Is It Okay To Mix Benadryl With My Other Medications
Avoid these: Older antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) interact with many drugs. Don't mix it with alcohol, sleeping pills, sedatives, antidepressants, potassium supplements, sodium or potassium phosphate, antipsychotics, MAO inhibitors, symlin (pramlintide), sodium oxybate, Precedex (dexmedetomidine) & abilify (aripiprazole). Loratidine and fexofenadine are as effective & much safer. Discuss this with your doctor.See 1 more doctor answer

Ok short term: Benadryl is an antihistamine that makes some people sleepy. However, other people may become hyper alert on benadryl. Taking tylenol (acetaminophen) at the same time will not cause harm if taking recommended dosage on package. See your md to discuss how to better handle your "worries" if they are daily and causing you to lose sleep every night.
Is it okay to mix ambien and benadyrl to treat insomnia? I took benadryl (diphenhydramine) around 4hrs after taking ambien bc it didn't work, are there side effects?
No don't mix drugs: Please don't mix ambien with benadryl (diphenhydramine). I would first suggest you speak with your doctor who prescribed you ambien and him/her that you are still experiencing insomnia. Mixing prescription medication with drugs like benadryl (diphenhydramine) can be dangerous. Perhaps you should improve your sleep hygiene first. Sleep same time every night, bed is used only for sleep, cool dark room, no distractions (TV) etc.See 1 more doctor answer
I ate a grapefruit without thinking about an hour after taking a Benadryl pill. I know grapefruit can affect some medications will this be okay?
Yes: It mildly slows the breakdown of the benadryl. Just wait a few hours longer than usual before taking another
Watch carefully: The combo can increase dizziness and drowsiness. Don't drive or do things that require clarity until you see how it affects you. Also, watch out for long term Valium use as it is addictive and intended for specific events - not regular everyday life. Also, your Benadryl (diphenhydramine) dose is fairly high unless spread throughout the day. Talk to your doctor about each issue. Be careful - be well.

Can you take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) if you are taking other types of medication for allergies?

Can a person be truly allergic to benadryl (diphenhydramine)? (not to the die but the drug itself) if so can desensitization work?
Diphenhydramine: Allergy to the active component can occur, very rare though, desensitazation can be performed but why? Desensitazation is resorted to for any any drug if it is the only drug available to treat certain condition and no available alternatives, which isn't the case with diphenhydramine, get a second opinion, take care
