When is caution required when taking Claritine pollen?
Taking higher doses can lead to sedation (tiredness, sleepiness). When driving a motor vehicle or using machines, the recommended dosage should not be exceeded. Claritine pollen does not increase the depressant effect of alcohol or diazepam.
If you suffer from liver dysfunction, the doctor will usually reduce the dose, i.e. you only take Claritine pollen every other day.
If you know that you suffer from a sugar intolerance, please consult your doctor before taking Claritine pollen.
Inform your doctor, pharmacist or druggist if you suffer from other illnesses, have allergies or are taking other medicines (even those you bought yourself!) or using them externally!
