Date:2/12/2009

- Partnership Drives Home Importance of Being Alert and Focused on and off the Racetrack -

KENILWORTH, N.J., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Schering-Plough (NYSE: SGP), maker of the top-selling allergy medicine, CLARITIN, announces its second Sprint Cup racing season as a sponsor of NASCAR star and long-time allergy sufferer Carl Edwards. Edwards, who takes non-drowsy CLARITIN to treat his allergy symptoms, will drive the No. 99 CLARITIN Ford Fusion during the April NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Talladega Superspeedway, NASCAR's most competitive track.

"As a driver who races at speeds up to 180 miles an hour, I can't risk taking an allergy medicine that might make me drowsy," said Edwards. "I've continued my partnership with CLARITIN because it works hard to relieve my worst allergy symptoms without drowsiness, so I can think and react fast."

Last year, Edwards was runner-up in both the 2008 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series point standings. He also was the voice of the CLARITIN Clear To Drive(SM) campaign which emphasizes the importance of reading medicine labels to check for warnings about drowsiness before getting behind the wheel of a car.

"We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Carl Edwards, and we're proud of his accomplishments," said TJ Higgins, Group Vice President, Marketing, Schering-Plough Consumer HealthCare. "Carl has been instrumental in letting consumers know that CLARITIN effectively relieves both indoor and outdoor allergy symptoms without drowsiness and is safe to take when driving."
