When taken orally, the drug is well absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Absorption of the drug is not dependent on food intake.
The action of the drug starts 30 minutes after taking one tablet and lasts for 24 hours.
Loratadine is metabolized in the liver to form the active metabolite descarbotoxyloratadine.
The maximum concentrations of loratadine and its active metabolite in blood plasma are reached 1.3 – 2.5 hours after taking one tablet of Loragesal. Loragexal does not cause drowsiness and does not affect psychomotor functions, attention, performance, mental abilities.

Interaction studies with other drugs were conducted only with the participation of adult patients.
Administration of the drug should be stopped at least two days before performing skin allergy tests, because loratadine may affect their results.

The following most frequent adverse events were observed more frequently than in the placebo group: somnolence (1.2%), headache (0.6%), increased appetite (0.5%) and insomnia (0.1%). According to the World Health Organization (WHO), adverse reactions were classified according to their frequency of occurrence as follows: very common (≥1/10), common (≥1/100, < 1/10), infrequent (≥1/1000, < 1/100), rare (≥1/10000, < 1/1000) and very rare (< 1/10000); frequency unknown – the incidence could not be determined from available data. Within each group, the frequency of adverse reactions is presented in decreasing order of severity.
Immune system disorders are very rare:
Hypersensitivity reactions (including angioedema and anaphylactic reactions).
Nervous system disorders very rarely:
Cardiovascular system disorders very rarely:
Gastrointestinal tract disorders very rarely:
