Claritin. #thedifferenceisclear


We are a family of allergy sufferers. I have horrible seasonal allergies. My husband lives through most of the year with a stuffy nose. It was no surprise when our 6 year old, Genghis, started having allergy problems around 2 years old.

Thankfully, especially for the little ones, we don’t have to suffer with our allergies. We have always been a Claritin family. Genghis has to take one a day or he ends up with the worst runny nose and watery eyes in the world.

But I feel comfortable giving it to him as it is non drowsy and doesn’t make him end up in a allergy medicine fog. Also not having any of the allergy symptoms is a huge plus.

Merck, the makers of non-drowsy CLARITIN® products, has teamed up with Dancing with the Stars host Brooke Burke-Charvet this spring to create a new short film titled “The Difference is Clear.”

The film is a crazy, over-the-top look at two versions of one busy woman’s day who is juggling work, life and family while also dealing with allergies. In the first version of her day, Brooke’s character doesn’t take her allergy medication, and her non-stop allergy symptoms cause an impossibly upside-down day, where nothing goes right and everything goes wrong. In the second version, she treats her allergies and has an impossibly outrageous day, so much so, that there is no limit to what she can achieve.

Be ready to laugh. It is funny and I have had many days of living in an allergy fog when I felt just like the woman in the video.

Do you suffer from allergies?
