Some people should not take CLARITIN-D 24 HOUR or CLARITIN-D 12 HOUR. If you have a history of difficulty in swallowing tablets or any medical problems associated with swallowing abnormalities, you should not take CLARITIN-D 24 HOUR. Due to pseudoephedrine (the decongestant in CLARITIN-D 24 HOUR and CLARITIN-D 12 HOUR tablets and many over-the-counter allergy medications), you should not take CLARITIN-D? 24 HOUR or CLARITIN-D 12 HOUR if you have glaucoma (abnormally high pressure in your eyes), difficulty urinating, severe high blood pressure, severe heart disease, or are taking MAO inhibitors (certain prescription medications that treat depression).
Some people need to be especially careful using CLARITIN-D 24 HOUR or CLARITIN-D 12 HOUR. Always take CLARITIN-D 24 HOUR with a full glass of water. Also, the tablets must not be chewed or broken. Check with your healthcare provider before taking CLARITIN-D? 24 HOUR or CLARITIN-D 12 HOUR if you have high blood pressure; diabetes; heart disease; increased intraocular pressure (eye pressure); thyroid, liver, or kidney problems; enlarged prostate; or if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or nursing a baby. You shouldn't take CLARITIN-D 24 HOUR or CLARITIN-D 12 HOUR with any other antihistamines and decongestants, as too much pseudoephedrine sulfate can cause nervousness, sleeplessness, dizziness, and other related side effects.
