Can I use afrin (oxymetazoline) and sudafed together?

Yes, but. I recommend that my patients use afrin for an absolute maximum of 5 days if indicated. Sudafed is ok to use at the same time, as long as you have no medical contraindications to using it ( heart problems, high blood pressure, etc). See your doctor if your nasal congestion symptoms are not improved within 5 days of use of either medication.
Yes but for a short. Period of time please.

I am flying for the first time, is it okay to take sudafed with afrin (oxymetazoline)? If so how soon should I use booth before the plane takes off and lands?

No. Both medications are considered decongestants, so you only want to take one or the other, not both. If you take the sudafed, i would take it about 30 minutes prior to flying. If you use the afrin, (oxymetazoline) it tends to start working fairly quickly, so 5-10 minutes prior to flying should be adequate. Read more...

I took Sudafed, Flonase and Afrin (oxymetazoline) but getting no relief for allergy congestion, can I take Claritin on top of the other meds?

Afrin (oxymetazoline)? You need to see an expert to determine the cause of the congestion and confirm that it is related to allergy. If you have been taking Afrin (oxymetazoline) for more than 5 days consecutively, then the persistent congestion is most likely now caused by the Afrin (oxymetazoline) (it causes sensitization and "rebound congestion"). Claritin can be added safely, but it may not be effective if underlying issue not addressed. Read more...
