Yes, but: Higher doses of melatonin can actually interfere with normal sleep. Take 0.3 to 1 mg. 90 minutes before intended sleep and see how you do. There is a possible additive effect with your other meds that also can have sedative effects., . ...Read more

I take Sertraline HCL 50 MG and Trazodone 150 MG Is it ok to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) allergy liqui-Gels 25 MG with the other meds?

I take Sertraline HCL 50 MG and Trazodone 150 MG Is it ok to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) allergy liqui-Gels 25 MG with the other meds?

For what?: All meds have potential adverse effects and the more meds you are on increases this risk. Both sertraline and trazodone are antidepressants, but you are likely taking trazodone for sleep and these 2 are not an uncommon combo. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is also sedating. If you need Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for allergies talk to your doc about tapering down trazodone. Also consider seeing an allergist ...Read more

Can you explain if it's safe to mix nyquil (acetaminophen 325 mg- dmx 15 mg and doxylamine 6.25 mg) with 3 benedryls (25 mg)?

Can you explain if it's safe to mix nyquil (acetaminophen 325 mg- dmx 15 mg and doxylamine 6.25 mg) with 3 benedryls (25 mg)?

Wouldn't suggest it.: Nyquil is a very sedating medication. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is also quite sedating - especially taking 75mg's. The two together in my opinion will be too sedating and possibly dangerous. ...Read more

Is it ok to take them hours apart 600mg ibuprofen, 5 mg flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) and acetaminophen codeine # 3?

Ibuprofen 600 mgmcan be taken every 6to8 hours not to exceed three times a day as long as you have no problem with your stomach like ulcer or reflux or gastritis and if you get any stomach complaints stop it and do not take longer then 5to7 days Acetam/codein can be taken every 4 hours Flexeril three times a day ...Read more

Can you take 75 mg diphenhydramine HCl (tylenol (acetaminophen) simply sleep) with .5 mg diazepam (valium)?

Can you take 75 mg diphenhydramine HCl (tylenol (acetaminophen) simply sleep) with .5 mg diazepam (valium)?

Probably: I think you mean 5 mg of diazepam, not .5. 75 mg of diphenydramine is a bit high. Tegether, they synergize for additional sedation. Alone, it is probably not enough to be a problem, but if combined with other sedating agents or alcohol, you would be taking a risk, possibly a serious one. ...Read more

Is tylenol (acetaminophen) weight dependant like ibuprofen? I'm 350 lbs. Ibuprofen was prescibed 6-800 mg/4-6 hours. Do i need to adjust my tylenol (acetaminophen) dosage as well?

Is tylenol (acetaminophen) weight dependant like ibuprofen? I'm 350 lbs. Ibuprofen was prescibed 6-800 mg/4-6 hours. Do i need to adjust my tylenol (acetaminophen) dosage as well?

WHOA! : Neither is weight-dependent for full-sized adults (...Or bigger). Ibuprofen's safe maximum daily dose is 2400mg total. Acetaminophen's safe maximum daily dose is 3000mg total. The one does not impact the other. Problem is that you could be 8'6" and 350#, but your liver and kidneys are about the same size as a 4'6" 100# adult. Use caution! ...Read more

I'm taking Oxycodone HCL5 MG for pain, ZolipidemTart ER 12.5 MG for sleep, and Clonazpam 0.5 MG for anxiety. I can't sleep no matter when i take them?

I'm taking Oxycodone HCL5 MG for pain, ZolipidemTart ER 12.5 MG for sleep, and Clonazpam 0.5 MG for anxiety.  I can't sleep no matter when i take them?

Addiction, tolerance: Hi. I'm not preaching at you, but those are 3 controlled substances, all of which are potentially addicting, and all of which can induce tolerance. And if I had to guess, I'd guess you have a low pain threshold and an addictive personality. Might I suggest you worry less about your sleep and more about your chemical dependency. Again, not preaching, just wishing you good health. Good luck! ...Read more

I was prescribed tranxene (clorazepate) 7.5 mg po at bedtime, but I only have tranxene (clorazepate) 3.75 mg tablets. How many tablets do I need to take?

I was prescribed tranxene (clorazepate) 7.5 mg po at bedtime, but I only have tranxene (clorazepate) 3.75 mg tablets. How many tablets do I need to take?

Two, but talk to do: Obviously 3.75 +3.75=7.5 so the answer would be two. However there may have been a breakdown in communication between you and your doctor which led you to be in this situation when you don't know how your doctor wanted you to take your meds. It is also a good idea to talk with the doctor who prescribed the meds to be certain how he or she wanted you to take them. ...Read more

Could it be okay to mix niquil (acetaminophen 325 mg- dmx 15 mg and doxylamine 6.25 mg) with 3 benedryls (25 mg)?

Could it be okay to mix niquil (acetaminophen 325 mg- dmx 15 mg and doxylamine 6.25 mg) with 3 benedryls (25 mg)?

The reason?: I see no problem with acetaminophen being in the mix but taking 3 benadryl plus doxylamine may cause drowsiness and even constipation even though you may well be able to tolerate the combination. The question is what are you trying to treat? ...Read more

What sedatives work best Ambien cr, sonata, (zaleplon) lunesta, rozerem or silenor?I take restoril but doesn't work.I can't sleep unless i take an extra seroquel.

What sedatives work best Ambien cr, sonata, (zaleplon) lunesta, rozerem or silenor?I take restoril but doesn't work.I can't sleep unless i take an extra seroquel.

Don't get dependent: Taking more and more sleep meds is a dangerous path. Figure out why you can't sleep; see your primary care md first. Eliminate caffeine; don't exercise too late in the evening; stay away from your cell phone and other bright screens just before going to bed. Don't go to bed until you're sleepy. May need referral to sleep lab. Try to get off all sleep meds. Good luck! ...Read more
