Claritin after rhinoplasty

Hi and thanks for the question - a question that is probably best answered by your surgeon. Having said that, its probably fine, but I would confer with her/him first.

Best of luck,

Since you are in the early post operative stage, do not take any drugs without the permission of your surgeon.  He is there to monitor your progress and make sure you have a nice result.
