I've been a life long allergy sufferer. Which means I've taken every allergy medicine under the sun. Claritin has long been my go-to product for allergy relief. So I was delighted when I saw they now offer quick-dissolving tablets. The product does melt incredibly quick, which is a great plus. The packaging can be a little tricky to open, one of the only draw-backs to this product. You need to get your thumnail under a little fold of paper to get it seperated and then opened. Then you have to sort of poke the tablet out onto your tongue. But you need to be careful not to have the tip of your tongue hit the tablet while it's still in the plastic or it will dissolve before you get the whole thing out. The tablet itself has a slight mint-like flavor that is chalky, but it melts so fast you hardly care or notice. As far as how well the tablets work, ithey work just as well as the regular "swallow" kind Claritin and are much more convientant to take. This is my new favorite allergy medicine and I've already repurchased it twice now!
