Claritin (Loratadine)

Claritin (Loratadine) is an antihistamine medication used to treat allergies. The drug is effective in relieving the symptoms of allergies, such as hay-fever, hives, and skin irritations. While Claritin is available over-the-counter, it can cause sedation, dry mouth, blurred vision, and other adverse effects.

Can you take Benadryl with Claritin?


There is no drug interaction between Loratadine and Diphenhydramine. Just make sure to take a regular dose of both, and remember that Benadryl can make you drowsy.
No, you do not take two antihistamines together. Overdosing on antihistamines can cause excessive sedation, which might make you confused or cause you to pass out. You might even have trouble breathing. If claritin is not working for you as an antihistamine, it's probably time to see your doctor and get a prescription antihistamine.

How long does it take Claritin to work?

Claritin is an antihistamine that take a bit longer to build up in your system as opposed to the older antihistamines like Benadryl. The plus side is there is minimal drowsiness. For a drug to reach 90% of it's steady state levels after constant usage, it takes about 3.3 half lives, so it takes about a day for Claritin (8hr half life) to get to it's maximal effectiveness. It doesn't cause drowsiness because it doesn't cross the blood-brain barrier like earlier antihistamines, such as Benadryl.

Are there interaction problems with Adderall and Claritin?

There are no KNOWN drug/drug interaction that are dangerous with Adderal and Claritin. HOWEVER; antihistamines (Claritin) may cause an INCREASE/DECREASE in the action of either drug. Consult the PRESCRIBING DOCTOR to get appropriate dosage times. More input: * If taking them both, I would take the Claritin at night since you should be taking the Adderall in the morning. If you wait 10 hours in between meds you should be fine (that is the time it takes so you do not have a concentrated effect of Adderall in your system, based on 20-30 mg).

Is it safe to mix Claritin D with Dayquil?

I believe Dayquil has the nasal decongestant phenylepherine in it (please check the ingredients!) It may even have an antihistimine in it also. You CAN NOT double-up on antihistimines or decongestants. You can always ask your pharmacist which medication would help your symptoms better and they are usually the best people to ask about these medication interactions.

Yes. As long as you are not taking any medicines which are contraindicated with either. That is just a big word meaning you are not taking any meds that you cannot take with either advil or claritin.

Can you give a dog loratadine?

Loratidine is safe to use in dogs. However, only about 1/3 of dogs will respond to anti-histamine medications. Response to one drug can be different than to others in the same class, though, so it may be worthwhile to try different antihistamines before deciding that they are ineffective in your dog. Dogs under 25 pounds, give 1/2 of a 10 mg tablet once a day; over 25 pounds try one 10 mg tablet once a day.

Can Claritin stop post nasal drip?

Antihistamines such as Allergy medications (benadryl, zyrtec, cleratine, allegra, etc) do help temporarily by shutting down the mucus production.

I've had post nasal drip for over 5 years now, it makes you cough in the mornings and sometimes gets pretty uncomfortable. I use antihistamines however I pretty much would have to use it all the time lol

so I found that sinus flush have been working for me.

You go to Amazon, or to local pharmacy (cvs, wallgreens, even walmart) and you buy either nasal irrigator or what I found works better nasal syringe.

You fill it with warm water, and slowly squeeze the water in one of your nostrils, (make sure it doesn't leak from the same nostril).

Squeeze the water slowly, you will feel as the water fills all your sinus cavities and after a couple seconds as you squeeze starts dripping from the other nostril -that's what you want because it means it reached all the sinuses and now flushes all the bacteria and mucus out.

Now there is that moment when the water goes up your nose to the sinuses, that moment sucks cuz always gives me a headache (it's the same feeling if water gets up your nose in the pool or lake), but when you get past that its ok (you can adjust your head tilt, I found that it depends on your head position).

Make sure the water comes out thru the other nostril....

As much as the allergy pills help you temporarily, you can use it as a adition to those.

I have been using it once a day or once every few days for about 5 minutes from one nostril to another, and so far don't have to take allergy pills at all, my sinus feels very clear and less dripy, no cough in the mornings either.

It didn't eliminate completely the nasal drip but reduced it so I don't notice that and no flem or the bacteria in there anymore cuz they all com out with the water....

So far it works well :)
