I took 2 Excedrin tension pills. Can I take 2 Benadryl (diphenhydramine) sinus headache on top of that?
Headache: I would suggest waiting 3-4 hours before taking anything else as you may over dose on contents such as acetaminophen (Tylenol), aspirin, and caffeine. It looks like you also take Vicodin which may further complicate matters. Since you have a history of "migraine" I would strongly recommend consulting a neurologist to help you manage your headaches. Avoid self medicating. ...Read more

Maybe (not). . .: Hyland's is a brand of homeopathic remedies (http://www. Hylands.

I've been giving my 5mo old benadryl (diphenhydramine) for allergies per his dr. But it has turned into a full cold. Is there anything I can give himbefore going to dr?
No: If a baby has a runny nose or a stuffy nose, that can happen with a cold. Babies get colds, sometimes often. That makes it hard to call it "allergies", if the baby has just nasal symptoms. Meaning, it's hard to tell if a baby with sniffles has "allergies" instead of a cold. Also, it's hard to tell if Benadryl (diphenhydramine) helps at such a young age, for nasal symptoms. His pediatrician can evaluate. ...Read more
