Taking Claritin (loratadine) and zyrtec at the same time?

Not necessary: Both Claritin (loratadine) and zyrtec are considered new generation antihistamines and have the same effects. If a person accidentally took these at the same time, there is likely no adverse effect, but there is really no need to take both for treatment of symptoms. If symptoms of allergies are not controlled, see an allergist for a better treatment plan. ...Read more

I get headaches from allergies. Can i take Claritin (loratadine) and zyrtec at the same time? Claritin (loratadine) didn't work alone when i traveled away from home.

Yes, but: Both Claritin (loratadine) and zyrtec (cetirizine) are new generation antihistamines. While there is no harm to using them together, there is likely no added benefit either. The most effective treatment for nasal allergies is the topical nasal steroid sprays such as qnasl, flonase, veramyst, nasonex, (mometasone) etc if a person doesn't have relief with an antihistamine alone. ...Read more

Are Claritin (loratadine) and zyrtec the same effectiveness when use for allergic rhinitis?

Are Claritin (loratadine) and zyrtec the same effectiveness when use for allergic rhinitis?

Yes: Claritin (loratadine) and zyrtec are both oral antihistamine agents that block the effects of histamine on what is called the h1 receptor. By doing this, they reduce the release of histamine, a substance that causes itching, runny nose, and sneezing. Zyrtec blocks the receptor a bit better, but the clinical effect of the medications is roughly the same. Zyrtec may cause some drowsiness, but may last longer. ...Read more
