It is high tree pollen time in my area.  Can I take Claritin and Zyrtec together (in the same day and/or at the same time) to relieve symptoms?

No...taking two of near-identical, long-acting antihistamines is not going to be the magic solution to your seasonal allergies. It is time for you to get some professional help in the way of a mast-cell stabilizer (Singulair) or nasal corticosteroid sprays. Your allergies can be improved, but not in the way you are intending.
