What If I Take an Overdose?

An overdose with Alavert-D could cause serious problems, due to the pseudoephedrine component of the medication. The loratadine component is unlikely to cause serious problems. If you happen to overdose on this medication, seek immediate medical attention.
(Click Alavert Overdose for more information about the loratadine component and Sudafed Overdose for information about the pseudoephedrine component.)

How Should Alavert-D Be Stored?

Alavert-D should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

For people who take this medication on a regular schedule (such as for allergy treatment), if you do not take your Alavert-D as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
