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.

Do Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and Adderall interact with each other?

Do Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and Adderall interact with each other?

Drug interactions.: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can be sedating (typically) or stimulating (unusual) . When a reaction occurs opposite to what is typically experienced, it is called a paradoxical reaction. A pharmacist can run a drug interaction screen for you and this is why it is wise to get all of your medications from a single source. Decongestants are stimulants and often used in combination with Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and could be a bad mix. ...Read more

They work well...: Every patient is different with respect to the best combination of anti-nausea medicines that works for them. We tailor an anti-nausea regimen based on the patient and what chemotherapy they are receiving.

Hypersensitivity to meds, kids dose of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) too much. Took 5mg Celexa for anxiety- bad heightened anxiety, stopped. Any meds with less s.effects?

Hypersensitivity to meds, kids dose of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) too much. Took 5mg Celexa for anxiety- bad heightened anxiety, stopped. Any meds with less s.effects?

Possible: Each child can respond differently to meds. Sometimes it's hit or miss until u find the right one. Ask your MD for MillineumPGT saliva test - genitic test to see what meds have higher potential side effects. Ask about buspar (buspirone) if mild anxiety. Try chamomile calming teas twice a day with melatonin at night. May consider visit with therapist to learn anxiety relaxation exercises. Good luck! ...Read more

Any dangers of overdosing on allegra (fexofenadine)?

Possibly: Allegra (fexofenadine) has been studied at very high doses with no clinically significant adverse events. However, if a high enough dose is taken there may be adverse effects. I would be most concerned about potential cardiac arrhythmias at very very high doses. ...Read more

Are there any interactions between diphenhydramine and l-theamine? Can both be taken together safely in recommended amounts for sleep?

Are there any interactions between diphenhydramine and l-theamine? Can both be taken together safely in recommended amounts for sleep?

No: I am not sure what l-theanine is. However, the only dietary supplements/herbals i know of which should be avoided when taking Diphenhydramine are valerian, st. John's wort, kava kava, and gotu kola; as the combination may enhance CNS depression. I am doubtful that whatever l-theanine is will compound any sedative effects you may experience with Diphenhydramine alone. ...Read more

Adderall, tylenol, (acetaminophen) and generic unisom sleep tabs are ok to all be taken together?

Adderall, tylenol, (acetaminophen) and generic unisom sleep tabs are ok to all be taken together?

Yes, But Why?: Medically, there should not be an issue with taking these at normal doses. However, i would be puzzled as to why you would take this combination together, especially the unisom and adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is likely to make it more difficult for you to fall asleep, which would counteract the use of unisom. ...Read more
