CR on loratadine

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Private label loratadine is the "Best Buy" among Rx and OTC antihistamines, Consumer Reports magazine announces in its Best Buy Drugs list for allergy medications released Aug. 3. Branded loratadine generics Alavert and Tavist ND also top the list, which was compiled by evaluating effectiveness, safety, cost and dosing convenience. "Allergy sufferers who pay upwards of $80 a month for a brand-name prescription drug can find just as effective relief at a sixth of the cost" and save $1,400 a year or more, CR says, adding that generic loratadine is "as effective and safe" as Rx competitors Allegra (fexofenadine), Zyrtec (cetirizine) and Clarinex (desloratadine). Loratadine is favored over Rx drugs covered by copays, CR adds, noting that a $25 monthly copay "will cost you more than [OTC] loratadine in most cases"...
