All could be

If you look at the possible side effect profile for each of the drugs you mentioned, high blood pressure is listed as a possible side effect for each one. Side effect profiles for drugs are VERY patient dependent and VERY hard to predict. Sometimes starting and stopping medications in an orderly fashion can determine if one is causing the undesired side effect. Talk with your doc.

Not being able to sleep may indicated sleep problems that can be life shortening or life threatening. The only way to know if there are serious problems is with an overnight sleep test. I encourage you to seek help.

Kinda mostly

Loratadine is a 'non-sedating antihistamine,' and diphenhydramine (/Benadryl) is a sedating antihistamine (aka: older / H1 & H2 blocker), so yes, they are close cousins in intended effects--just differ in side effects.
