Not Tylenol (acetaminophen): The PM part yes. But, taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) daily is extremely hard in the liver. Use the generic for Benadryl. That is what causes sedation.

Yes: B"sd yes, - some concern NSAID med like advil (ibuprofen) may result in higher levels of glipizide and lower blood sugar. Do not think this is too likely to be a problem. My main concern would be use of glipizide and other sulfonylureas which in long run increase heart attack risk by ~20%. Usually we have better options for diabetes patients - glad to discuss

No: The amount of benadryl, (diphenhydramine) which is the part of that medicine that makes you drowsy, would be higher than the recommended amount to take.
