Is it safe to take diphenhydramine (benadryl), glucophage (metformin) and lisinopril?

You mean together?: Yes, for persons with healthy kidneys. Doctor follow up is needed anyways since these persons must have diabetes and hypertension. If kidneys are diseased, Lisinopril may transiently decrease kidney function. If so, metformin may need to be stopped. This is another reason for need for doctors supervision. Sometimes people miss doc's appointment not aware of these complexities. ...Read more

Generalized itching for five months. No rash, normal blood work no allergies found. Zyrtec. Benadryl, and hydroxyzine don't work what's wrong with me?

Very difficult: You omitted details. Exactly which blood tests? May be serious. Best see a dermatologist. Never due to laundry products. Not due to food. Only sedation or placebo effect with any antihistamine. Severe, generalized itch with no rash is very difficult to define or treat. Sometimes we find an underlying disease which needs attention. You need a professional, not a DR without experience with this. ...Read more

Is it okay if to take 2 benadryls and I melatonin?

Doses?: Depends on the dose of Benadryl. If you have insomnia, sleep hygiene is an often overlooked, yet more effective treatment, than medications. In addition, the combination of medications could impair decision making, cause undesired drowsiness, and other side effects. Speak with your doctor, before taking any combination of medications. Do not drive/operate heavy machinery under their influence. ...Read more

Yes, if adult: Assuming the Benadryl is 25mg per capsule, it is ok to take 2 with plain mucinex for relief of cold symptoms with thick mucus drainage for adults. Realize that Benadryl may cause sedation and should not be used if the individual will be driving or operating machinery. ...Read more
