Can I take Claritin (loratadine) 24 hour with allegra 24 hour? I took the Claritin (loratadine) cause that's all I had but my husband bought allegra which I prefer.

Not if "D" formula: Often the number 24 refers to the "d" formulas. Claritin (loratadine) d24 and Allegra d 24 each contain 240 mg of pseudoephedrine, equivalent to 8 small red tablets of sudafed. You definitely wouldn't want to take 2 of the decongestant type of these medications in one day. On the other hand, taking one plain Claritin (loratadine) 10 mg and one plain Allegra 180 mg on the same day would be fine. Much more was used in tests. ...Read more
