If my allergies are really bad, do I need to worry about overdosing on allergy meds?

No: If taken as prescribed, you should not have issues at all. Most allergy meds are anti-histamines ... An over-dosage is just going to cause disruptions in alertness, dry mouth, etc. But if your allergy meds aren't working... See out an ENT who does allergy or an allergist. You may be a candidate for immunotherapy - you may get to the point you could stop taking meds all together.

Can you really die from an overdose of diphenhydramine?

Dr. Steven Machtinger

Yes.: There are numerous studies & case reports in the medical literature of deaths due to either accidental or intentional overdoses of Diphenhydramine (benadryl). The drug has a high therapeutic index meaning the dose needed to cause death is many times higher than that needed to produce beneficial effects. Its always a good idea to be cautious with all drugs - prescribed, otc, herbal or homeopathic.

What will happen if I have a Flonase overdose?

Depends: How big an overdose? If its just a few extra sprays a few times, likely nothing will happen. If it is many sprays a day over months or years, you run the low risk of systemic absorption and typical steroid side effects. This can include secondary infection, weight gain, cataracts, liver changes, osteoporosis etc. This would be rare and require a massive overdose.
