Claritin® #thedifferenceisclear

If you are a seasonal allergy sufferer {like me}, then you are going to LOVE the new video Claritin® released starring Brooke Burke-Charvet.  It’s an “over-the-top” look at two versions of one day, with one difference, kind of like these images.

One is crisp and clear.  One, is….not.  Which is the difference that Brooke has in her day when she takes Claritin, compared to when she doesn’t.  One day is perfect {wink} and one is…not.  I have a feeling that it’ll resonant with those of us that have had a bad day due to allergies in a big way.

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.”

What kind of day would you rather have?  The difference is clear.

  1. I hope that my son doesn’t have to take any medications…my husband is a wuss and is allergic to everything so he gets shots. The regular medicaitions just don’t work.
    So I’m hoping that he didn’t pass that down to my son 🙂

    • I’m giggling b/c my husband has it bad and ashthma on top of the allergies but he doesn’t do the shots. Instead, he pops pills and stays perpetually loopy: benadryl, claritin, primatene mist, CVS brand stuff, doesn’t matter, he takes it all, and altogether. I renew my CPR certification every year. Ugh.

      It’s funny only b/c I am not a constant allergy sufferer; it’s occasional. But when it hits me, I realize just what he feels like all the time and if I had to deal with puffy/itchy eyes, nasal congestion, headaches, the cough, the sneezing which makes his chest and head hurt, I guess I’d damn near o.d. too. OK not quite, but yes, I’d be taking lots to try to alleviate some of it. He cuts the grass in a gas mask (staring blankly at you now).

  2. Rachelle says

    My children suffer from seasonal allergies. My youngest, 5, is constantly congested and has frequent nosebleeds. She’s had so many that she can usually deal with the bleed on her own. Sad 🙁

  3. I’m lucky, I’ve never had allergies! I know.

    You should come over and enter my contest! A fun scrapbooking software is up for grabs!

  4. My Dudes are year round allergy sufferers. And they have asthma. And it sucks if they don’t take Claritin.
