Is it the size of an Asprin? larger or smaller? I'm wondering if it may be a tablet from a package of oral contraceptives. Learn more oral contraceptive details here. ## it is a lot smaller than a asprin ## It's Clarinex, an allergy pill. My son was prescribed it when he was 10... that was in 07.

My health insurance to longer covers this drug where can it be purchased? ## Hi Birdie, Even if your health insurance no longer covers this medication, you should still be able to get a prescription filled at any pharmacy. However, if you're looking for a discount I would recommend asking your doctor or pharmacy about patient assistance programs or drug coupons to save money. If you run a google search for "Clarinex D 24 hour coupons" there seem to be a few good sites that offer coupons based on eligibility requirements. I hope this helps!
