I am allergic to experience and therefore spring is a time of testing for me. In order to be fit and not to choke when the trees are blooming, I tried a huge amount of drugs. They were all good, except that their price was frightening. In search of a cheap and effective medication, I found out about Loratadine. I tried and was stunned - the effect was excellent, he had no sleeping effect on me, plus an affordable price category. I recommend this drug to everyone as an effective and inexpensive allergy medication. Maria, Petrovsk-Zabaykalsky, Russia

I didn’t even think about allergies, until somehow, on New Year’s Eve, I did not eat too much mandarins. In the morning after the tangerine "feast of the abdomen," he found a small rash on his body and rushed to the doctor. The diagnosis of Citrus Allergy shocked me. But the doctor reassured that it would pass and prescribed Loratadine. After taking the first pill it became easier, and the rash disappeared completely on the third day. At the same time, I did not record any side effects: attention did not deteriorate, drowsiness and lethargy were absent. Since then, I know that defeating allergies is easy and inexpensive. Alexey, Cherkasy, Ukraine

I myself am a doctor and know perfectly well that almost every expensive and effective medicine has cheap and equally effective counterparts. And so when I suddenly had an allergy to detergents, I used Loratadine. Literally an hour after taking the first pill, there was a noticeable relief: the itching of the skin subsided and the indomitable tears stopped. The next day I drank another pill - and the rash from the skin of my hands disappeared without a trace. So for me personally, Loratadine was the real salvation. Larisa, Moscow, Russia
