Alavert review





Alavert is mainly used for allergies. Usually a popular choice among doctors because of its non-drowse effect, it is marketed under NeoClarityn, Claramax, Clarinex and Alavert. Alavert is an antihistamine classified as tricyclic. Histamine is a common medical term and is actually a chemical that activates cells, which in turn trigger effects like rashes, watery eyes, sneezing and itchiness (symptoms that usually indicate an allergy). It does not cause drowsiness like other anti-histamines because it does not enter the central nervous system, more specifically the brain. It prevents the activation of the cells that cause allergies by stopping the histamine from activating that particular cell.

Alavert has side effects that are common to anti-histamines. Fatigue, dry mouth, headaches, sore throat and mouth, difficulty urinating, muscle pain, exhaustion, trouble with menstruation, difficulty sleeping, and stomach problems are among the more typical side effects. Usually these side effects are manageable and even negligible. An allergic reaction to this medication usually includes difficulty with breathing. See a doctor immediately if this occurs. A common side effect that most people don’t notice is sensitivity to sun, so be careful and take special care of your skin while out in the sunlight when you are on Alavert.

Alavert is similar to many anti-histamines so please inform your doctor if you are allergic to any anti-histamine. Chances are you might be allergic to Alavert too. Also inform your doctor if you are allergic to loratadine, more commonly known as Claritin. It is also important to inform your doctor of any medication that you are taking before you start taking new medication. Prescription and over the counter medication, nutritional supplements, herbal products and other medication should be disclosed to your doctor. Also inform your doctor if you have had a liver disease or a kidney disease or porphyria. This medication affects both those organs so if they are sensitized from a former disease your doctor should be made aware of it.

Another precaution patients should take is with pregnancy. Women who take Alavert should be aware that this medication has not been thoroughly tested yet. It would not be advisable to take the medication without telling your doctor that you are pregnant. It might cause some abnormalities with the fetus as well as cause problems with the mother. So women who are pregnant, and women who become pregnant during the course of the treatment should inform their doctors. Nursing mothers should also be aware that this medication is passed through the milk, so they should stop nursing while on the treatment or maybe their doctor can recommend another medication that will be less harmful to the baby.

Alavert is available in tablet form, and it is most popularly marketed as Clarinex. Patients are advised to follow specifically their doctors’ instructions. Keep medications in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
