I took claritin an 1.5 hours ago. Can't sleep and it didn't help. Can I take benadryl (diphenhydramine)? I have severe seasonal allergies.

In brief: Best to avoid

Because Claritin (loratadine) & Benadryl (diphenhydramine) are both antihistamines, it's best not to take both in same day.
Talk to your Family Doc about other alternatives to treat your allergies.
