I have a migraine that won't go away. I have vomited 8 times so far and i see double. I have tried OTC migraine medicines and benadryl (diphenhydramine). Is there anything else that i can try?
Rule out ICB: For a persistent headache associated with nausea and resistant to medications, you should get a head ct in the emergency room/department. This could be an intracranial bleed. These are usually associated with trauma, but I have seen some spontaneous icb's. If the head ct is negative, follow up with your physician to get stronger migraine medication and maybe a migraine controller medication. ...Read more
Yes, but...: Yes, they can potentially have an additive effect on headache relief, BUT your chancing potentially increasing the potential for sedation.

I have had a migraine since last night. I just found out I'm pregnant two days ago. Is it safe to take benadryl to take the edge off from the pain.
Went to ER for migraine was given raglan and Benadryl (diphenhydramine). It did help but 12 hours later I'm still really really tired how long will that last?
Does Benadryl (diphenhydramine) share any of the anti-serotoninergic effects that periactin has? Or is a sert inhibitor the opposite? Having seritonin migraine..
Neither..4 most part:
Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is an antihistamine. As a potent antagonist to acetylcholine in muscarinic receptors, Diphenhydramine is used to treat parkinson's disease-like extrapyramidal symptoms caused by typical antipsychotics.
It haslso been shown to weakly inhibit the reuptake of serotonin. ...Read more
Can I take a sleeping pill (diphenhydramine) to help me sleep after taking excedrine migraine? Thanks in advance.
NOT USUALLY: I am not fully aware of any connection between Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and migraine, other than a relationship btwn allergic rhinitis in migraine sufferers and then ingestion of antihistamines for relief. Most meds seem to be associated with headaches due to frequency of headaches, and perhaps this explains some of the data. ...Read more
Doesn't work well: However, might help you fall asleep which secondarily could end that migraine attack. Aleve (naproxen) seems to work better, but you need about 375 to 500 mg total. You could take aleve (naproxen) thrice daily, which might prevent migraine attacks, but could upset your stomach. Maybe try riboflavin, vitamin b-2 as another preventative. ...Read more
10mgs a day amitriptyline for migraines. Is it ok to skip a day occas? Is missing a dose dangerous? What if i feel overly sedated from Benadryl (diphenhydramine) once?
Soon starting amitriptyline 10mg for migraine. Also frequently use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for allergies. Safe if taken a few hrs apart?
Yes, if prescribed: This low dose of amitriptylene may help prevent migraines, but may have some sedation & constipation with it. Best to take it at night. You might consider other, newer options for allergies that aren't as sedating as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) -- especially when added to amitriptylene. Discuss with your doctor, who knows you best.. ...Read more
I was given a coctail of toritol benedryl and something else for severe migraine in er along with 3 prednisone. I was prescribed roboxin 500mg 3x a day 2 pills at a time. after i urinate my lips feel numb or tingly. What is going on??
Too many drugs: With so many new drugs it is hard to tell which or which combination may or may not be causing your symptoms. I can't link the urination to the lip sensation either. It is best that you consult a neurologist specialized in migraine. Have you tried triptan type of drugs yet for migraine? ...Read more

Rarely.: In people who have congenital LQTS, benadryl can cause heart arrythmias by making their underlying problem worse. In people with normal QT, very large doses or overdoses of benadryl can prolong the QT and have serious or fatal consequences. Bendaryl is a medicine to avoid if you have LQTS, and only one of many factors to consider if you have the acquired version. Speak to a cardiologist. ...Read more
Simple Care: Sunburn is response of the tissues to injury from solar radiation. It is simply inflammation which means increase blood flow to the area to promote healing. Do not use ice as this can injure already injured skin. Cool water soaks can help as can taking anti-inflammation medicines like Motrin or advil (ibuprofen). Avoid any further damage as this can cause scarring . Good skin cream applied daily/gently helps. ...Read more
Time For DroolSchool: We here on the ranch call it"Benadrool"because it can shlog you out.So yes sometimes it can work for calming down.
