    i have been taking loratadine for about 4 consecutive days and it seems very slow working,if it works at all..im not even sure if it works or if my symptoms just go away on their own by the middle of the day..i also believe i am allergic to cat hair,and in that respect,it seemed to work great.As far as runny nose is concerned,not so much relief..not to mention i have had a very sore,irritated throat for the past 4 days and come to find out,that is one of the side effects...bottom line..certainly not a quick fix in my eyes..i do like zyrtec though..it seems faster and more effective all around.
