      but your ad said...

      that if you've had

      I usually just feel sort of high when I take a couple of Claritin at a time. It's not really a good high, though, so don't get excited. They normally don't affect me, but when taken in large quantities they sort of freak me out.

      If you want to try to improve it you can knock down a couple of Coronas or something. That always makes me feel better. Probably destroying my kidneys and liver, but oh well.

      Well, according to 'The Rules of Attraction' you just pass out and piss yourself, but wake up and have smoke.

      A little HEPA filtered air purifier ($50) in my apartment changed my life.

      That, and allegra for the bad days.

      What did you take (i.e., the active ingredient)? If it is an OTC one, you may feel drowsy, as that's a commn side effect.

      was gonna say, i can't remember off hand what the active chemical anti-histamine ingredient is - but it's the identical chemical used in light sleep aids, and allergy pills (costco bottle of 100) are waaay cheaper... so 2-3 will just make ya sleepy. if i wanna get a good early night's sleep, from time to time i'll pop a couple stanley brand allergy pills & i get to sleep faster/better.

      It's diphenhydramine. As you can see below, the amount taken as an antihistimine is also the same amount as a sleep aid.

      If you can't sleep, also try just a couple of aspirin. It may relax your muscles enough to help you sleep.

      Here's the OTC monograph listing sleep aid active ingredients for the U.S.:

      § 338.10 Nighttime sleep-aid active ingredients.
      The active ingredient of the product consists of any of the following when used within the dosage limits established for each ingredient in § 338.50(d):
      (a) Diphenhydramine hydrochloride.
      (b) Diphenhydramine citrate.

      Here's the amounts:

      (d) Directions. The labeling of the product contains the following information under the heading "Directions":
      (1) For products containing diphenhydramine hydrochloride identified in § 338.10(a). Adults and children 12 years of age and over: Oral dosage is 50 milligrams at bedtime if needed, or as directed by a doctor.
      (2) For products containing diphenhydramine citrate identified in § 338.10(b). Adults and children 12 years of age and over: Oral dosage is 76 milligrams at bedtime if needed, or as directed by a doctor.

      Here's the list of antihistamine active ingredients:

      § 341.12 Antihistamine active ingredients.
      The active ingredient of the product consists of any of the following when used within the dosage limits established for each ingredient:
      (a) Brompheniramine maleate.
      (b) Chlorcyclizine hydrochloride.
      (c) Chlorpheniramine maleate.
      (d) Dexbrompheniramine maleate.
      (e) Dexchlorpheniramine maleate.
      (f) Diphenhydramine citrate.
      (g) Diphenhydramine hydrochloride.

      (h) Doxylamine succinate.
      (i) Phenindamine tartrate.
      (j) Pheniramine maleate.
      (k) Pyrilamine maleate.
      (l) Thonzylamine hydrochloride.
      (m) Triprolidine hydrochloride.

      (emphasis added)

      And here's the amounts for diphenhydramine:

      (6) For products containing diphenhydramine citrate identified in § 341.12(f). Adults and children 12 years of age and over: oral dosage is 38 to 76 milligrams every 4 to 6 hours, not to exceed 456 milligrams in 24 hours, or as directed by a doctor. Children 6 to under 12 years of age: oral dosage is 19 to 38 milligrams every 4 to 6 hours, not to exceed 228 milligrams in 24 hours, or as directed by a doctor. Children under 6 years of age: consult a doctor.
      (7) For products containing diphenhydramine hydrochloride identified in § 341.12(g). Adults and children 12 years of age and over: oral dosage is 25 to 50 milligrams every 4 to 6 hours, not to exceed 300 milligrams in 24 hours, or as directed by a doctor. Children 6 to under 12 years of age: oral dosage is 12.5 to 25 milligrams every 4 to 6 hours, not to exceed 150 milligrams in 24 hours, or as directed by a doctor. Children under 6 years of age: consult a doctor.

      He was actually right, it's 'spelt' in the english language. If you're american your nation wrongly uses spelled.
