In brief: Should be OK!

Good afternoon, adding one Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for symptom relief in addition to Claritin is acceptable.
These drugs act through different mechanisms and should not cause any additive side effects. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a sedating antihistamine, which should come handy to fall asleep at night and have a good night's sleep and be ready for action the next day! good luck.
