I hauled to the drug store to get some but mistakenly got the 24 hour slow release version. I didn't realize this until I was in the parking lot getting ready to give Sarah one and realized they were the size of a horse pill. I went back inside to get the correct ones but of course, because these are controlled and have to be signed for I wasn't allowed to get the 12 hour pills. I told the pharmacist that perhaps I would just break them up and she said, "Nope! Sorry! You can't break the time released pills up because of the whozee whatzits and the blazedee blahs they are made of."
But never fear because my girl swallowed that giant pill. She totally rocks!

By the way, if you give you daughter a 24-hour Claritin D and are proud because she can swallow the whole big pill. Don't be. Because the 24-hour Claritin D has double the medicine of the 12-hour Claritin D the doctor prescribed. And when you pick her up from school she will be very drowsy and complain for several hours that she doesn't feel well.
Looks like I'm out of the running for Mother of the Year. Again.
