A female asked:

I took 5mg of valium 6 hours ago... is it safe to take 30 ml of diphenhydramine now to fall asleep? or will the two interact?

Likely: ok but may add to the drowsiness which is apparently what you want.

Will interact: taking both might increase CNS depression, better avoid, and exercise caution with multiple drugs, good luck
