Can I take an alavert or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) with flonase?

Both to help more. Nasal steroid such as Flonase is the front line treatment for allergic rhinitis, but at time people do need more than a spray--adding an antihistamine such as alavert, zyrtec, benadryl, (diphenhydramine) Allegra is quite common--they do not interact and in fact both work to help your allergies. Of course, use the smallest effective dose when needed. Good luck.

Can you take Alavert with Flonase and benadryl?

You should not. Alavert is a non-sedating antihistamine (loratadine), which is the same active ingredient as Claritin. Benadryl is also a antihistamine, but causes more sedation than loratadine. The two should not be taken together as they are the same class of medication with similar mechanisms of action. Flonase is a nasal steroid which can be used with either Alavert or Benadryl.

See ENT/allergist. You may be more sensitive to allergens than others or the combinations of medications you are using is not the right selection for you. Worst case scenario is that your perceived allergy symptoms may be something else entirely.
