Claritine apa isinya ya?

Kemaren sebelum menjalani operasi adenoidnya, si kecil dikasih obat namanya claritin dalam bentuk sirup. Terus beberapa minggu yang lalu aku beres-beres kotak obat dirumah dan menemukan obat juga dalam bentuk tablet yang namanya sama “claritin”. Yang tablet ini diresepkan untukku. Akhirnya aku penasaran obat itu isinya apa sih? aku sih awalnya menebak kalo claritin itu untuk anti alergi/anti histamin. karena waktu itu aku diresepkan waktu mengalami gatal-gatal dikaki dan mata merah bentol-bentol. Sedangkan anakku diresepkan waktu dia pilek.

Tadi malam aku search di internet, what is claritine? and the result is the following:
