In brief: OK Claritin/Lisinprl
Claritin (loratadine) appears to be safe with Lisinopril and other medicines in the class of 'ace inhibitors'.
Claritin (loratadine) has an interaction with diltiazem.

In brief: Which Claritin (loratadine)?
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 (fexofenadine) d. The decongestant may raise your bp.
