Yes you can: Yes you can occasionally take Benadryl especially at night with Claritin if Claritin alone is not helping your symptoms but i will not recommend taking it for long periods and 3to 4 times a day of benadryl most of the time try to take one or the other if it works for you or consult your doctor or an allergist. ...Read more
Question I took 2 generic Claritin this afternoon at about 4pm. I had a little reaction to something and took 1 Benadryl at about 8pm will I be ok?
More Details: Need more details on what kind of symptoms this reaction entailed, the time course, and to what potential trigger. Was it a food or a medication? Suggest consulting an Allergist if you are concerned about an allergic reaction so that further workup and testing can be performed. ...Read more
Maybe, maybe not: These are both antihistamines, just different generation, zyrtec being the younger one. Being allergic to Benadryl is not necessarily meant allergic to zyrtec as well. At times, people misunderstand intolerance vs allergic--people are more often intolerant than allergic. If symptom is mild, she can try zyrtec. If severe, i would consult doc first for eval. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Im on drug court and i want to take a sleep aid because i can't sleep I have a generic sleep aid but it has diphenhydramine hci in it will this make me test positive for anything or will it be ok to take it
The : The answer dr. Johnson provided is correct. There are reports that with very high doses, Diphenhydramine has in rare cases, led to false positive drug screening for benzodiazapines. However, if this were to occur, normally the sample would be retested using a more precise test and that would clear up the confusion. It is reported that it could also trigger a false positive for pcp (but this is also very rare). Diphenhydramine is not a good choice for chronic problems with sleep. If you are in a program that requires drug testing, you might consider skipping the Diphenhydramine and working on sleep hygiene first. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Doses?: Depends on the dose of Benadryl. If you have insomnia, sleep hygiene is an often overlooked, yet more effective treatment, than medications. In addition, the combination of medications could impair decision making, cause undesired drowsiness, and other side effects. Speak with your doctor, before taking any combination of medications. Do not drive/operate heavy machinery under their influence. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, if adult: Assuming the Benadryl is 25mg per capsule, it is ok to take 2 with plain mucinex for relief of cold symptoms with thick mucus drainage for adults. Realize that Benadryl may cause sedation and should not be used if the individual will be driving or operating machinery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
