Claritin and Madagascar III

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted is coming to theaters June 8!
The dynamic group,  Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, and Melman the Girafee, and Gloria the Hippo, is still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a travelling circus, which they reinvent – Madagascar-style.

Circus performers need to be at their best. Being in an allergy fog or taking an allergy medication that may make them drowsy is simply not an option. NO Drowsiness Allowed!

But for 40 million children who do suffer from allergies, symptoms can interfere with their everyday activities, including school work, and extracurricular activities – whether it be a music lesson or having fun with the family, like going to the movies or the circus.

Children’s Claritin Grape Syrup is one way to help ensure they won’t be held back by allergies so they can achieve full potential at school, on the playing field or doing any of the things they love.

I have been testing Claritin for allergies on my kiddos.  My whole family gets horrible summer allergies.  While I need prescription strength relief, I look for over-the-counter allergy medicines for my children.  I have tried Benedryl, but the side effects are too great.  Even when I give them the medicine at night, they are still groggy the whole next day.  We also tried Alavert, but it had little effect on their allergies.  We have tried Claritin in the past with a little luck.  What works best for us is the Zyrtec.  In fact, my doctor told me to take it along with the other allergy medicines that she prescribed me.  Zyrtec can be purchased in a strength appropriate for children, and I like that there are generic alternatives available.

Does Claritin work?  Yes, but I honestly think it works better for some and not at all for others.  My advice to parents is to get small amounts of each of the allergy medications available, try them for a week each, and choose the one that works best for your child.  In the meantime, enjoy a little theater time with Madagascar III.  I think it would be a treat for kids to go see when they are freed from school!

I received Claritin as a complementary product in exchange for my honest review from  The product was provided at no charge, but the review is all my own!
