    CLARINASE, also known as Claritin D, provides 12 hours relief from allergic rhinitis (hayfever) symptoms. Each CLARINASE tablet contains 5mg of non-drowsy anti-histamine (loratadine) and 120mg of a decongestant (pseudoephedrine sulfate) for the relief of hayfever, runny nose, nasal and sinus congestion, watery, itchy eyes and sneezing. Anti-histamines help reduce allergic symptoms by preventing the effects of a substance called histamine, which is produced by the body. Decongestants produce narrowing of blood vessels leading to clearing of the stuffy or blocked nose.
