Can You Take Ativan And Benadryl Together
Should be ok if...: If a person had no problems taking meloxicam (Mobic) in the past for some medical condition, and separately had no problem taking diphenhydramine (Benadryl) in the past, then she should be ok taking the medications at the same time. If worried, she can ask her doctor who prescribed the meloxicam. Benadryl does cause drowsiness, so can be unsafe for certain activities such as driving or piloting. ...Read more
Probably: These medications are both in the same class and may potentiate one another. If your doctor has prescribed both then s/he has probably already considered this possible interaction. It would not hurt to call and ask. ...Read more

Benzos and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) : First i need to question doses of xanax and valium and why you are taking 2 different benzodiazepines. Most people do not realize xanax is about 10x more potent than valium. So i don't see 25mg of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) as the primary issue. Do u have 2 different practitioners rx benzos? If so have only 1 captain running your ship & rxing meds. Discuss this with your rxing practitioner. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can cause sedation.: In addition to acetaminophen, Naproxen or ibuprofen, midol contains pyrilamine which is an anti-histamine. It can cause drowsiness and dizziness which is compounded by ativan (lorazepam). I would advise you to use caution when using both, see how your body reacts, and separate the doses out as much as possible if needed. ...Read more
2 antihistamines: At usual doses, there should not be significant side effects from taking these 2 antihistamines together. If a person is needing this much for relief, consider seeing an allergist for an evaluation. ...Read more

Talk to your doctor : This combination of medication at the dose you mentioned is not fatal as long as you are not allergic to either medicine. They do have an additive sedating effect.

Sedation: Always discuss with your prescribing provider. These medications can used together with one caveat- taking Ativan and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) together may cause sedation. So, if you need to be awake in the middle of the day that could be a problem. Don't operate dangerous machinery or drive a vehicle if sedated. ...Read more
10 year old given Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to help with sleep when anxious. If it doesn't work can they take prescribed 1 mg of Ativan?
I am on Eliquis. This morning (17 hours ago), I took Lexapro 10 mg. Tonight, I took 2 extra strength Tylenol and 2 Benadryl. Can I take an Ativan too?
Yes: Ativan does not interfere with the medications you took. But the combination of Benadryl and Ativan may make you feel extra drowsy and dizzy. It’s a good idea to make sure you take these before bed (as opposed to before any activity that requires coordination, like driving / operating heavy machinery, which could pose a danger to others) the first time so that you get a sense of how you react. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
10 year old took 25 mg of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) then 1-2 hours later took 1 mg of Ativan prescribed for anxiety. could this interaction be fatal?
I took 3 20mg tablets of prednisone ended up in the er about 2 hrs after(im allergic) gave 2 shots benadryl (diphenhydramine) & ativan how long til Pred.out of system?
Unlikely allergic: I presume your reactions were from the prednisone which may cause hyperactivity, depression, anxiety, insomnia, palpitation, flushing occasionally in a few people when given at this dose. I would expect these side effects to decline after about a day and subside altogether in 2-3 days. The problem may also be from the disease for which the prednisone was prescribed. Not allergic ...Read more
Of three anti-emetics (ativan, benadryl, (diphenhydramine) and zofran) used on a pediatric oncology floor, why is ativan used?
It works for some: Each of the three drugs you listed work by targeting a different mechanism to help battle chemotherapy-induced nausea. It is not uncommon for a patient to require a schedule of all three, depending on the chemo being administered and the individual patient. Ativan can help with anxiety, but it is also an anti-emetic. Reglan (metoclopramide) is also commonly given with Benadryl to help fight nausea. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Sleep: Since you have tried many medications for sleep it may be useful to change your lifestyle if you have not already. Daily exercise before 3pm, no caffeine after 3pm, no alcohol in the evening. If these methods do not work consult with a clinical psychologist who can help uncover the difficulties preventing sleep and how to develop better coping skills. My best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have an ativan habit because I cant sleep at night. I am taking invega sustenna, (paliperidone palmitate) benadryl, geodon 80mg, and cogentin. Im trying to rid of ativan?
Ativan (lorazepam): Ativan (lorazepam) is not indicated for treatment of insomnia. It produces tolerance and dependence when used long-term. Long-term treatment with medication alone is not the optimal treatment strategy. Any abrupt or overly rapid reduction in Ativan (lorazepam) dose among chronic users can produce withdrawal. Symptoms and signs can include tremors, anxiety, perceptual disturbances, dysphoria, psychosis, and seizures. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Caution....: Please keep in mind that taking medications that cause drowsiness, such as Ativan, a benzodiazepine, and Atarax, (hydroxyzine) an antihistiamine, can exacerbate the drowsiness and can lead to sedation. These side effects impair one's ability to execute functions such as driving or operating machinery. Recommending discussing with your doctor first and getting clearance. Hope this is helpful. All the best. ...Read more
