Overview Information on Loratadine

Pharmacist Tip
Talk with your doctor before giving loratadine to a child younger than six years. Ask your doctor if loratadine is the best medicine to give to your child to treat hay fever or hives.     
Loratadine is a medicine that belongs to a group of medicines called antihistamines. Your doctor may have suggested that you purchase loratadine to treat symptoms of hay fever and hives. Hay fever is a term for seasonal allergies. You may have a reaction to pollen, dust, or other triggers. These substances can cause a histamine response in the body. You may have sneezing, a runny nose, or itchy, red eyes. Hives appear as red, itchy welts on the skin that are caused by histamine being released into the skin. Medicines such as loratadine block the release of histamine into your body so that you won't have the symptoms caused by histamine.
