I was curious if benadryl (diphenhydramine) is safe to take with percocets.

I was curious if benadryl (diphenhydramine) is safe to take with percocets.

Careful. Drowsiness.: Both narcotics and traditional antihistamines cause drowsiness and "groginess"; ask your pharmacist or provider for instructions before taking them together; and don't drive. That being said, it is not unusual to see strong (prescription) cough suppressants containing both a narcotic and an antihistamine. Why are you taking both? Perhaps for sleep? Ask for an alternative. ...Read more

Took a benadryl (diphenhydramine) and 1 percocet of 10/325 together. I'm dizzy & sleepy and I just threw up. I had another percocet about 5hrs before that is it overdose?

Took a benadryl (diphenhydramine) and 1 percocet of 10/325 together. I'm dizzy & sleepy and I just threw up. I had another percocet about 5hrs before that is it overdose?

Hard to tell: The dose of Percocet is fairly small, so doubt that it is an overdoses as much as the typical nausea which can accompany opioid uses. The mixing of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and Percocet can be lethal though, and should never be done! Perhaps the elevated dose of the principal metabolite, oxymorphone, twice a strong as oxycodone was the culprit. ...Read more

Can Flagyl cause hypertonicity & limbs/face numbness as side effect? Was also taking Percocet, benedryl, phenergan, (promethazine) synthroid, & klonopin w/no issue.

Can Flagyl cause hypertonicity & limbs/face numbness as side effect? Was also taking Percocet, benedryl, phenergan, (promethazine) synthroid, & klonopin w/no issue.

Rule out alcohol: Flagyl can cause a build up of a toxic substance if taken with alcohol. The alcohol can be consumed or can be assimilated by hand washes, mouth washes, etc. The toxic build up would be my first guess as to the reason for the side effects noted. With a pharmacist or online you can search for known side effects of Flagyl (metronidazole). ...Read more

Claritin versus Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for kids?

Work differently: Claritin in a non-drowsy antihistamine. It doesn't cause sleepiness, but you need to use it every day for it to work really well. It's lousy for severe allergic reactions because it takes days to be fully effective. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) causes drowsiness and only lasts for six hours, but is great for severe allergic reactions and works very quickly. If you're exposed and need help now, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is better. ...Read more
