In brief: Don't do it!!!

10 mg is the approved dose in the USA, Although the adult dose of Loratadine in other parts of the world is 20 mg.
Taking higher doses, will increase your chances of developing heart rhythm problems. High doses of Loratadine have increased the QT interval of some patients. See: http://www.nps.org.au/publications/health-professional/health-news-evidence/2013/drugs-QT-invterval

Dr. Matos is right (as usual!). If you did do it, please call Poison Control or your doctor right away.
