Unwise: Adding a stimulant on top on another may not be a good idea. You may try the otc nasal steroid first. If problem persists , see an allergist.

No.: Both drugs have common side-effects that can actually harm you such as fatigue, dizziness, insomnia, lethargy and nausea and if you're taking your finals, these symptoms maybe more distracting than nasal stuffiness. Ask your doctor for a safer alternative like Claritin or a nasal spray.
