I'm currently taking Allegra-D 24hr daily, can I also take the occasional Diphenhydramine? I mainly would use the Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for sedative effects.

Yes: You can do that occasionally, don't exceed dosage, mind you allegra-D can deprive from sleep, so don't take it in the pm period, and be cautious with diphenhydramine if you drive, take care ...Read more

I'm currently on amiloride hydrochloride, hydrochlorothiazide..and have taken Walgreen's Cough DM. What types of adverse reactions should I expect?

I'm currently on amiloride hydrochloride, hydrochlorothiazide..and have taken Walgreen's Cough DM.  What types of adverse reactions should I expect?

Here are some...: Theoretically, taking dextromethophen-containing cough syrup should not affect the two kinds of water pills you are on. DM itself may induce drowsiness in some, but directly related with these two water pills. Nonetheless, read the precaution labeling and follow. If any doubt during drug use, stop it. More? Ask your doctor timely. ...Read more

I take Sertraline HCL 50 MG and Trazodone 150 MG Is it ok to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) allergy liqui-Gels 25 MG with the other meds?

I take Sertraline HCL 50 MG and Trazodone 150 MG Is it ok to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) allergy liqui-Gels 25 MG with the other meds?

For what?: All meds have potential adverse effects and the more meds you are on increases this risk. Both sertraline and trazodone are antidepressants, but you are likely taking trazodone for sleep and these 2 are not an uncommon combo. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is also sedating. If you need Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for allergies talk to your doc about tapering down trazodone. Also consider seeing an allergist ...Read more

Please tell any over-the-counter syrup available for kids having pseudoephedrine hydrochloride, chlorphenamine maleate, acetaminophen?

Please tell any over-the-counter syrup available for kids having 
pseudoephedrine hydrochloride, chlorphenamine maleate, acetaminophen?

I do not think so: If you are asking for a single medication that is available otc with all 3 ingredients, I am not aware of any. You can find some that have the Pseudoephedrine and the chlorpheniramine but not the acetaminophen. I believe advil (ibuprofen) allergy sinus is close having Ibuprofen instead of the Acetaminophen in pill form. That said, cold medications are not recommended for children less than 4 years of age. ...Read more

Dexchloropheniramine maleate tablets have 2mg; chlorpheniramine maleate tablets had 4mg. Dex isomer's more potent? Or ploy to sell more tablets?

Tab difference: hello ~ dex~etc is a totally different substance to chlorphen~etc base. Each compound in organic chem has completely different properties, by adding free radicals (-H, -OH, -S03,-S04,-NH3,NH4) This is not a scam but dose equivalents. Do not mess with dose advised on label ! Take AS DIRECTED ! ALWAYS ! ...Read more

Why hasn't viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) taken off as the new branded blockbuster drug..Such as lexapro, cymbalta etc./is it about side effects-effectiveness-insurance cov.

Why hasn't viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) taken off as the new branded blockbuster drug..Such as lexapro, cymbalta etc./is it about side effects-effectiveness-insurance cov.

Slow marketing: I believe the reason has been somewhat slow marketing and releasing it before proving that it also has effectiveness in anxiety as well. Some of the initial side effects needs to be overcome by taking the initial starter packet and using two of them instead of one so that the upward taper occurs less aggressively. The harder it is to get patient and physician compliance, the harder it is to sell. ...Read more

Yes: They are both antihistamines but the chlorpheniramine is a broad spectrum sedating one and cetirizine is a narrow non-sedating one. They are meant to do the same thing but depends on why you are taking it. ...Read more
