Diphenhydramine Citrate Vs Hcl
Is it safe to take 10 mg melatonin and 50 mg diphenhydramine HCl an hour before bed almost every night? I have trouble getting to sleep most nights.
What For?: More info is needed to decide proper dose and if this is the medicine for whatever the problem is.
What are the dosage differences in diphenhydramine HCl and citrate if I take 50mg of HCl for sleep would I take 76 mg of citrate?
No: It shouldn't show up in a home screening test.
I've been taking about 500 to 1400mg of OTC diphenhydramine hcl daily for about the last 6-8 years and have stopped. How can I stop the ITCHING!!?
Find out the cause: Consider consulting a dermatologist if the itching has been going on for 6-8 years. A dermatologist can help you sort out the cause or devise a treatment program which can help control the itching. On the other hand, if high doses of antihistamine controls the itching without side effects for several years, you may continue taking it.
Been taking diphenhydramine HCL for about 10 years in high doses. I have recently stopped taking them. The itching is intense. HOW CAN I STOP THE ITCH?
Yes: These medicines have different mechanism of action and that is not a problem. Discuss this with your physician if there's any other medical issues we are not aware of.
What side effects come from taking 1000mg of diphenhydramine HCL daily for 8 years? And how can I stop the itching after I've stopped taking them?
You need help: I hope you meant 100mg. If you're really taking 40 capsules of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) a day, and even if you're only taking 4 capsules a day, you need to see a board certified allergist for help. Even if the underlying cause of the itching can't be found, there are better ways to control it
No: No problem.Get a more detailed answer ›
Diphendydramine: Diphenhydramine would likely work better but make make you drowsy.
Should not: Both are antihistamines so you do not need to take both.See 1 more doctor answer
I have severe allergies. I believe they are indoor and outdoor. I have tried claritiin 10 mg otc and benadryl (diphenhydramine) hcl 25mg and gotten some temporary relie?
Nasal: Consider adding some nasal steroid spray which you can get over the counter
150 mg Diphenhydramine hcl (3 Unisom Sleepgels) hasn't helped me sleep. Is it safe to bump it up to 200 mg?
Won't advise it: It will not kill you but may cause other side effects yet unlikely to help you to fall asleep by taking another 50 mg.
Mixing diphenhydramine HCL (50mg) with oxycodone (30mg)? Due to an accident, chronic, severe, pain does not let me sleep.......
