KENILWORTH, N.J., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Schering-Plough Corporation (NYSE: SGP) today announces the introduction of new CLARITIN(R) Liqui-Gels(R), the first and only non-drowsy allergy medicine in an easy-to-swallow liquid-filled capsule. Now available over-the-counter, CLARITIN(R) Liqui-Gels(R) provide powerful liquid relief for the worst allergy symptoms without causing drowsiness.

"New CLARITIN(R) Liqui-Gels(R) is the latest advancement for the 50 million Americans who suffer from allergies," said Dr. John O'Mullane, group vice president, research and development, Schering-Plough Consumer Health Care.

CLARITIN(R) Liqui-Gels(R) are approved for adults and children ages 6 and older and can be found wherever over-the-counter products are sold.
