What is Aerius?
Aerius is used to treat symptoms such as watery eyes, sneezing, hives and a runny or blocked nose when in contact with substances such as insect bites, dust mites, pet fur or pollen. The active ingredient desloratadine is considered a non drowsy antihistamine type of medication that reduces the effect of the natural chemical histamine in the body. It is used to treat perennial allergic rhinitis as well as seasonal allergic reactions.
How is Aerius used?
Aerius should be taken orally once per day with or without food unless directed otherwise by a doctor. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage as it will depend on the condition being treated and the patientís response to the treatment. The tablets should be swallowed whole and should not be crushed, chewed or broken to prevent too much of the drug from being released at one time.
Aerius may cause unwanted side effects such as:
- Muscle pain
- Upset stomach
- Sore throat
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or encounter more severe side effects such as:
- Irregular heartbeat
- Difficulty breathing or swallowing
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.
Aerius is not always suitable for all patients. Always consult your health care provider prior to using this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, using any other medication (prescription or non-prescription), using any herbal products or supplements, or if you have any allergies or other health problems.
