Hi there - unless you have had issues with QT prolongation (a heart rhythm issue) it would be safe to take the occasional dose of loratadine whilst you are being treated with methadone. I hope this answers your question and that you do get some relief from your allergies soon. If you are happy with my answer please give me a rating. Thanks.
