Can I take Claritin D 12 hour (pseudoephedrine and loratidine) with NyQuil?

Not recommended: Both have decongestants in them so I would not. Claritin (loratadine) D is an antihistamine and decongestant combined, NyQuil typically has decongestants and cough suppressants.

Claritin d and Mucinex (guaifenesin) can you take them together?

Yes: Claritin d combines an antihistamine (loratadine) with a decongestant (pseudo-ephedrine). Mucinex (guaifenesin) is an expectorant. These are safe to take together. Would make sure that mucinex product is plain mucinex and not mucinex-d (which also contains pseudo-ephedrine) before taking these together.

Claritin (loratadine) 12 hour and nyquil safe to take together?

Antihistamines: Both medications have antihisstamines. Not sure what you are treating, but if you need both on the same day, then it may be better to see an allergist and get another type of medication to control your symptoms. You should be able to take them together but over time the strategy is not effective.

Can I take Claritin d after taking two allerga?

Can I take Claritin d after taking two allerga?

Yes: Claritin D contains a decongestant which Allegra (as opposed to Allegra D does not). However if you need that much antihistamine you may find a nasal steroid working far better (needs several days to get optimal results)

Can I take Claritin d 12 hour (pseudoephedrine and loratidine) at morning and night every day?

Claritin-D: Claritin (loratadine)-d 12 hour can be taken twice daily chronically but it can have side effects. Taking a decongestant can lead to hypertension or insomnia. I would recommend trying claritin-d in the morning and just standard Claritin (loratadine) at night. This would give you the best treatment with minimal side effects.

I've taken 3 doses of mucinex (guaifenesin) sinus max severe congestion relief today I'm over due for my next dose. Can I take Claritin -D instead now?

Yes: A good idea for self-medicating cold/sinus symptoms is to list your symptoms and present the list to the pharmacist who can guide you through the litany of options. If self-medication fails to improve symptoms or they worsen, best to consult a physician. That said, if you are otherwise healthy (and have no serious heart or blood pressure related condition) can now take the claritin-D.

Can I take Claritin D for nasal congestion while on a beta blocker for POTS syndrome or is that contraindicated?

Can I take Claritin D for nasal congestion while on a beta blocker for POTS syndrome or is that contraindicated?

Not a good choice: I would not advise using a nasal decongestant while taking a beta blocker since the net result of the interaction or counter-reaction cannot be predicted. A nasal steroid will likely work far better than Clartin D without the potential side effects.
