Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms, well you can use claritin with lorazepam safely but NOT claritin-D. The reason being that claritin D contains pseudoephedrine which can interact with lorazepam and lead to markedly increased sedation. This can be dangerous if used without the supervision of a doctor. I would recommend that you use simple claritin or simple allegra instead which will be helpful in controlling some of the symptoms as well. At the same time you can start using OTC dextromethorphan to control the cough.

If you still want to use claritin D then i would suggest that you use the two drugs with a time gap. This means if that you take lorazepam at 8 PM at night then you should use claritin-D at 8 AM in the morning, this will help mitigate the interaction that these two have together.

Do you have any more questions?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
