Yes you can. But better hydroxyzine at night and loratadine in the morning. Don't exceed prescribed dosages, and keep the follow up with your doctors. Loratadine should be non sedating, however, in some it can cause sedation, so if that happens be cautious, and tell your doctor about it, as hydroxyzine is sedating too.
