The drug has been found effective in curing persons with nasal and non-nasal symptoms occurring due to seasonal allergic rhinitis. Two clinical studies in 1,248 patients have found that the drug CLARINEX-D is found to be more effective in controlling allergic symptoms than the drug psueoephedrine alone.
