Can u take claritin, (loratadine) sudafed, steroid, ibuprofen, soma, tramadol, & benzonate together?

Yes: Sudafed and plain Claritin (loratadine) can be taken together. Sudafed is a decongestant, and Claritin (loratadine) is an antihistamine. Claritin (loratadine) d already contains pseudoephedrine, the ingredient in original sudafed, so Claritin (loratadine) d should never be taken with sudafed. ...Read more
Use them wisely: Sudafed is a brand name of pseudoephedrine, a decongestant used to decrease nasal congestion and secretions. Claritin is a brand name for loratadine, an antihistaminic. Claritin-d is one brand name for the combination of these two medications. This combination of medications helps to reduce nasal allergy symptoms. Long-term continuous use of decongestant result in some cases with loss of effect. ...Read more

My ears keep popping, I've tried Claritin (loratadine) and it haa not helped and cannot take Sudafed. What should I do to relieve the stufiness in my ears. ?
Follow-up needed: If you have history of environmental allergies the sinuses are usually congested also fluid could build up behind the tympanic membrane causing ears to be congested.

If no relief you need to be seen by a Physician. ...Read more
I have been taking Claritin and sudafed pe together and doing a nasal spray my nose won't stop running help?
Try something else: Neither Claritin (loratadine) nor Sudafed should have enough anticholinergic effect to stop a runny nose if that is the primary problem. Chlorpheniramine is an older generation antihistamine that may help, but beware of warnings on the label. Sinus saline irrigation may help more than you'd think. Otherwise, need to discuss with a physician to better characterize your rhinitis to guide effective treatment ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I took Sudafed, Flonase and Afrin (oxymetazoline) but getting no relief for allergy congestion, can I take Claritin on top of the other meds?
Afrin (oxymetazoline)?: You need to see an expert to determine the cause of the congestion and confirm that it is related to allergy. If you have been taking Afrin (oxymetazoline) for more than 5 days consecutively, then the persistent congestion is most likely now caused by the Afrin (oxymetazoline) (it causes sensitization and "rebound congestion"). Claritin can be added safely, but it may not be effective if underlying issue not addressed ...Read more
Allergies/sinuses, 33f, nose runs nonstop, taking Claritin (loratadine) doesn't help. Can i take a zrytech also? Or would sudafed w/ pseudoephedrine help?
Allergies: Your nasal symptoms will respond best to a prescription nasal steroid. Antihistamines seem of limited value in your case. Consider seeing an allergist to achieve adequate control of your symptoms. ...Read more
I'm currently living in Paraguay and I take Zyrtec and Flonase everyday for allergies. This week I added a pill with Sudafed and Claritin in it to clear up extra sinus trouble from a cold, but now I'm having stomachaches and trouble sleeping.

Pseudoephe: Insomnia is a common side effect from pseudoephedrine and I have not recommended it use for at least a decade. Be sure to aim the Flonase towards the sides of the nose and not in the center and see if this works better. If not, time to see a doctor to see if you may have a sinus infection. ...Read more

No caffeine for 6 hrs ; no alcohol or tobacco w/i 2 hrs of sleep. Keep. ...Read more
Which is best for coughing and runny nose (allergies) sudafed or Claritin (loratadine) or claritin-d?
Neither: If you are sure you are dealing with allergies, then an antihistamine is the drug of choice. Sudafed is a decongestant. Claritin is a weak antihistamine and despite the drug labelling can cause drowsiness as can zyrtec. Allegra (fexofenadine) does not cross the blood-brain barrier and thus no drowsiness. A nasal spray either steroid or non-steroid is also useful. ...Read more
