> Larry you mentioned Claritin causing heart problems, are you sure it is Claritin and not Claritin-D? Since they keep telling me I may have had a heart attack, which I don't believe, since my research shows that the extra iron in my system can screw up the electrical readings of my heart, but no-one listens to me. I have Hemochromatosis.But my point is, I hope it is not Claritin that is causing the problems with the heart. But now that I think about it, I don't give a shit, because this is the best I've felt in years. I am getting to the point that quality of life is better than quantity.
> djmmm.......I believe desloratadine is Clarinex, which is different than loratadin or Claritin, but correct me if I am wrong. I know people who have tried Clarinex and they say they feel like they are on speed, so they end up going back on Claritin.
> Thanks again for your input. I am going to definitely keep my eyes open for more studies on Loratadin.

You aren't wrong, but desloratadine is just the active metabolite of loratadine (Claritin)'s just clever marketing, like Sarafem for PMS, which is just fluoxetine (Prozac)...
