Who should take loratadine?

Loratadine is intended for anyone suffering from seasonal allergies and experiencing symptoms like itchy nose and throat, watery eyes and sneezing. Loratadine blocks histamine in the body, thereby lessening the effects of seasonal allergies. On the other hand, certain medical conditions and medications could inhibit your dose of loratadine. Medical conditions like phenylketonuria (PKU), pregnancy, asthma, nursing, allergies and kidney or liver problems may increase your chance for adverse reactions. Additionally, the medication amiodarone may interact with loratadine. If you have allergies to any of the active ingredients in loratadine, you should not take this medication.
