Absolutely: Claritin is an antihistamine, sudafed is a decongestant. It is safe to use, short term, for nasal congestion. If you need long-term, you really should see an allergist or ENT for further treatment options.

Use them wisely: Sudafed is a brand name of pseudoephedrine, a decongestant used to decrease nasal congestion and secretions. Claritin is a brand name for loratadine, an antihistaminic. Claritin-d is one brand name for the combination of these two medications. This combination of medications helps to reduce nasal allergy symptoms. Long-term continuous use of decongestant result in some cases with loss of effect.
