Doctors often prescribe Aerius to patients who are suffering from nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose, itchy or watery eyes, hives and itching, an allergic cough, or an itchy palate. The drug is recommended for adults and for children over twelve years of age.
Aerius is also known as Clarinex, and is an antihistamine which helps to reduce levels of the histamine chemical that is released in your body when you come into contact with an allergen. Normally, the release of histamine leads to symptoms like sneezing, itching, and watering eyes, but by reducing the amount of histamine, Aerius helps to prevent these symptoms. This medication also contains a decongestant which helps to shrink swollen blood vessels and tissue in your nasal passage, making it easier for you to breathe.
The active ingredient in Aerius, also known as Clarinex, is desloratadin. The drug also includes the inactive ingredients carnauba wax, cornstarch, dibasic calcium phosphate dihydrate, FD&C Blue No. 2 Lake, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, lactose monohydrate, microcrystalline cellulose, polyethylene glycol, talc, titanium dioxide, and white beeswax.
Children below the age of two years should not take Aerius since it can lead to death. Anyone who has consumed an MAO inhibitor in last fourteen days should not take Aerius since it can lead to the patient’s death. Pregnant women should not take a tablet since it could be harmful for the baby in the womb, and nursing mothers should also avoid taking Aerius because the ingredients could reach the baby through breast milk.
Always take Aerius as directed by your doctor and do not take more medication than your doctor recommends. Take the drug with a glass of water and do not try to crush, break, or chew the tablets. If you miss a dose, continue on your regular medication schedule. Doctors will generally prescribe one 5mg tablet of Clarinex daily.
You should take Aerius only until your allergy symptoms are gone. Always consult your doctor before you start or stop taking the drug.
Taking Aerius can affect your thinking process and reaction time, so avoid driving a vehicle or any tasks that require you to be alert until you know how Clarinex affects you.
