About an hour after I take one, I get really tired and my head starts feeling like I'm doing whippets that never stop. I get overcome with drowsiness, yet it's impossible to lay still enough to actually go to sleep.
Claritin does the same thing, but to a MUCH lesser degree. I can actually function with those.
Does that happen with Zyrtec? I take mine right before I go to bed.
Yeah. It's a little worse with the Allegra, but the Zyrtec is pretty bad too. I can't sleep for at least 4-5 hours after I take one, and even then I can only get 2-3 hours before I wake up.
It does it's job really well, but the side effects pretty much ruin my day. I save them for when it gets really bad, when I'd be pretty much equally worthless with or without them.
I stick to the Claritin during the week.
