can I use loratadine claritin and ambien zolpidem

 

Can I use loratadine and Ambien together at the same time?

Loratadine (sold under the brand name Claritin®) is a antihistamine. This allergy medication reduces allergy symptoms by blocking histamine in the body. Most people tolerated it very well. The most common side effects include drowsiness and headache.

Ambien (and the generic Zolpidem) is a popular sleeping medication. Most people report few side effects, with the most common being headache, dry mouth, drowsiness, lightheadedness, and  constipation.




There have not been any serious interaction identified between loratadine and Ambien. It is possible the loratadine could increase the drowsiness caused by the zolpidem, but I wouldn’t expect it to be an issue for most people.

Always be certain to talk with a healthcare provider if you are uncertain about taking medications together. A quick chat with your doctor or pharmacist can give you peace of mind.
