Can I Take Ambien And Benadryl Together
Dual diagnosis: I recommend not taking ambien (zolpidem) and suboxone. Withdrawal and insomnia is part of the process of withdrawal.

Can i take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) after already taking 74 teva, i took the ambien/ zopiltium or however you spell it an hour ago and am not tired...?
Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for sleep: Generally a small amount of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for sleep is benign. However you indicate you took "71 teva", i presume you mean teva 74 imprint (which is ambien/zolpitem 10mg). If that is all you took and are age 26, i would say you can take 50-75mg Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to help you fall asleep if there are no other factors that would contra-indicate it. Talk to the md who prescribes you Ambien about your sleep problem. ...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.

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
Not at all: Ambien is a prescription only sleep aid which works directly on the brain to reduce electrical activity thereby causing sleep. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) which is used for treatment of allergies causes sleep as a side effect by working on different than Ambien brain receptors called H1. Consult with a physician if you need to take sleep aids on a regular basis. ...Read more
