The allergy drug desloratadine has been proven to reduce nasal congestion and the common symptoms of hayfever, a study has shown.

The second-generation drug that has a brand name of Clarinex reduces the symptoms of allergic rhinitis, commonly known as hayfever, which include sneezing and itchy eyes as well as nasal congestion.
