According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, more than 50 million people in the US experience allergies each year.
Generally, 3 out of 4 oral products contain animal derived ingredients. It becomes an arduous task to find over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription pharmaceuticals and supplements that are completely animal-free.
Most over-the-counter allergy relief antihistamine products (Allegra, Claritin, Zyrtec) are not vegan friendly.
However, below is a list of popular products that VeganMed has researched to be Animal-Free.
Children's Claritin Allergy Syrup ✓ Verified Animal Free
