Can I Take Benadryl And Claritin Together
Can I take Zyrtec and Claritin together? Or can I take Zyrtec and Benadryl to boost the Zyrtec? Will taking Mucinex DM along with Zyrtec help?
See your doctor: If your allergies are not controlled with one med alone, stepping up to a different med like flonase, nasonex, etc., will likely help you more than taking two antihistamines. Zyrtec and Claritin will not help much at all if you have a cold and not allergies, though Benadryl can dry up secretions somewhat. You can add mucinex if you also have a cough. Talk with your doctor about your symptoms. ...Read more
Maybe: Depending on what you are treating, i would space them out, take Claritin in the morning and Benadryl at night. Benadryl is sedating though, so be careful driving or operating machines. Not sure what you are treating though. I can see that with urticaria but for nasal allergies, i would use a nasal spray instead of a second antihistamine. Alka seltzer will only help pain because it has aspirin. ...Read more
Depends: They are both in the same family (antihistamines), but a few people have daytime symptoms so take non-sedating med (like loratadine) and its effect wears off before next day's dose, so take a sedating (/older) antihistamine (like benadryl) at bedtime for continued relief and to aid with sleep. If no heart / urinary / blood pressure issues and no other meds to conflict with, not likely a problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Overdoing It: No. Please do not do this. There is so much evidence in medicine that more is not better. One should not mix medications that are similar in nature unless instructed to do so by a doctor. One does not give a child both Benadryl and Claritin at the same time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

? Sinus problem: allergies can cause nose and sinus congestion, which in turn can cause headaches, depends also on which part of your head is it in the back or the front, headache can have several causes and you are already on multiple medications, which can be the side effect of any, you take benadryl and claritin, better take only one, but neither will control the congestion, see an allergist for better assessment ...Read more
My throat is hurting, how can i tell the difference between an infection and allergies?i take Benadryl and claritin,anything i can take to help me out
Infx vs allergy: Symptoms of allergy vs. infection can overlap and distinction can be difficult. Allergy symptoms will usually readily improve with Benedryl, Zyrtec, Claritin or nasal sprays, but will often relapse when the medication has worn off. Infections are generally associated with more fatigue, achiness, fever and colored nasal discharge of sputum from cough. ...Read more
