Allergic reactions to bed bugs

I carry reactine/citerizine for my own allergic reactions (which are awful).
I daily take a half dose of another second generation antihistamine, loratadine,
on caminos (excepting winter). It really helps me when I do get bitten…..as well as dealing with other environmental triggers.

I will ask my immunologist about this. Is there a benefit over the citirazine?

Ooooh. Claratin. NM. I can’t use it. Just doesn’t work for me…
Yes it works slower, initially, but with a steady level, it does seem to keep the Initial reaction to a minimum for me..with less side effects. After a bite, I go to a full dose 10mgs. for two days, then cut back down to 5mgs. Loradatine, the generic form is less expensive than Claratin.
