Depends: Vicks nyquil has many products that contain combinations of older antihistamines, decongestants, pain releivers and/or cough suppressants.

Can I take nyquil at night when I'm also taking Claritin (loratadine) and atarax?

Can I take nyquil at night when I'm also taking Claritin (loratadine) and atarax?

Claritin (loratadine) Not Atarax: You may combine nyquil & claritin (loratadine). The latter is a non-sedating antihistamine. Nyquil contains a sedating antihistamine & Atarax is another. Liquid formulations of nyquil contain a lot of alcohol. So if a drunken stupor is your goal you'll achieve it with nyquil & atarax. There are better & safer ways to treat your allergies. Skin testing is more cost-effective than immunocap & equally accurate. ...Read more

Nyquil, which one?: Most nyquil preparations contain antihistaminic, some contain a decongestant, no harm of taking them together, but better hold the claritin (loratadine) d, which contains both an antihistaminic and a decongestant, until done with the nyquil, keep the flonase, mind you, if no improvement better see / call your doctor ...Read more

I have a horrible cold but I take klonipin, omeprazole & Claritin daily. Is it save to vitamin (s) & Tylenol (acetaminophen) & nyquil? Claritin is taken in the am

Yes: In fact if you need omeprazole daily, you will need to take magnesium and possible calcium supplement + vit D3 as well since omeprazole reduces magnesium and probably calcium absorption. ...Read more

Is it ok to combine Claritin (loratadine) d with nyquil?

Yes but why?: Claritin (loratadine) d is a non-sedating antihistamine-decongestant combination used to treat allergies. Nyquil is used to treat common cold symptoms. It also may contain an antihistamine and decongestant, but the antihistamine is often sedating. This would not be something to use for allergies. Thus, using both would be a 'strange' combination. ...Read more

I gave to my 6 year old chlidren nyquil and childrens claritin (loratadine). Is it safe? What should I do?

OK, but....: Your child will be ok receiving these two medicines at the same time. Claritin (loratadine) will most likely do very little to help with the runny nose, and many studies have shown that children's "cough medicines" do not work and sometimes can have unwanted side effects. ...Read more

I took a claritan this am. Can I take nyquil tonight?

Yes: Claritin (loratadine) apparently is an antihistamine that does not cross the blood brain barrier and should not cause sedation. NyQuil does sedate the brain to help you to sleep. I believe it is perfectly safe to take both because they act on different targets in the body and do not cross-react. ...Read more

Can you take claritan during the day and nyquil at night?

Claritin (loratadine): Claritin (loratadine) is a non/sedating antihistamine, which is a longer acting drug. The usual dosing in only one a day. Nyquil has antihistamine in it, too, but it's an older one and will make most people drowsy. By taking Claritin (loratadine) in the morning and nyquil at night, you are getting more antihistamine than is recommended. Better to use a shooter acting non-sedating antihistamine like allegra. ...Read more

Is it safe to take niquil with claritin (loratadine)?

Is it safe to take niquil with claritin (loratadine)?

Probably ok to do: Claritin (loratadine) is a once-a-day medication, and does wear off some by night time. If nyquil, with its own antihistamine, is taken at night time, there should not be a big problem. Nyquil is usually used for just a few days during cold or flu symptoms. A doctor can evaluate prolonged or bothersome symptoms, to see if there something serious going on. ...Read more

24 hour claritan in morning nyquil at night?

Claritin (loratadine) and NyQuil: While you are getting two antihistamines, loratidine is a non-sedating antihistamine and doxylamine is a sedating antihistamine. The doxylamine had a half-life of 6-12 hours, so some will still be in your system the next morning. It is probably ok, but I wouldn't push it. ...Read more
