Equate brand Loratidine is a good product to keep around.

By 

from USA

Comments about Equate Non-Drowsy 24 Hour Allergy Relief Loratadine Tablets:

Equate brand Loratidine is a good product to keep around during allergy season. It is less costly than the name brand product, and works equally as well. My favorite aspect of using this medication is the reality that it doesn't leave me feeling sluggish, or groggy. It might take a bit longer than some medications to kick in, so I take it on a daily schedule with my other medicines. This helps ensure round the clock coverage from those dreadful sneezes and itchy eyes.

Effectiveness
Once taken, it takes this tablet a little bit of time to kick in effectively. Aside from the time factor, it works quite well and doesn't leave me feeling drowsy.

Ease of Use
The pills are tiny and very easy to swallow, and only one tablet per day is needed. It doesn't get much more simple than that!

Immediacy
It takes a little while to "kick in". This doesn't necessarily mean that I wouldn't recommend it. My doctor advised me to try taking it at the same time every day to help prevent and relieve my allergy symptoms throughout the season. By doing this, it seems that Equate's Loratidine tablets gradually build up in my system and help that way. When I take them at random intervals, I had problems with getting the immediate results I craved.

Great price, great product

By 

from Taylor, MI

Comments about Equate Non-Drowsy 24 Hour Allergy Relief Loratadine Tablets:

If you need Claritin or Zertic, this is a great alternative. The effectiveness is just as good as brand name with a budget-friendly price. Small, easy to swallow, great price for a product that works. What more can you ask.

Immediacy
These don't work instantly, but they last all day. Trading a few extra minutes at the start to be covered all day works well for me.

Loyal to this product for over 5 years now!

By 

from Lancaster, CA

Comments about Equate Non-Drowsy 24 Hour Allergy Relief Loratadine Tablets:

Years ago I was put on Claritin by my doctor for my seasonal allergies and asthma symptoms. In searching for a cheaper alternative I came across this product and have been using it ever since. My husband and daughter both use it as well and we all have great success with it.

Effectiveness
Using this product regularly eases all my allergy symptoms and does not make me drowsy like other products can. I have been loyally using this product for years in place of Claritin and have never looked back. Once you begin taking this as part of your daily allergy regimen you will be very happy with the results. I have a small house dog at home and have not had any issues with my allergies as long as I take this product.

Ease of Use
small tablet makes it easy to take this pill. My husband and daughter both have issues with pills but this is easy for them to take each day.

Immediacy
this works just as the name brand does. You do have to give it a few days to begin working and need to take it regularly. But you would have to do that with the name brand product as well.

Best non-drowsy allergy relief

By 

from Des Moines, IA

Comments about Equate Non-Drowsy 24 Hour Allergy Relief Loratadine Tablets:

Over the years, I've noticed my seasonal allergies have become increasingly worse. One of my least favorite things about allergy pills is how foggy they make me feel. However, I've found loratadine is the best trade-off in effectiveness and non-drowsiness. While other brands may work a little more effectively, I can trust that I will have a clear mind and won't be tired from taking this, which matters much more to me. Best yet, it is much less pricey than other brands, and on a budget, good relief is better than no relief.

Effectiveness
I can usually still feel some of the symptoms, but they are significantly better than without taking this.

Ease of Use
It's simple, and because you take one a day, it's very easy to remember. You don't have to worry about when you take it, because it won't make you tired.

Immediacy
I can usually start feeling better within the hour, which feels pretty immediate to me. If you get in the habit of taking it everyday during allergy season, the effects never really wear off.

Effective and cheap.

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Equate Non-Drowsy 24 Hour Allergy Relief Loratadine Tablets:

This is the Wal-Mart generic brand version of Claritin (loratidine) and works just as well as the name brand version for a lot less money. I'm definitely a fan of loratidine. It works better for me than anything I've ever tried, and I would never know the difference between this brand, another generic, or the name brand Claritin.

Effectiveness
Loratidine is the best fit for my seasonal allergy symptoms. This generic brand says non-drowsy right on the front of the box, and it's true. Many allergy medications can make you very sleepy or feeling fuzzy-headed, but I've never had a problem like that with loratidine.

Ease of Use
The pills are tiny, so they are easy to swallow. I really wish that tiny pills like that would not come in blister packs because they can be hard to get out without cutting them open, but considering how cheap this medication is, it's a small complaint.

Immediacy
This medication works very quickly for me and lasts all day.

Very good allergy relief!

By 

from Phoenix,Az

Comments about Equate Non-Drowsy 24 Hour Allergy Relief Loratadine Tablets:

I have lived in Arizona for many years now and I learned a long time ago that almost everyone in Arizona has allergies. That usually means a runny nose and a lot of sneezing. I do think that Equate Non-Drowsy 24 hour Allergy Relief Loratadine Tablets are wonderful! They work just as well as any brand name allergy products. i have been using them for a long time and I am a satisfied customer.

Effectiveness
They are very effective and it is great that they are non-drowsy, so I don't fall asleep when I take it. It really helps my sneezing and sniffling and watery eyes. I always get quick relief with these allergy tablets.

Ease of Use
They are very easy and quite convenient to use. Just take a tablet with a glass of water.

Immediacy
They do work quickly and are so amazing because they work great and I don't have to take anything else with it. i can't take decongestants,but these are fine becaue they are antihistamine which is a big help.

Pretty Effective

By 

from Utah

Comments about Equate Non-Drowsy 24 Hour Allergy Relief Loratadine Tablets:

These work well, and being the Equate brand makes them quite cost effective.

Effectiveness
These allergy tablets seem to work pretty well at reducing or removing my allergy symptoms caused by hay fever and pollen allergies. The non-drowsy aspect seems to work quite well as well. I have personally never felt any negative side effects or extra drowsiness associated directly with taking these tablets. This is a bonus over some other allergy medications that do cause drowsiness.

Ease of Use
Unless someone has a very strong aversion to taking pills and tablets, then these tablets are relatively easy to take with a glass of water. They are not too big, and they swallow pretty easily.

Immediacy
These tablets work about as quickly as any other tablets or pills of this type. My personal opinion is that liquid medicine absorbs into the body faster than tablets, so it will not be as fast as that. But it is pretty fast for what it is.

Store brand but works as well as name brand

By 

from Delaware, OH

Comments about Equate Non-Drowsy 24 Hour Allergy Relief Loratadine Tablets:

I have been using the equate version of Claritin, for a few years now. Its super cheap I get 30 days supply for 4.88. I take this medicine at night and it last the 24 hours between each pill. I take it all year around to help with both indoor and outdoor allergies. In the spring when the pollen is at this highest I sometimes need something stronger than equate version of Claritin,. But for my normal, pet, dust, seasonal allergies this is a perfect cheap way to deal with my allergies.

This medicine is non drowsy. So if I forget to take it at night its not a big deal to take right before I leave for work. I don't have any side affects with this medicine either and it doesn't dry out my sinus like other brands do.

Ease of Use
You take 1 time a day (every 24 hours)

Immediacy
Its meant to be a daily controller not a quick acting pill

Works!

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Equate Non-Drowsy 24 Hour Allergy Relief Loratadine Tablets:

I don't always use allergy medication, however, when I do I use this one. It really works for 24hours. Repeated use for a couple of days works even better. I don't feel other side-effects that come with other allergy medications.

Ease of Use
Small tablet, easy to swallow.

Immediacy
It takes a couple of hours to take effect. Works best if taken the night before, it will keep working throughout the entire morning and day.
