Alavert-D Warnings and Precautions

Specific Alavert-D Warnings and Precautions

Some warnings and precautions to be aware of prior to taking Alavert-D include the following:
 
  • The pseudoephedrine component of Alavert-D may worsen many medical conditions, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, glaucoma, diabetes, an overactive thyroid, or an enlarged prostate. If you have any of these conditions, check with your healthcare provider before taking Alavert-D. Plain Alavert (which does not contain pseudoephedrine) may be a better choice for you.
     
  • If you have liver or kidney disease, your body may not handle this medication as well as it should. Check with your healthcare provider before taking this medication, as you may need a lower Alavert-D dosage.
     
  • Alavert-D can potentially interact with a few other medications (see Alavert-D Drug Interactions).
     
  • Alavert-D is considered a pregnancy Category B medication. This means that it is probably safe for use during pregnancy, although the full risks are not currently known (see Alavert and Pregnancy for information about the loratadine component and Sudafed and Pregnancy for more information about the pseudoephedrine component). Interestingly, the pseudoephedrine component of Alavert-D was given a more strict rating (Category C) than the combination product.
     
  • Alavert-D passes through breast milk. Therefore, if you are breastfeeding or plan to start, discuss this with your healthcare provider prior to taking the drug (see Alavert and Breastfeeding for information about the loratadine component and Sudafed and Breastfeeding for more information about the pseudoephedrine component).
