Is Sudafed or Claritin better for post nasal drip?
Over-the-counter decongestants like pseudoephedrine (Sudafed) can help reduce congestion and eliminate postnasal drip. Newer, nondrowsy antihistamines like loratadine-pseudoephedrine (Claritin) can work to get rid of postnasal drip. However, these are more effective after you take them for several days.

Why is Sudafed bad for you?
Pseudoephedrine constricts blood vessels in the nose and sinuses. This shrinks swelling and drains fluids, letting you breathe easier again. Unfortunately, the drug doesn’t affect only the head — it tightens blood vessels throughout the body. One effect is a possible increase in blood pressure.
How quickly does Sudafed work?
Pseudoephedrine starts to work in 15 to 30 minutes, but you should feel a lot better after 30 to 60 minutes. How long can I take it for? Pseudoephedrine can be taken for a few days, usually up to 5 to 7 days, for the short-term relief of a stuffy or blocked nose.
Can Sudafed make congestion worse?
In addition, using nonprescription decongestant nasal sprays (Afrin, Dristan, others) for more than three or four days can cause even worse nasal congestion once the decongestant wears off (rebound rhinitis).
Is it bad to take Claritin D everyday?
Answer: Yes, it is ok to take the medication for an extended period of time. However, the “D” formulation has a decongestant (which is what the ‘D’ represents in the name) and this can raise your blood pressure. I would recommend discussing with your doctor if this will be a possible problem for you.
