Can I give my 14 yr old Advil allergy & congestion relief if she already took a Claritin (loratadine) this morning ?
I am extremely congested with mucus in my nose to the point i can't breath or blow out my nose, should I go the hospital I have taken Claritin (loratadine) and Advil congestion relief already
Nasal : Nasal congestion is pretty miserable, but without high fever, dizziness, or severe pain, you are better off calling your doctor's office for an appointment than going to the hospital. Often congestion is not from mucus buildup, but is from swelling of the nasal tissues so there is nothing to blow out. The best things to do until your appointment are to run a humidifier in the room you sleep in, drink hot liquids (like tea or broth), or take a hot shower and breathe in the steam. These can all help you feel better. Good luck! ...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
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

Have really bad nose congestion and I took one Claritin (loratadine) d non drowsy. I am starting to feel really tired, is this normal? Also, there isnt much relief
Yes but: Claritin can indeed cause drowsiness in a few people especially when the dose is doubled. On the other hand, th decongestant part (D) tends to keep people awake and thus your reaction is not common but not totally unexpected. We rarely use oral decongestant nowadays given that nasal steroid /nasal antihistamine are more effective with far less side effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I took alka seltzer plus at 9:15 pm not fully reading it. I have mostly nasal congestion. When can I take either DayQuil or Advil cold and sinus?
Vapor inhalation: Rather than taking either of these medications, you may help your congestion better by taking steam or water vapor inhalation. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
