Can I Take Benadryl With Renitidine
Was wondering if it was safe to mix ranitidine and benadryl together and give to my one year old like that?
Hives for 4 days I hve perscribed meds hydroxyzine 25mg, diphenhydramine 25 mg, Ranitidine hydrochloride 150 mg & cetirizine 10mg .. Wat should I use?
That's a lot: Cetirizine taken every day helps reduce frequency/severity of hives outbreaks. Hydroxyzine reduces itching immediately but also is potently sedating so is best used at bedtime only when needed. Diphenhydramine is similar to hydroxyzine but less effective (also less sedating) and can be used for as-needed daytime use. Ranitidine may complement cetirizine for some people with very severe symptoms. ...Read more
Diphenhydramine, prednisone, ranitidine are given to my dad before he does his cardiac cath.. Is those going to help him not be allergic to iodine ?
Allergy: Iodine is not the problem. Has he ever ingested "iodized" salt? If so, he is not iodine allergic. The IV contrast used in the cath is a spontaneous mast cell degranulator that causes the allergic reaction. We suppress this with those three meds prior to IV contrast to prevent reactions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Doses?: Depends on the dose of Benadryl. If you have insomnia, sleep hygiene is an often overlooked, yet more effective treatment, than medications.

Do not drive/operate heavy machinery under their influence. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
