Can I take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and also use allergy eye drops (naphazoline & pheniramine)?

Yes: These drugs can supplement each other. Any systemic effect of the eyedrops is trivial compared to the strength of the Benadryl (diphenhydramine) so the combination is useful if the allergic symptoms are affecting other parts of your body.
