Yes: Should be ok at normal doses of hydrocodone (5-15 mg per dose, 3-4 times a day). At VERY high doses (more than 120 mg per day), there is a slight risk of heart arrhythmia along with things like ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) or psuedoephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) due to an additive effect.

What's the most effective non-drowsy allergy medication?

Claritin (loratadine)?Zyrtec: Most of the over the counter preparations such as Claritin (loratadine) and zyrtec are thought to be the least sedating of all antihistamines. It should be noted that all antihistamines can cause some degree of fatigue but these are the least sedating.
