I have a dust allergy. The complaint has been around 1-2 months ago and comes back every night like waking up with facial conditions such as swelling, stuffy but runny nose, cough with itchy throat, heavy head. But I’ve been to the ENT doctor and was given the drug winatin loratadine 10 mg. But lately, my allergies often recur and often take the drug until it runs out, and I intend to buy it again. My question is does the drug have any bad side effects? Should I continue or is there another solution? Thank you.

Dear Salsabila Bintang,

Loratadine is an antihistamine drug that functions to treat symptoms that arise due to allergic reactions, such as sneezing, skin rashes, runny nose, stuffy nose, and watery eyes due to exposure to substances that can trigger allergies (allergens).

This drug itself is a drug whose use must be under the supervision of a doctor because the use of this drug can also cause certain side effects. The side effects that often appear with the use of loratadine are drowsiness and feeling tired. In addition, what needs to be watched out for from the use of loratadine is the emergence of interactions between drugs when this drug is taken together with other drugs.

Therefore, it is better if the complaints or allergies that you have often recur, then do a consultation or control with the doctor who treats you so that an examination and further evaluation can be carried out regarding your current condition, including the use of certain antihistamine drugs.

The suggestions that you can do yourself are avoiding exposure to allergens or things that can trigger allergies, wearing masks when driving outside, consuming healthy and nutritious food and doing regular exercise to increase endurance.

Thus the information that we can convey, hopefully this information can be useful to resolve your complaint.
