Loratadine / Pseudoephedrine Side Effects
What should I watch for?
Tell your doctor or healthcare professional if your symptoms do not start to get better, if they get worse or if you have a high fever. If you have high blood pressure, check your blood pressure regularly. Ask your health care professional what your blood pressure should be, and when you should contact him or her.
Your mouth may get dry. Chewing sugarless gum or sucking hard candy, and drinking plenty of water may help. Contact your doctor if the problem does not go away or is severe.
