I have been using Veramyst nasal spray, 2 sprays in each nostril daily, for the past 6 days with little success. If I spray at 6:30 am. it takes 10 to 12 hrs. before I can even notice a very limited reaction. It seems that I need something to get me over the hump until this Veramyst works. I did try one puff of Benzedrex inhaler, in each nostril, last night and it worked wonders!
There are no interactions between the 2 medications, so I would say they are safe to take.-
Interactions between your selected drugs and food
loratadine ↔ food
Applies to: Claritin-D (loratadine/pseudoephedrine)
Theoretically, grapefruit juice may increase the plasma concentrations of loratadine as it does other drugs that are substrates of the CYP450 3A4 enzymatic pathway. The proposed mechanism is inhibition of CYP450 3A4-mediated first-pass metabolism in the gut wall by certain compounds present in grapefruits. The clinical significance of this potential interaction is unknown. Reported interactions with potent CYP450 3A4 inhibitors like clarithromycin, erythromycin and ketoconazole have produced substantial increases in the area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC) of loratadine and its active metabolite, descarboethoxyloratadine, without associated changes in the overall safety profile of the drug.
