See your doctor: Or an allergist, seems your symptoms need more control and OTC drugs aren't working. No harm of combining claritin and zyrtec 6 hours apart, but don't repeat without doctor's advice. Zicam is controversial and the FDA issued a warning about using the product and there was a recall. Check aaaai.org or acaai.org for an allergist in your area, good luck ...Read more
I'm currently living in Paraguay and I take Zyrtec and Flonase everyday for allergies. This week I added a pill with Sudafed and Claritin in it to clear up extra sinus trouble from a cold, but now I'm having stomachaches and trouble sleeping.

Pseudoephe: Insomnia is a common side effect from pseudoephedrine and I have not recommended it use for at least a decade. Be sure to aim the Flonase towards the sides of the nose and not in the center and see if this works better. If not, time to see a doctor to see if you may have a sinus infection. ...Read more
Allergic rhinitis and sinusitis. Went from loratadine claratin To Zyrtec To finally Xyzal. The first 2 meds didn't help much. Is Xyzal more effective?
Allergy treatment: Basically, claritin, loratidine, zyrtec, allegra and xyzal are all 2nd generation antihistamines. If your symptoms are not controlled on these, you may need to be given intranasal steroids like flonase, nasonex or other treatments like singular, and also trying regular nasal saline. If still no improvement, time to see the allergist. ...Read more
Headache is getting worse. I have been on claritin, flonaz, and zyrtec but nothing seems to help long-term. Any suggestions?
Evaluation: I would recommend that you confirm with your provider if allergies are the reason for your headache. You have used allergy medications to treat your headache and apparently have not had benefit. I think it may be likely that your headache is not allergy related at this point. ...Read more
How much allegra is safe on a daily basis? My system needs a break from claritin and zyrtec apparently, but 1 allegra is not working fully.
Can I take Zyrtec and Claritin together? Or can I take Zyrtec and Benadryl 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 can dry up secretions somewhat. You can add mucinex if you also have a cough. Talk with your doctor about your symptoms. ...Read more
