It is believed that klaritin not penetrate the blood-brain barrier (i.e., into the brain) and does not have any influence on the central nervous system, so it does not enhance the effects of alcohol Unlike other antihistamine drugs such as diphenhydramine, Suprastinum etc. .
Claritin and its effect on the human body
Claritin Main effect by blocking nerves (peripheral H1-receptor) responsive to histamine. Due to this action of histamine does not get into the bloodstream. And as it carries out its main histamine work on the beginning and development of allergic reactions, the process is suppressed or substantially reduced. The main manifestations of allergic reactions are swelling of tissues, exudation (allocation serous content, such as a cold), and pruritus. Admission Claritin quickly and permanently suppresses the symptoms of an allergic reaction: he begins to act in thirty minutes and ends its effect through the day.
Side effects from a slight Claritin, including have some inhibitory effect on the central nervous system, which is sometimes (very often, often with an overdose) can manifest itself in weakness, drowsiness and headache. There are also minor side effects from the digestive system, which also are rare, it is nausea, abdominal pain

and abnormal liver function.
Action Claritin and alcohol on the central nervous system
Can I drink alcohol during treatment Claritin? The instructions referred to the drug that does not amplify klaritin effects of alcohol on central nervous system, as it does not penetrate the central nervous system. But this is the main action of the drug. The side effects were also eliminated a small inhibitory effect on the central nervous system, which means that this action will coincide with the direction of action of alcohol.
Obviously, such action is negligible, however, no one can answer the question in advance how it will respond to the combination of "alcohol plus Claritin" the brain of the individual. This is because in the body are all very individually, including the synthesis and secretion of various hormones and enzymes which may enhance or inhibit the effect on the body of various biologically active substances.
Effect on liver
It is known that alcohol has a direct toxic effect on the liver cells. Claritin We also present a side effect, a negative effect on the liver, which can manifest itself in violation of its functions.
This side effect is very rare and most often when Claritin overdose or if there is any disease of the liver or biliary tract. But unless people are aware of their health? Liver disease often occur long and quietly. Receiving Claritin, even if slightly impaired liver function, likely will not cause any discomfort. But the combination of Claritin and alcohol can significantly "hit" on the liver if it is already there is any infringement.
The impact of alcohol on the allergic process
Finally, we must consider how alcohol acts on the allergic process - the reason for which a person takes Claritin
Claritin - histamine receptor blocker
. The main way in which all the biologically active substances that cause an allergic reaction, coming to a place of development of allergic process is the circulatory system. Therefore, great importance is the effect of alcohol on the blood vessels.
Immediately after drinking the blood vessels dilate, which promotes blood flow and biologically active substances that cause an allergic reaction. The blood flow causes increased swelling of tissues, increased exudation and strengthening all forms of allergy.
For example, if a person suffers from allergic rhinitis and conjunctivitis, swelling of the

nose, watery eyes. All this will be accompanied by severe itching.
The negative effects alcohol has on skin allergic processes, such as atopic dermatitis and eczema - all occurrences of these diseases increases sharply. So why risk it and drink alcohol during the treatment of allergic diseases? Obviously, there is need to make a choice: to treat allergy or drinking alcohol, the combination of both good will.
Alcohol in the majority is not compatible with drugs. He actively or not combined with one or another drug, or have a negative impact on the disease process, the treatment of which is assigned to the drug.
