can i take fluticasone propionate nasal spray and benadryl (diphenhydramine) together?

Yes: Fluticasone is a nasal steroid spray while Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a traditional antihistamine. There is no drug interactions to worry about. For allergy treatment, consider a new generation antihistamine such as claritin, zyrtec or Allegra as they have less side effects than benadryl (diphenhydramine).
