Yes, but why?: Studies of loritadine show the medication is well tolerated at twice the recommended 10 mg dose.

It may make u Drowsy: The full adult dose of Loratadine in other parts of the world is 20 mg. This amount caused a 12-14% drowsiness rate.

I'm having severe itchy burning head from hair color allergy. Can I take two Loratadine tablets 10 milligram? One isn't helping very much
Worthless: There is no role for loratadine in treating this type of allergic reaction. A physician needs to evaluate the reaction and treat appropriately.
