different drugs, Zyrtec (Cetrazine) is faster acting apparently but cause sleepiness in some. Claratin is Loratadine. Works slower but no drowsiness.

 

Has anyone found a Claritin (Loratadine) equivalent here? Would prefer a Thai version if available. I think I did see Claritin brand once here but was upwards of 600 baht

Lorsedin, Loratadine. I pay about 40 baht for a card of 10 tabs. Just ask at some pharmacies.

 

I think boots also carry their own generic brand of loratadine. About 100 baht for 10 tabs.

Is that right Sheryl? Cetrazine causes drowsiness? I been walking around in a daze in the morning. I thought it was because I quit smoking a few weeks ago. I guess the smart thing to do would be take one at night before bed
