Has anyone taken Loratadine ( Claritin) and had your heart rate go up and your blood pressure go down? I have seasonal allergies and my doctor wanted me to take the Loratadine so I took one today and WHAM! Things did not go well. I have a message going to her, but thought I'd ask the "users" about what you all think.

These side effects are known. www.drugs.com/sfx/loratadine-side-effects.html

Do you have any sensitivity to artificial flavors or sweeteners? There are some listed in the "professional" section under "inactive ingredients" of the drugs.com pages on this drug. I get heart reactions to these things.

This is normally a pretty good drug, but if you are sensitive to it you need to watch for this ingredient in other name brand antihistamines.
