I don't know that Claritin is good for anxiety per se, but I feel less anxious when I feel better, so maybe you do, too.

I've never heard of it helping anxiety, but that's cool if it works for you. It's certainly safer than a benzo. It might be a good idea to ask your doctor about it though.

Visraril is used for anxiety ,it is an antihistamine. Clarion is also an antihistamine so it may have some similar anti anxiety properties.

I agree! I think you should consult a doctor ask questions. I used to take this medicine for allergies and never work for any of my anxiety attack.

I think you should ask your doctor, detour1. Are there any side effects you're feeling right now? I think that's important to consider. If it's working for you, though, that's great! Sending many hugs
