In brief: It should be fine 4u
Alcohol increases the chances of you becoming drowsy.
If you are one of the few (less than 1% [12/1900]) who develop drowsiness on Claritin then ingestion alcohol will increase that effect. Yes i know the advertisements say that it is non drowsy. In reality it did cause somnolence and fatigue equal to placebo. Unfortunately, I am one of the special few that get drowsy after taking loratadine.
