Oral Anti-Histamines

Allegra is the ONLY oral anti-histamine that is non-sedating even at higher doses and is the only oral anti-histamine approved for airplane pilots to take. Claritin is sedating at higher doses, but is considered less potent than Allegra and Zyrtec. Zyrtec and Xyzal may be sedating, even at normal dosages (10% report sedation). However, they have rapid onset of action within 1 hour instead of 3 hours with Allegra and Claritin. Benadryl has onset of action within 15-30 minutes with peak effects within 1-4 hours, but is sedating.
