A 31-year-old male asked:

I was curious if benadryl (diphenhydramine) is safe to take with percocets.

Careful. Drowsiness.: Both narcotics and traditional antihistamines cause drowsiness and "groginess"; ask your pharmacist or provider for instructions before taking them together; and don't drive. That being said, it is not unusual to see strong (prescription) cough suppressants containing both a narcotic and an antihistamine. Why are you taking both? Perhaps for sleep? Ask for an alternative.

Safe to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) with hylands nighttime?

Yes: Hylands nighttime is an homeopathic preparation which really contains only very minute quantities of ingredients even if they are active medications.
