I took 2 tylenol (acetaminophen) pm 18 hours ago. The box says not to take meds containing diphenhydramine for 24 hours. Is it safe to take clearquil before 24 hrs?

Diphenhydramine: Which qlearquil formulation do you want to use?

Are there any real benefits to herbs/supplements vs some over-the-counter drugs? Ie: melanin vs diphenhydramine, peppermint/catnip vs tylenol (acetaminophen)?

Absolutely: Let's clarify - over-the-counter drugs (otcs) are virtually the same medications as prescription ones except that they've been granted the freedom to be sold without prescription due to their "benign" profile.

Yes: Tylenol (acetaminophen) does not really work that well for migraine and thus Imitrex would likely be far more effective. The earlier the better. Sometimes adding a NSAID may provide added benefits. If nausea prevents you from swallowing Imitrex , ask for a nasal spray version. ...Read more
