In brief: Antihistamines

They are both antihistamines, so i wouldn't take them together. They both act similarly, so their effect would be too much together. Wait until the Claritin (loratadine) wears off, about 24 hours?

In brief: Yes

Claritin (loratadine) is an otc non sedating anthistamine.
Hydroxyzine is a prescription anthistamine that usually makes people sleepy. If necessary, they can be used together for bad allergy symptoms, bad hives or bad itching. But you should do this under a doctors care.
