Either: It can be taken either day or night. However Claritin (loratadine) d which contains a decongestant can keep some people up at night.

Individual variance: Any medication can produce non-typical effects on some of the population that is not seen in others. Claritin (loratadine) does not seem to cross into the brain in most people, allowing for a lack of sedation for most.However, all of us have some differences in how our body reacts to some medications ant this can be one of them. For you, the medication likely reaches your brain and causes stimulation.

Antihistamine: Antihistamines can still cause drowsiness even if it says, non-drowsy, especially loratadine. Paradoxical effects of hyperactivity can be a side effect of antihistamines, though it tends to happen mostly in the very young or old. If you took a decongestant with it, then that can also cause hyperactivity.
