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 one wears off before trying the other, about 24 hours or so.

In brief: Best not to......

They are both antihistamines, one sedating and one non-sedating, best not to and should be no need to take two antihistamines together at the same time.
