Can you take 75 mg diphenhydramine HCl (tylenol (acetaminophen) simply sleep) with .5 mg diazepam (valium)?
Probably: I think you mean 5 mg of diazepam, not .5. 75 mg of diphenydramine is a bit high. Tegether, they synergize for additional sedation. Alone, it is probably not enough to be a problem, but if combined with other sedating agents or alcohol, you would be taking a risk, possibly a serious one. ...Read more

Yes: there are no contraindications with any medication, as far as I know.

I am prescribed .50mg Xanax (alprazolam) 3/daily, 75mg Amitriptyline, and 50mg Trazadone. I'm 6'1, 232 male. Is this safe?
OVERLAPPING MEDS: The combo of Meds you are on looks like you are being treated for anxiety and depression . Xanax (alprazolam) is short acting for anxiety . Trazadone and amitriptyline are long acting for anxiety and depression but are very similar and both cause weight gain.. I would taper trazadone and start cymbalta. You need full lab work up including TFTS. Also a sleep study to rule out sleep apnea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it OK to take PRAZOSIN HCL 5MG with EFFEXOR (venlafaxine) XR 75MG, PENICILLIN VK 500MG, IBUPROFEN 400MG, HYDROXYZINE PAM 50MG VIT, HYDROCODONE-ACETAMINOPHEN 5?
Not OK: Haven't we met before over this question? Why is a 17 y.o. taking ALL that medication? What's going on? I assume the Penicillin's temporary? But HYDROCODONE+ Ibuprofen? What type of pains need all that @ your age? Prazosin for.....nightmares? And hydroxyzine for itching or nausea?

Can i take 1000 mgs Depakote 10 mgs Valium 25 mgs doxepin and 300 mgs Trileptal together at bed time?
There is a drug : Interaction between trileptal and valium. Valium blood levels rise in the presence of trieptal, so it is generally recommended practice to lower the valium dose while on trileptal. All of the other medications are safe to be taken together. I would not take the full 25 mg of valium along with the combination however. Talk to your prescribing physician about this. Best wishes. ...Read more
