Can Allegra be taken with Paxil, nortriptyline, and Aleve and hydrochlorothiazide, and dulera (formoterol and mometasone)?
It is usually: Not a good idea to take antihistamines with psychotropics such as nortriptyline or SSRIs. They potentiate sedative effects. I would see a healthcare provider who is familiar with your health to see if you can safely stop one of the two psychotropics while you are on Allegra, (fexofenadine) if you absolutely need to take it for allergic rhinitis or sinus problems. The others should not interfere too much. ...Read more
Yes: Only if you need all of them. ...Read more
Can I take Zyrtec and Claritin together? Or can I take Zyrtec and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to boost the Zyrtec? Will taking Mucinex DM along with Zyrtec help?
See your doctor: If your allergies are not controlled with one med alone, stepping up to a different med like flonase, nasonex, etc., will likely help you more than taking two antihistamines. Zyrtec and Claritin will not help much at all if you have a cold and not allergies, though Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can dry up secretions somewhat. You can add Mucinex if you also have a cough. Talk with your doctor about your symptoms. ...Read more

If otherwise healthy: Many people report their 'daily' non-sedating antihistamine in the am does not provide relief until next am. So, if no concerns for gu/heart/bp/med-conflict issues, then they often take a 'sedating' anthistamine at night for continued symptom relief and 'bonus' of sleep aid effect. ...Read more
Can you take zyrtec, (cetirizine) sudafed, flovent in morning and then take promethazine and tramadol in evening?
Treating symptoms: The question should be why do I need all of these med to start with. What is giving me the allergies? Is it food , i surly could be , is it toxicity from heavy metals solvents of other poisons? Could be. You need to find a doctor who will look into the toxic causes rather than load you with medication for the symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it ok to take zyrtec (cetirizine) (antihistamine for allergies) and dayquil (cold/flu medicine) together?
Depends: If you are taking plain zyrtec (cetirizine) (antihistamine only) you can take dayquil, but you should not take nyquil which also contains an antihistamine. Zyrtec (cetirizine) d contains a decongestant and antihistamine so it should not be mixed with other meds such as dayquil. It is always important to read the ingredient labels of any over the counter medicines as many medicine contain the same or similar ingredients. ...Read more

But you should use your own experience to help you select any cold or congestion remedy.

Don't take together: All 3 drugs mentioned are antihistamines available w/o prescription. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is most potent but also most laden w/anticholinergic side effects, eg sedation, dry eyes/mouth, constipation, urinary retention etc. Zyrtec (cetirizine) is more sedating than Claritin (loratadine). Both have less potential side effects than Benadryl but you need to find best for you. Don't take together. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
