I am taking prednisone for an allergic reaction to azithromycin. Can I take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) before I sleep? Will it help with this kind of allergic reaction?

If you want a sleeping pill, use Benadryl (diphenhydramine). DO NOT TAKE BENADRYL (diphenhydramine) IF YOU DRIVE. It is dangerous to be sleepy and drive. If you have a rash, not hives, no antihistamine will make the slightest difference. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What can I do for an allergic reaction to lignocaine? Is Benadryl (diphenhydramine) safe to use for the reaction?

IM Benadryl (diphenhydramine) gives you perhaps a 30-minute head start vs oral = not worth the cost or hassle.

I have true allergy to Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (had hives when taking the dye-free for a headache.) is allegra safe for me? And would it help my allergic reactions?

Whether Allegra would work for you or not is another issue but it should be no less effective than benadryl (diphenhydramine). ...Read more
