Was running out of Aerius (desloratadine) so I thought I'd tried Reactine, figured any allergy pill would work. My allergies are pretty bad this year, trees. When I took Reactine early morning (my usual daily time), they sort of worked but not very well, and even staying mostly indoors, my symptoms (itchy watery tearing eyes, runny nose) would partly but significantly recur occasionally throughout the day, and by evening would be much worse. I tried Reactine 3 days in a row just in case there was some 'getting adjusted' period, but they almost seemed to work less and less each day. Compared to what I was using (Aerius), there is no comparison. Aerius works drastically better, and far longer (I only get minor symptoms returning in the middle of the night, not even enough to bother me but just enough to tell the pill is wearing off). And with Aerius, I get no symptoms at all during the day/eve, even when outside in areas with tons of trees. Basically, for me anyway, reactine works maybe 20-30%, Aerius works 100%. Hope there is someway I can get a refund. Guess different allergy meds work and don't work for different people. Just remembered that another person I know tried them last year too, and they had no effect for her.
No, I would not recommend this product
