Can u take Robitussin (guaifenesin) CF during the day and bebedryl at bedtime?

Yes you can: Robitusson CF is an expectorant and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is an antihistamine. I see that you are trying to avoid sedative effect during the daytime.You may use claritin, Allegra or zyrtec once at night as alternative.Generally less sedating than benadryl (diphenhydramine). ...Read more
