Can I Take Benadryl And Claritin Together
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
Can i take Claritin and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) together and drink it down with an alka-seltzer?
Maybe: Depending on what you are treating, i would space them out, take Claritin in the morning and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at night. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 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
Can I take Zyrtec and Claritin together? Or can I take Zyrtec and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to boost the Zyrtec? Will taking Mucinex DM along with Zyrtec help?

Zyrtec and Claritin will not help much at all if you have a cold and not allergies, though Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can dry up secretions somewhat. You can add Mucinex if you also have a cough. Talk with your doctor about your symptoms. ...Read more
Probably yes.: Many people report their 'daily' non-sedating antihistamine in the am does not provide relief until next am. So, if no concerns for gu/heart/bp/med-conflict issues, then they often take a 'sedating' antihistamine at night for continued symptom relief and 'bonus' of sleep aid effect. ...Read more
