- Safe Driving Pledge Unveiled as Part of Nationwide Awareness Campaign -

KENILWORTH, N.J., March 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- This spring allergy season, Schering-Plough (NYSE: SGP), maker of the non-drowsy allergy medicine, CLARITIN, is continuing its partnership with allergy sufferer and NASCAR driver Carl Edwards to encourage safe driving practices.

"Drowsy driving is dangerous so I'm participating in the CLARITIN Clear to Drive campaign because I want to make sure people know to check medicine labels for warnings about drowsiness before getting behind the wheel," said Edwards. "As someone who races cars for a living, I can't risk taking an allergy medicine that might make me drowsy. Now I use new CLARITIN(R) Liqui-Gels(R) because it relieves my worst allergy symptoms and it's the only non-drowsy option in an easy-to-swallow liquid-filled capsule."

For the second year in a row, Edwards is the voice of the CLARITIN Clear to Drive(SM) campaign, which aims to prevent drowsy driving and encourages people to stay alert while on the road. This year's campaign asks consumers to take an online pledge and commit to safe driving practices by visiting www.cleartodrive.com. For every pledge made, the makers of CLARITIN will donate $1 (up to $30,000) to the National Safety Council.

"As a leader in promoting safe driving practices, the National Safety Council supports the CLARITIN Clear to Drive(SM) campaign and its effort to prevent drowsy driving," said Janet Froetscher, president & chief executive of the National Safety Council. "Considering crashes are the number-one cause of accidental death in the U.S., it's important to pay close attention to our driving habits and take the necessary steps to stay alert on the road."
