Med combo: You need to be careful about being overly sedated ( drowsy, unable to drive or operate heavy machinery etc)... Especially with a neurontin / Benadryl (diphenhydramine) combo... Make sure your prescribing doc is informed about your addition of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) / NyQuil BEFORE you implement this change !
