You'd know.: If you are functioning pretty well without new or bothersome complaints there is no reason to suspect "overdose". Getting the optimal dose is the goal. When that happens you should have more self-control, improved performance, better social interactions. Neg effects may include "rebound", low appetite, sleep problems. But don't accept these. Instead, talk to dr & get a dose that fits you better. ...Read more
Start with 50mg: This is a starting dose - it can take 15-20 minutes to help. Some pills come as 25mg others as 50 mg over the counter so check that to see if you need 1 or 2.

I've broken out in what I think are hives on my legs. I had diarrhea earlier and I just dry heaved. So I want to know if I can take three Benadryl (diphenhydramine)?
Yes: Read the label and know the potential adverse effects of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) before using. Recommend starting with 50mg dose and can repeat 3-4hrs later if needed. Hives in association with new diarrhea are almost certainly a result of the immune response to infection and should clear up shortly. If they return after Benadryl (diphenhydramine), consider longer acting, newer-generation antihistamine such as cetirizine. ...Read more

Luvox (fluvoxamine) Dosage: Wait for the next dose would be the best as half life for the Luvox (fluvoxamine) is 22 Hrs if you use multiple dose and 12-13 hrs if you use single dose. I would wait for the next dose when it is due as it would not be necessary to take extra dose of Luvox (fluvoxamine) in your case. ...Read more
