Taking Zyrtec And Claritin At The Same Time

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: 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.
