Can I Take Benedryl And Aerius At The Same Time
Antihistamines: They are both antihistamines, so I wouldn't take them together. They both act similarly, so their effect would be too much together. ...Read more
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
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
Melatonin: Unless otherwise advised by your doctor, yes it is safe. ...Read more
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
Yes: Be careful. Both can be sedating. It is however ok to take them together as there is no interaction other than sedation. Do not drive after doing so in order to allow you to monitor any additive sedation. ...Read more

Yes, but: Yes, but why would they? They are both antihistamines and therefore do the same job. ...Read more
Hello docs. I was wondering can you take Claritin and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at the same time?
Preferably no: Claritin should last approximately 24 hours, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) last about 3-4 hours. For usually treatment of allergic rhinitis or general allergy control most people do not need to take both at the same time. There are some circumstances where both may be taken on the same day but you should be followed and directed by an allergist if you are using so much antihistamines to control your symptoms. ...Read more
Yes: No interaction, but exercise caution with multiple drugs ...Read more
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

Can I take codeine cough syrup & Benadryl (diphenhydramine) with Lexapro not at the same time my dry cough from asthma is getting really bad?
Treat asthma: The best way to control a cough from asthma is to treat the asthma and not using cough suppression. You need to see your doctor to get the right medication since I do not see the presence of any asthma control drugs in your profile. Stopping smoking would also be in your best interest. ...Read more

Avoid late eating. Make sleep environment relaxing (no reading, no tv). ...Read more
Can my 8 yr old child who has heart disease take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and Claritin at the same time?
Overdoing It: No. Please do not do this. There is so much evidence in medicine that more is not better. One should not mix medications that are similar in nature unless instructed to do so by a doctor. One does not give a child both Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and Claritin at the same time. ...Read more
