Is it safe to take gravol, dramamine (dimenhydrinate) to help sleep?

Is it safe to take gravol, dramamine (dimenhydrinate) to help sleep?

Not recommended: Gravol is a combination of diphenhydramine, a sedating antihistamine, and chlorotheophylline, a mild stimulant, which is added to counteract the sleep-inducing effects and allow use during the day as an anti-nausea treatment. Because of this, it's not very effective for insomnia, and may actually have the opposite effect, disturbing sleep later in the night.

Question is can I take dramamine (dimenhydrinate) before I drink without side-effects?

Question is can I take dramamine (dimenhydrinate) before I drink without side-effects?

Sailor's answer: no: The drug often does not mix well with alcohol as the side-effects (s/e) of both the rx and the alcohol are magnified. The common s/e of dramamine (dimenhydrinate) are the three ds: dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth. There are many other side-effects listed including severe allergic reactions and even death but I believe the three ds are the most common s/e. Look up the drug and precautions on drugs. Com.

Please advise if it's bad to take dramamine (dimenhydrinate) less drowsy 25mg and 10 mg of zzzquil?

Depending on your problem, you should choose one or the other...Dramamine (dimenhydrinate) for motion sickness (less commonly just for insomnia) or zzzquil for sleep and cold symptoms. Hope you feel better soon.

No problem reports: This is not a risky combo - but take each only as directed. Also consider ways to manage your anxiety in a broader way. Meditation, yoga, CBT therapy and many life style adjustment may reduce your need and frequency for a pill. Relax and take care!

Is it ok to take a dramamine with half a xanax (alprazolam). 0.25 is the Xanax (alprazolam) dose but I take half of one.

Is it ok to take a dramamine with half a xanax (alprazolam). 0.25 is the Xanax (alprazolam) dose but I take half of one.

Yes: I believe the dose of xanax (alprazolam) that you are taking is so low that I am not sure it is even therapeutic. The dose of dramamine you should take is 12.5 mgm. Dramamine (meclizine) over the counter is usually 25 mgm. So do not drive if you take both of these drugs. In short, I believe you can take both drugs if you take the lower dose of dramamine (12.5 mgm.).

Yes: Dramamine (dimenhydrinate) is generally a safe medication by itself but when you combine it with other anti histamine like Alavert (Claritin) you should be mindful of symptom of drowsiness. While driving that may be an issue if you are behind the wheel.

Is there anything besides dramamine (dimenhydrinate) I can take for air sickness? Flying-or more specifically, the descent-always makes me nauseous.

Many options: 1. Consider ginger 500 mg-1, 000 mg before flight. 2. Prescription antinausea medicine zofran (ondansetron) works well and does not cause drowsiness. 3. Scopolamine patches are a bit drastic (last 72 hours unless removed) but do work 3. Minimize air sickness: sit over wings on plane for smoothest ride, eat lightly, avoid alcohol, avoid reading, keep eyes closed and meditate or listen to music.
