Can metformin and lisinopril and anthenol mess with memory. I take these meds for blood pressure and diabetes.?
Usually no: Generally those meds are tolerated very well. Atenolol can cause depression in some people which may be leading to memory issues. You should mention this to your doc and see if you need blood work done to evaluate any possible medication side-effects. Medications should always be considered as the cause of new or unusual symptoms, so you are right to think about these issues being due to meds. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm currently taking 275 of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) all day and singular,pepsid and Zyrtec along with prednisone. Have suffered with anaphylactic shock. Zofran ok ?
Zofran (ondansetron): Is just another antihistamine,acts centrally though, and mainly for nausea/vomiting, won't add any benefit if you already are controlled on the medicines mentioned, besides it isn't the first line therapy in anaphylaxis. Discuss with your doctor if you still have symptoms, good luck ...Read more
I'm having lots of itching and sneezing. Want to try benadryl (diphenhydramine). Is it ok to take with klonopin, seroquel and ambien?
Lots of interactions: There are lots of interaction between all 3 medicines you are taking which in combination cause brain depression and psychomotor impairment. Adding Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will further aggravate side effects. Why do you have to take first three drugs in the first place. Look for the cause for depression anxiety or whatever reason you are taking mess. Visit us at www.ehacstl.com to see how you can be helped ...Read more

Can antihistamines make my hypoglycemia worse? Seems like i'm having more low blood sugar occurrences while on Claritin (loratadine) or allegra.
Allegra (fexofenadine): I don't think so. If you really observe hypoglycemia when taking antihistamine then make you sure you eat 3 times a day, eat fruits between meal and just before your meal. Symptomatic hypoglycemia usually occur when blood sugar <80. We like to keep it above than 100. Symptom could include irritability, dizziness, sweating, weakness, confusion, passing out or death. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm on Prednisolone and Allegra (fexofenadine) for a severe allergy attack (hives, itching, swollen eyes) Can I safely take Valium to help me relax and sleep?
Yes: Sometimes prednisolone and other steroid products can cause insomnia or restless sleep. While allegra (fexofenadine) is an antihistamine and has a potential for drowsiness , it is of low potential. It is ok to take valium at night but I would not do it indefinitely because can be habit forming. ...Read more
Can taking allegra, zyrtec, and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at the same time cause you to have worse allergies and also get hives?
No: It is not advisable to take 2 or more antihistamines together without md supervision. Taking multiple antihistamines together will not cause increased allergy symptoms or hives and if used properly under md supervision multiple antihistamines can control difficult to treat symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Don't take together: All 3 drugs mentioned are antihistamines available w/o prescription. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is most potent but also most laden w/anticholinergic side effects, eg sedation, dry eyes/mouth, constipation, urinary retention etc. Zyrtec (cetirizine) is more sedating than Claritin (loratadine). Both have less potential side effects than Benadryl but you need to find best for you. Don't take together. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can I take Zyrtec and Claritin together? Or can I take Zyrtec and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to boost the Zyrtec? Will taking Mucinex DM along with Zyrtec help?
See your doctor: If your allergies are not controlled with one med alone, stepping up to a different med like flonase, nasonex, etc., will likely help you more than taking two antihistamines. Zyrtec and Claritin will not help much at all if you have a cold and not allergies, though Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can dry up secretions somewhat. You can add Mucinex if you also have a cough. Talk with your doctor about your symptoms. ...Read more
