Q: Can Lorfast be taken everyday?

A: Lorfast (Claritin) is an antihistamine that can be used for the temporary relief of runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes, watery eyes, and itching in the back of the throat due to hay fever or other upper respiratory allergies. Lorfast works by blocking histamine in the body. Histamine is the chemical in the body responsible for creating the symptoms of allergies. Lorfast may also be used to treat hives. Some of the side effects that may occur with Lorfast include headache, fatigue, and dry mouth. Lorfast is dosed once daily. Lorfast can be taken at any time of day, but should only be taken once every 24 hours. Lorfast usually does not cause drowsiness. However, if Lorfast is taken more than recommended, drowsiness can occur. People who have kidney disease should consult their health care provider before taking Lorfast to see if a dose adjustment may be needed. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should consult with a health care provider before using Lorfast. Because Lorfast is an antihistamine, and may cause lung secretions to become dry, people with breathing difficulties including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may want to check with their health care provider before taking Lorfast. There is no time limit mentioned on how long a person can take Lorfast in the medication information. Please consult with your health care provider to see if daily dosing of Lorfast is appropriate for you. For more specific information, consult with your doctor or pharmacist for guidance based on your health status and current medications, particularly before taking any action. Kristen Dore, PharmD
