I took Claratin 10 hours ago for my allergies. It didn't work at all. I'm having a huge allergy attack and wondering if it's ok to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) now?

3 doctors agree

In brief: Yes, and go to ER

As you need to see a doctor as well if you have such uncontrollable allergic reaction, you might need an epinephrine shot too
