Of course, use the smallest effective dose when needed. Good luck. ...Read more

Flonase is a nasal steroid which can be used with either Alavert or Benadryl ...Read more

In people with normal QT, very large doses or overdoses of benadryl can prolong the QT and have serious or fatal consequences.

Simple Care: Sunburn is response of the tissues to injury from solar radiation. It is simply inflammation which means increase blood flow to the area to promote healing.

Mucus: Depends....If you have a ton of mucus sitting in the sinuses, then yes, it can thicken up the large quantity of mucus already there. If you are trying to dry up the mucus forming, it is a good alternative. There is much debate. Overall, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a poor choice since it lasts only 4-6 hours and causes extreme drowsiness. Go with a 24-hour non-sedating antihistamine. ...Read more
