In brief: No

Claritin (loratadine) d is either every 12 hours or every 24 hours, don't take two in an hour, you will experience side effects from excess decongestant raising your blood pressure, givign you tremors and a rapid heart rate.
Th is is not safe, .

In brief: The d is the problem

It is not the Claritin (loratadine) but the d which can elevate your blood pressure and keep you awake when the dose is doubled.
