Are There Any Side Effects For Claritin?

I am 81 years old. I have had skin itching problem for over twenty years. The problem is combination of Las Vegas dry weather, plus the fact I had severe shingles problem more than 20 years ago. I am using Triamcinolone 0.1% and Fuocinonide 0.05% creams all the time to curb the itching problem. At one point I asked my primary care doctor to prescribe Hydoxy zine HCL 25MG tablets to soothe my problem but this medicine causes drowsiness. Now I know Claritin has non drowsy drug. Up until now I can not find side effects about this medication. Can you please tell me whether it is absolutely safe to take it.
