Desloratadine 5mg Tablets
Efficient modern medicine against allergy. Mine is provoked by usage of household chemicicals or water treatment in the swimmibng pool. Start acting couple of hours after taking it. For me it is more efficient than cloratadine or cetirizine.

Desloratadine 5mg Tablets
this product is helping me to control my allergy a lot. I didn't try fexofenadine (as per current CQC guideline). That was because I needed a GP visit which is near impossible now and I don't want to take a slot for a patients who needs it more. I was previously prescribed Desloratidine and then my GP decided to cancel the prescription. I have tried loratidine and cetirizine but they are far less effective on my symptoms.
