There is no problem taking Claritin-D with Tylenol or Claritin-D with Advil. In fact, combination products (i.e. Advil Allergy Sinus) exist with the same ingredient or same class of ingredients as the ingredients within these individual products. As with any over-the-counter (OTC) products, read and follow dosage directions. Also, pay particular attention when taking other OTC products containing Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Advil (ibuprofen) because taking more than the recommended dose or other products containing the same ingredients can cause toxicity and overdose and lead to liver damage. If you ever have questions about over-the-counter medications, be sure to ask your pharmacist.
