Cold Home > Alavert-D Dosage

For most adults and children age 12 and older, the recommended dosage of Alavert-D is one 12-hour tablet twice daily. If you have liver or kidney disease, however, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider, as you may need a lower dose. Swallow the tablets whole; they are extended-release tablets and will release the medication too rapidly if they are broken, chewed, or crushed.

Alavert-D Dosing: An Introduction

For most people, there is just one standard recommended dose for Alavert®-D 12 Hour Allergy & Sinus (loratadine and pseudoephedrine sulfate). As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
