There should be no problem taking these two medications together. ...Read more

Is it safe to take ambient and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) tigether?

Is it safe to take ambient and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) tigether?

Check with doc: Both cause sleepiness so combined makes even more so. Both can hurt you if you take too much, alone or together. It also depends on what other meds, drugs/alcohol, caffeine, you're taking & why you need the med in the first place. Good sleep is often obtained through good habits, and enough daily exercise & proper diet, to ensure a sound sleep. I bet a lot of marathon runners were ex-insomniacs! ...Read more

OVER SEDATION: All three Meds cause sedation. Try to space out dosages. Zyrtec& Allegra (fexofenadine) are better for allergies and less sedating. Follow up with your prescribing doctor, if pain is worsening causing insomnia, you may need Meds adjustment. IE gabapentin at bedtime. Or long acting narcotics like Fentanyl patch. ...Read more

Yes, but why: Allegra (fexofenadine) and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) are both antihistamines. Allegra doesn't cross into the brain, so no sedation. Benadryl commonly causes sedation. Typically there is no advantage to taking the 2 together, but also there is no harm at usual doses. ...Read more

Can you take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and Claritin together?

Is it safe to take claritan and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) together?

Yep!: They are both antihistamines, with a difference. Benedryl is sedating, has to be taken 3-4 times a day, and may need to be reserved for bedtime dosing. Claritin (loratadine) is a once-a-day, nonsedating antihistamine, and can be taken any time of day. One common technique for using combination antihistamines for severe symptoms would be morning Claritin (loratadine) and bedtime benedryl. ...Read more

Is it safe to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and melatonin together?

Sleep Better: I agree w dr. Labarbera. Although they can be used together - don't really recommend it. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can lead to rebound insomnia. How about starting w good sleep hygiene. 1. Keep a regular bedtime & wakening time (to include weekends). Get up the same time each day, regardless of what time you fell asleep.
2. Make a regular, relaxing bedtime routine. Relaxing rituals prior to bedtime may include. ...Read more

Is it safe to take loratadine and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) together?

Is it safe to take loratadine and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) together?

Depends: They are both in the same family (antihistamines), but a few people have daytime symptoms so take non-sedating med (like loratadine) and its effect wears off before next day's dose, so take a sedating (/older) antihistamine (like benadryl) at bedtime for continued relief and to aid with sleep. If no heart / urinary / blood pressure issues and no other meds to conflict with, not likely a problem. ...Read more

Can I take Benadryl (diphenhydramine), valerian and melatonin together every day?

Can I take Benadryl (diphenhydramine), valerian and melatonin together every day?

Thoughts..: Valerian, has the possibility of causing some drowsiness, so I would be careful when taking that with benadryl, (diphenhydramine) which can also cause drowsiness. If someone's been taking it for a long time and they haven't had any significant reactions then it's probably okay. But like almost all the supplements out there, they haven't been rigorously tested for safety and interactions so it's buyer beware. ...Read more

Is it dangerous to take valuim 20mg and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 50mg together? I have high tolerence

I'd avoid it: Dangerous is different to different folk. I'd certainly hope you'd not drive or do anything requiring alertness, judgement, steadiness, etc. I would avoid it. But the medications you already list are already risky for those reasons in combination. Talk w/ your provider. Don't drive unless ABSOLUTELY unavoidable. Be careful. ...Read more

The dr prescribed me tussonex for my cough...She also told me to get some sleep tonight to take a benadryl (diphenhydramine)....Is it ok to take together?

Yes but: Tussionex often makes one drowsy without anything else. I would suggest that you try tussionex alone for the first night before adding benadryl (diphenhydramine). At any rate, this should not be a long-term treatment. ...Read more
