Would 2 pills of tylenol, 1 tramadol, 2 advil, 1 oxycodone, 4 benadryl, 3 midnite sleep aid and 2 melatonin be bad or just put me to sleep for awhile?

YES - DANGEROUS!: This is way too much medication to take all at once, and could put you in grave danger - including potential liver/kidney damage, or worse - death. If you are having trouble sleeping, then talk to your doctor about this, and they can work on establishing an effective treatment plan. Work on your stress factors. Eliminate caffeinated beverages before bed. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can I take 75mg of Diphenhydramine HCI?

Can I take 75mg of Diphenhydramine HCI?

Probably but why?: Adult dosing is 25-50 mg every 4-6 hours as needed. Maximum dosing is listed as 100mg per dose up to a total of 300 to 400mg per day. I'm just wondering your reason for taking 75mg, as this medicine is sedating, and can make you sleepy. If the 25-50 mg isn't strong enough, maybe there's something else better for you to try. Discuss this with your doctor, who might have a better suggestion for you. ...Read more
