Children's Claritin® Grape Chewables Review

In my household we all suffer from allergies. Since me and my husband are both sufferers it was bound that our children would inherit this. And as it happened they both did. They have allergies so bad they often have what is called “allergy shiners” which is dark circles under the eyes.
Not to even mention that this comes along with itchy watery eyes, runny/stuffy noses, and sometimes even sore throats. Due to our allergies we often get sinusitis during the most active allergie months.
Josh (my husband) and I generally buy over the counter Claritin® for ourselves which always seems to do the trick. Unfortunately my oldest son whom suffers the worst from allergies hasn’t reacted well to allergy medications we’ve tried. They have either made him tired and groggy, or they just do not work. He is 4 years old so to be honest I am highly hesitant to try allergy medications. Add to the fact that he despises taking medicine, and that even compounds things.
Imagine my excitement to find out there was Children's Claritin® Grape Chewables! They come in grape flavor and look like little vitamins. Being a BzzAgent I got the opportunity to try a pack of these out and after clearing it with my son’s pediatrician and getting the okay I was more than excited to give this medicine a go. Especially since, it being spring, his allergies have been worse than ever before. He sneezes indoors and outdoors, and we keep a box of tissues in every room.

temporarily relieves these symptoms due to hay fever or other upper respiratory allergies:

  • runny nose
  • sneezing
  • itchy, watery eyes
  • itching of the nose or throat

Here’s some of the features Children's Claritin® Grape Chewables offers:

  • #1 Pediatrician-Recommended Non-Drowsy Brand
  • Powerful 24-hour relief that won"t cause drowsiness
  • Effective for indoor and outdoor allergies
  • Safe and effective for kids ages 2 years and older1
  • Easy to take
  • Great grape taste

I will attest that this medicine proved to be completely non-drowsy. My son took it in the mornings, and he was his usual self. This was such a relief for me. Not only is it non-drowsy, but it provides 24 hour relief so he only had to take one once a day. Kinda like a vitamin, and he loved the taste. He said it tasted great, and asked me when he could have another one. He was actually disappointed that I told him we can only take one once a day. LOL
It's so easy to take, and there is a dotted line to rip a tablet off if you need to be on the go. You just peel the paper off, and pop out the tablet. Ready to go. They are so small there's hardly anything to them. So simple, and definitely great for children ages 2 and over. It didn't work right away for us, so don't expect IMMEDIATE results, but I noticed a difference in my 4 year old after just a couple of days. His runny nose, watery eyes, and itchy throat was gone after a couple of days. His sneezing did stop the first day he took it. I was so impressed, and so thankful that it had no drowsy side effects.
