Claritin did nothing for me either, not really. I then switched over to Allegra and it worked much better but then my body must've got used to it. So then I switched to Zyrtec and that one is the better of all of them in my opinion. It makes me sleepy but I take it at night and I am fine the next day however, when my daughter takes Zyrtec, she is groggy the next day.
But it's one of those things, you need to go by what works with your body.
