Can you take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and hydrocodine at the same time?

Can you take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and hydrocodine at the same time?

Be careful: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can be used with hydrocodone to decrease itching and nausea that sometimes happens with hydrocodone. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and hydorocodone, however, are both sedating and together cause additive drowsiness. Also both drugs independently can cause constipation and urinary hesitancy, so taken together these problems also can be worse. Be careful and discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

Can you take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and NyQuil at the same time?

Not best idea: Nyquil has an antihistamine in it already, and benadryl (diphenhydramine) is an antihistamine so you run the risk of overdosing on the antihistamine component. This may cause drowsiness, dryness and can possibly effect respiratory drive. So, not a good idea to take both together. ...Read more

What will happen if you take three Benadryl (diphenhydramine) liqui gels at the same time?

What will happen if you take three Benadryl (diphenhydramine) liqui gels at the same time?

BENADRYL (diphenhydramine): Each capsule contains 25 mg of Diphenhydramine (benadryl (diphenhydramine)). 75 mg of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) exceeds the normal maximum dose of 50 mg. I would not recommend exceeding 50 mg. The risk is extreme dressiness and perhaps difficulty in functioning. If you are taking other medications that may cause dressiness, the effect will be magnified by also taking 75 mg of benadryl (diphenhydramine). Do not exceed 50 mg for any one dose. ...Read more

Hello docs. I was wondering can you take Claritin and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at the same time?

Cough medicines: Alka seltzer plus has I believe Acetaminophen and phenylephrine in it which is a decongestant but not an antihistamine. It also has dextromethorphan cough suppressant. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is an antihistamine. So yes you can take them together of added effect on sinus and nasal congestion. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can make you sleepy. ...Read more
