Can You Take 2 Antihistamines
Yes, if adult: Assuming the Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is 25mg per capsule, it is ok to take 2 with plain Mucinex for relief of cold symptoms with thick mucus drainage for adults. Realize that Benadryl (diphenhydramine) may cause sedation and should not be used if the individual will be driving or operating machinery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See your doctor: If your symptoms are not controlled with a normal dose, you should be evaluated for other causes and treatments. 2nd-generation antihistamines like Claritin (loratadine) are usually very safe, and we sometimes recommend doses higher-than-normal doses for certain conditions. But these conditions are best managed with the help of your doctor--see your doctor before taking more than the recommended dose. ...Read more

Yes, but: Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) is a sedating antihistamine that one should take only in the evening. tetrahydrozoline is a vasoconstrictor (constricts blood vessels), used in eye drops. It should not be used for more than 5 days, because it may cause damage to the lining of the eye (conjunctiva). It is better to use oral fexofenadine or cetirizine and eye drops such as ketotifen, ...Read more

Yes but why: If you take two antihistamines at once you will bring out the less desirable side effects such as drowsiness and dry mouth. There is really no benefit from this and could lead to an overdose if you did this long term. Its best to take one at a time give it a few days to determine if that antihistamine is working and if not change to another. ...Read more
Probably not: It is not a good idea because of the increased risk of side effects from taking multiple similar meds. ...Read more
Yes: Antihistamines are well tolerated even when the dose is doubled. ...Read more
Depends: It could be safe or not depending on the total dose you are taking in one day. By the way safe is conventionally defined, it will probably be safe and it will at most make you a little sleepy and contribute to reduced motor coordination, but in the context of operating a motor vehicle this could make a difference. You may want to see a doctor to get your allergies evaluated medically. Stay safe! ...Read more
Describe allergy: Antihistamines are traditionally used to treat allergic reactions. I am curious as to what exactly what happens to you in response to specific antihistamines: benadryl, (diphenhydramine) zyrtec, Claritin etc. Pepcid is a medication that inhibits acid production by the stomach and would be helpful for treatment of heartburn, indigestion ( dyspepsia ) , gastitis ( stomach inflammation) or reflux of acid ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Probably not: Antihistamines are one of the safest classes of medications and have been available since the 1940s. At usual doses, there is very few side effects and no harm that will come from taking an antihistamine, especially the newer generation ones such as claritin, clarinex, zyrtec, xyzal (levocetirizine) or allegra. ...Read more
Yes: Taking antihistamines with betablockers like propranol is typically very safe. ...Read more
Here are some...: Both Amiodarone and ramipril are used for irregular heart beat and high blood pressure, and antihistamine, theoretically, should not have direct adverse side effects with the above both drugs. But, as we age, our functional reserve declines so becoming more vulnerable to additive effects from multiple drug use. Hence, ask your doc first so to minimize unwanted side effects. ...Read more
Yes: You should be able to take them with you but you might want to check with the airline or a travel agent about peculiar laws the country may have. Any prescriptions you may have, however, will most likely be ok if in a package (bottle/box) with your name and the doctor's name - that would be protected by un charter and the us embassy. Narcotic prescriptions may cause some issues however. ...Read more
Wanting to die: You will sleep and wake up with a very bad hangover and feel no different than you do right now. Nothing will be solved.
