BzzAgent: Children's Claritin Chewables

WOW! I was invited to participate in yet another free campaign from BzzAgent! This one is for Children's Claritin Chewables and I'm pretty excited about this one because all 3 of the kids have allergies...So it will be awesome to get to try these out for free and give my opinions on how well they work. And you guys know, here in SC, allergies are a way of life for the next month! I just got over a bad bout of it myself, so I know what it is like to be miserable feeling with watery eyes, itchy throat, and incessant sneezing! If these work, my kids will function so much better in school and on the soccer field...It never fails, being out on those fields always makes us ALL have allergy problems! And you can get a coupon if you go "Like" Claritin on Facebook. Also, this link takes you to some really cool info and hints on allergies as well as the possibility of a coupon. Here is some information on the product till I get my box in to try:

4 out of 10 school children are affected by allergies
So it's really no surprise that, every year, 2 million school days are missed due to not only seasonal allergies, but indoor allergies such as dust, mold and pet dander, as well. But what may surprise you is that the effects of allergies can be much more significant than a lost day of school:
  • Symptoms during the day can impede focus and result in learning problems
  • Symptoms at night can cause sleep loss and lead to daytime drowsiness, making it more difficult for your child to function well during the school day
Fortunately, non-drowsy anti-histamines like Children's Claritin® Grape Chewables can help provide all-day relief from runny noses, itchy, watery eyes and other allergy symptoms.

Powerful all-day relief
Children's Claritin® is the only over-the-counter children's brand that provides powerful 24 hour relief for a child's worst seasonal and indoor allergy symptoms, without making them jittery or drowsy. Your kids work hard all day — their allergy medicine should, too!

Just the Facts!
When children gain relief from allergies, they can turn their focus to school, sports, friends, games, hobbies and other "kid stuff" all day long. Here are a few other reasons why Children's Claritin® products are a great choice for all-day relief:
  • Only Children's Claritin® provides powerful 24 hour relief for a child's worst seasonal and indoor allergy symptoms without making them jittery or drowsy1
  • Indoor allergens include dust, mold and pet dander and can result in the same symptoms as seasonal allergens
  • Children's Claritin® is the #1 Pediatrician Recommended Non-Drowsy Allergy Brand — an important fact to note when choosing medicine for your children
  • 24 hour allergy relief – One dose lasts the whole day

Tips for managing kids' allergies
Even mild seasonal and indoor allergies can influence children's sleep, resulting in daytime fatigue and reduced school performance. So how can you help your kids stop focusing on allergies, and start focusing on school, and all the other things they love to do? In addition to choosing Children's Claritin®:
  • Keep windows closed — because most pollen is carried by the wind, it's in the air everywhere
  • Keep your house smoke-free — irritants like tobacco smoke can intensify allergy symptoms
  • Change or clean air filters regularly — help furnace and air conditioning filters keep out more allergens by cleaning them once a month
  • Keep your pet away from carpeted rooms, sleeping areas, upholstered furniture and other places where it becomes difficult or impossible to remove dander
  • Have your child shower and change clothes after playing outdoors — outside allergens and pollen can collect on the skin, hair and clothing
  • Inform others about your child's allergies — discuss your child's condition with the school nurse, teachers, coaches and any other people with whom your child has regular contact
Is it a cold, or allergy?
Allergy symptoms can look like a common cold. To help decide if it's an allergy or a cold, watch out for these symptoms:
