Benadryl 12 Hour
Can you take 25mg Benadryl 12 hours after taking regular allegra? I take toprol (metoprolol) XL 50 mg for blood pressure
Combination Tx?: Yes, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and claritinare both antihistamine but different classes. They have different side effects with Benadryl (diphenhydramine) having more sedation. Because of this Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is best given before bed and Claritin given in the morning. Do no give at the same time. Allergy symptoms (usually allergic nose or hives) can be better controlled this way. As with any medications do not give for prolonged time. ...Read more
Yes: Benedryl has some benefits as a really tenacious antihistamine that binds well with histamine & is very effective in that work. Its drawback is sedation which occurs because it enters the brain & messes with messages between nerve cells. You can take benedryl along with a non-sedating antihistamine as long as you can handle the side effects. ...Read more
Possibly not: I would avoid taking multiple antihistamines in the same day. ...Read more

Antihistamines: Yes you can, but you really should have some doctor guidance with your medications, because you did not mention what symptoms you are treating with the antihistamines and they may not be the ideal medication if you are not responding to one and need to add another. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Taking 120 mg pseudoephedrine every 12 hours, 10 mg loratadine in morning, and one Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at bedtime, is this ok?
Medication question: It is okay to take the pseudoephedrine with the loratadine. However, the nighttime Benadryl (diphenhydramine) would be considered a duplication of the loratadine which is a 24 hour medication. Without knowing more about your medical history, I would not suggest that you do that. Instead, I would suggest discussing the optimum management of your medications with your doctor. ...Read more
Yes: No interaction, good that you asked, always exercise caution with multiple medications ...Read more
Yes: As long as you are aware that this may make you drowsy- perhaps that's what you want in the first place. ...Read more

I sampled a little bit of alcohol a few hours ago, is it safe to take some benadryl (diphenhydramine)?
Probably OK: If you have had less than 2 drinks, it is probably ok to take a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) knowing that it may make you more drowsy. I certainly would not advise driving your car home however until you know for sure how much the combination may affect your mental alertness. ...Read more
