Is it okay to mix childrens allegra & childrens tylenol (acetaminophen) to treat cold/pains on a 2 year old?
Yes but.....: Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Allegra are ok together but Allegra is not useful for "colds" as it won't control the runny, stuffy nose unless due to an allergy to inhalants (e.g. Dust mite, pollen, pet dander). Current american academy of pediatrics recommendations are use tylenol (acetaminophen) for fever, aches but no antihistamines or decongestants for nasal symptoms as they are largely ineffective and can have side-effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is there anything u can give a two year old to help him sleep? Is tylenol (acetaminophen) pm safe?
Yes- not a sleep med: Tylenol (acetaminophen) PM is safe at the recommended dose for your child. However, it should be used if he or she is sick rather than as a sleep medication. Once in a while that is not a problem. But regular use in that way will not teach your child how to calm down and get to sleep without meds. That is not what it is for. I also suspect that regular use is not safe. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is it possible that i give my two-year-old children's Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for seasonal allergies?
Yes: Yes, you can give your 2 year old child Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for allergy symptoms. Its onset is fast within 15-60 minutes and it lasts for about 4-6 hours. Otc zyrtec's onset is also fast and it lasts for 24 hours. Keep in mind that those medications can control mild allergy symptoms. If your child still suffers from the disease after taking otc meds, you might want to bring him or her to see an allergist. ...Read more

I am on Eliquis. This morning (17 hours ago), I took Lexapro 10 mg. Tonight, I took 2 extra strength Tylenol and 2 Benadryl. Can I take an Ativan too?
Yes: Ativan does not interfere with the medications you took. But the combination of Benadryl and Ativan may make you feel extra drowsy and dizzy. It’s a good idea to make sure you take these before bed (as opposed to before any activity that requires coordination, like driving / operating heavy machinery, which could pose a danger to others) the first time so that you get a sense of how you react. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can my sons doctor prescribe something for pain for my two year old that has extreme strep, tylenol (acetaminophen) and motrin just are not even cutting it anymore :(?
Call your doctor: First, be sure you are giving the right dosage of the medications for your child's weight. Acetaminophen with Codeine is one option if otc cold medication is not helping. However if symptoms are worsening despite antibiotics or he is not able to swallow, you may need to have him seen again to be sure nothing more serious is going on that would warrant a different treatment regimen. ...Read more

Recently found out I likely have high histamine. I had a reaction to Advil&Aleve. Would Tylenol also cause a histamine reaction? My nose and throat became very blocked/congested. Took Benadryl which helped. But throat feels like golf balls In my thrt
Aspirin-intolerance?: I presume that you either have nasal congestion/asthma or an anaphylactic reaction to NSIDS in general. The reactions are not considered primarily a histamine-mediated one. Tylenol or Cox-2 inhibitors should be tolerated. If Benadryl helps your symptoms, you should consult an allergist to find out what can be done to make you feel better. ...Read more
Med interaction: Tylenol (acetaminophen) 3 has a morphine class of medicine, which can make some people sleepy or depress the body's functions: decreased breathing, slow down the gut and decrease the heart rate. This is especially true in large amounts. If you add diphenhydramine, another sedating medication, could be detrimental if the dose is too high for you. ...Read more
I took 2 tylenol (acetaminophen) pm 18 hours ago. The box says not to take meds containing diphenhydramine for 24 hours. Is it safe to take clearquil before 24 hrs?
Diphenhydramine: Which qlearquil formulation do you want to use? At any rate , read the labels carefully as you did with tylenol (acetaminophen) pm, the idea is not to exceed a total dose of diphenhydramine of 300 mg/24 hours,so if you took 2 tylenol (acetaminophen) pm18 hrs ago, that has 50 mg of diphenhydramine,you should be fine, the label on the tylenol (acetaminophen) was meant to protect you from overdosing if you took full dose of it besides other meds ...Read more
Are there any real benefits to herbs/supplements vs some over-the-counter drugs? Ie: melanin vs diphenhydramine, peppermint/catnip vs tylenol (acetaminophen)?
Absolutely: Let's clarify - over-the-counter drugs (otcs) are virtually the same medications as prescription ones except that they've been granted the freedom to be sold without prescription due to their "benign" profile. Supplements are not medications in and of themselves. They are more or less "naturally" derived preparations that are used for the same purpose as meds. Some of them can be as effective too. ...Read more

My 2 1/2 year old is running a slight temp, but is also suffering from congestion and puffy red watering eyes, is it safe to give her tylenol (acetaminophen) and benadryl? If so, how much should the doses be?
Benadryl (diphenhydramine) in toddlers: Two years old is the youngest age that Benadryl (diphenhydramine) should be used. The Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will be of no value in the treatment of a boil. Boils are treated by removal of the pus usually with an incision and washing it out. Antibiotics are rarely indicated. If you are using Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for another reason, it is not associated with side effects when combined with common antibiotics. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
