Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments Today I purchased Claritin in Canada on a buy one 18 pack - get one 18 pack free. My total cost for one month was $20.00 Canadian. I carry a perscription from my doctor so my purchases are legal in USA. With no insurance, I have to purchase this way. I used to take Seldane (also over the counter in Canada), but was told by my Canadian Dr. practicing in US to take Claritin and to purchase it in Canada. If doctors can understand and advise us in this way, why can't the government controls also help us out? Claritin is certainly safer than Seldane and the Benedryl I took for 40 years. I spent much of my childhood summers drugged up. Benedryl is now OTC with the same sleepy side effects. Please consider making Claritin OTC.
