Can I Take Benadryl With Claritin
Not recommended: Claritin is a slow release, non-sedating antihistamine. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a faster onset sedating antihistamine. Taking both will have additive effects and possible adverse effects such as sedation. It is not recommended that you take both of these without the guidance of your doctor. If the Claritin is not adequate for your symptoms, there are many other medications that can be prescribed to help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If no heart / urinary / blood pressure issues and no other meds to conflict with, not likely a problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Should be OK!: Good afternoon, adding one Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for symptom relief in addition to Claritin is acceptable. These drugs act through different mechanisms and should not cause any additive side effects. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a sedating antihistamine, which should come handy to fall asleep at night and have a good night's sleep and be ready for action the next day! good luck. ...Read more
