Tavist Medication Information
Tavist® Allergy (clemastine fumarate) is an over-the counter (OTC) antihistamine approved to treat allergy and common cold symptoms, such as:
- Runny nose
- Itchy, watery eyes
- Itching of the nose or throat.
This product is usually taken every 12 hours, and it comes in the form of a tablet. Keep in mind that Tavist is not approved to treat nasal congestion. If nasal congestion is one of your cold or allergy symptoms, a nasal decongestant such as Sudafed® or Sudafed PE® may be necessary.
Because Tavist is not suitable for everyone, it's important to review the safety information for this medication before starting treatment. For example, side effects are possible and may include drowsiness, dizziness, and heartburn.
