Can I Take Two Claritin D
I accidentally took two Claritin D about one hour apart. This is the 12-hour formula. Is there a problem with this?
Unlikely: You've had a double dose of the decongestant which can keep you from sleeping well, increase your heart rate and increase your blood pressure. The double dose of Claritin is unlikely to cause you any issues in the next 12 hours. I do not think you need any immediate medical attention unless you develop any concerning symptoms. ...Read more

I take generic Claritin d (loratadine 10mg + pseudoephedrine 280 mg). Would 6 be enough to overdose?
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

I have cold and congestion. I took Claritin -d, is it ok to take my maxalt (rizatriptan) mlt 10 for headache?
Yes: However, both the "d" in clariten d and the Maxalt (rizatriptan) mlt can cause a feeling of a pounding heartbeat, so beware of this possible side effect. In fact whenever you mix medicines, they can increase some side effects. ...Read more

Once the results: Return - you can determine if the rerun test showed anything. Some things can cause false positives on drug screen panels. But you will need to see what it was positive for before you can see if that might be the cause. ...Read more
I am 14 weeks pregnant I took a Claritin D just once is that ok as long as I don't take it again or can it hurt baby?
You're just fine: Claritin D won't hurt your baby even more than once, claritin (loratadine) is category B, while D (pseudoephedrine) is category C, with pregnancy, B is safer than C though, but both are safe, confer with your obstetrician on the next prenatal care visit, wish you a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby ...Read more
Is it safe to take claritin-d every day? Are there long term side effects and what does pseudoephedrine interact with, if anything?
Allergies: In general, it it safe to take antihistamines everyday for allergies. Claritin-d includes the decongestant as you mentioned, and I tend to avoid that for people on a long term basis. It increases vasoconstriction and this has a variety of effects including more work for the heart and elevated blood pressure. There are other medications that can help with congestion. See ent/allergist. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
