Doctor insights on:
Am I able to take Benadryl with the medications I currently am taking? Fluoxetine 40mg/1day. Clonazepam/1 day.
Trazadone at night for sleep
All the meds you list cause sedation. Benadryl at bedtime causes sedation as well. If you can't fall asleep may need reevaluation or sleep testing at the lab.
Too many drugs interactions can be dangerous and you might not wake up. See a physician for expert advice when combining controlled and sedative meds. If you have sleep apnea none of the above will cure it. Oxygen is the answer. ...Read more
I've been trying to get pregnant and I am currently taking Zantac(acid reflux) and Benadryl. Could these medications keep me from conceiving? Thanks!
Possibly: Ranitidine has not been known to cause any problems with fertility or pregnancy, however diphenhydramine/Benadryl and other antihistamines theoretically can affect the implantation of the egg in the womb by decreasing bloodflow to the uterus. It is still debatable, (and there aren't any good studies on the subject), but it might be good to stop taking benadryl unless you REALLY need it. ...Read more
Do anticholinergic medications like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) have a link with mild cognitive impairment?
I ate a grapefruit without thinking about an hour after taking a Benadryl pill. I know grapefruit can affect some medications will this be okay?
Avoid these: Older antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) interact with many drugs. Don't mix it with alcohol, sleeping pills, sedatives, antidepressants, potassium supplements, sodium or potassium phosphate, antipsychotics, MAO inhibitors, symlin (pramlintide), sodium oxybate, Precedex (dexmedetomidine) & abilify (aripiprazole). Loratidine and fexofenadine are as effective & much safer. Discuss this with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

All could be: If you look at the possible side effect profile for each of the drugs you mentioned, high blood pressure is listed as a possible side effect for each one. Side effect profiles for drugs are very patient dependent and very hard to predict. Sometimes starting and stopping medications in an orderly fashion can determine if one is causing the undesired side effect. Talk with your doc. ...Read more
I have red patches all over my body they itch.I went to the hospital and the gave me benadryl, (diphenhydramine) prednisone, &cimetidine these medications did nothing!?
Foolish: ER people treat heart attacks, accidents, emergencies. That's why we call it the emergency room. They are poor at treating "red patches all over". What did they call it? Stop this foolishness and see a dermatologist. When you call, indicate if it is urgent. Is your water safe yet? Do not take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) except bedtime. It is a sleeping pill. Cimetidine is for acid stomach, not for skin. You need a p ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you take 5 mg of Vicodin and 25 mg of Benadryl together? I weigh 113 pounds and I'm a female. I have an ovarian cyst and I hardly ever take pain medications so I'm a little afraid and my allergies are killing me.
Nasal steroid?: Whether you can take these medications depend greatly on their adverse effects . Both Benadryl and Vicodin have sedating effect and Vicodin may cause abdominal upset for some people. However if the pain is bad, you may have little choice. If you are referring to nasal congestion, a nasal steroid will likely work better than an antihistamine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sleep: Since you have tried many medications for sleep it may be useful to change your lifestyle if you have not already. Daily exercise before 3pm, no caffeine after 3pm, no alcohol in the evening. If these methods do not work consult with a clinical psychologist who can help uncover the difficulties preventing sleep and how to develop better coping skills. My best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Will benadryl (diphenhydramine) have an effect on a methacholine challenge since its a anticholinergic drug?
