OK Claritin/Lisinprl

Claritin appears to be safe with Lisinopril and other medicines in the class of 'ACE inhibitors'. Claritin has an interaction with Diltiazem.

Which Claritin?

Lisinopril
Claritin (Loratadine) should have no effect on blood pressure or interaction with lisinopril. However the addition of a decongestant, such as in Claritin-D (Loratadine plus pseudoephedrine), may itself elevate blood pressure. I thus advise caution when using decongestant medications in such scenarios.

There will not be an interaction. However, I would not recommend Claritn D, Zyrtec D. Allegra D. The decongestant may raise your BP
