Does sominex actually help with sleep?

I took my trazadone 25 mg last night I wanna start my sominex 50mg tonight is that safe?

I took my trazadone 25 mg last night I wanna start my sominex 50mg tonight is that safe?

Sominex=Diphenhydram: Generally it's better in the long-term to practice Cognitive Behavioral skills for insomnia. Meds may or may not work in short term like adding Sominex (which is really Benadryl/Diphenhydramine) to Trazadone but it may result in tolerance and side effects. You are also taking K-pin and Inderal (propranolol). You've had a liver biopsy. It's possibly the meds aren't being processed well. Eliminate alcohol. ...Read more

Hello I know someone who's has cancer he wants to die he's taking 250 sominex which is diphenhydramine he also wants to use helium?

Hello I know someone who's has cancer he wants to die he's taking 250 sominex which is diphenhydramine he also wants to use helium?

Get the facts: As a pathologist, I've run into two completed suicides in which the person believed they had cancer but actually did not -- they had a manageable illness. Most terminal cancer can be managed by hospice and the barbarous cruelty of past decades is over in most jurisdictions. You can take away the pills, call 911, or phone the person's physician as applicable. At least phone hospice for him. ...Read more

Therapy?: Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as depression is medication (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room. ...Read more

I stopped taking my trazadone 25mg two nights ago because of the low heart rate I only took it for a month what's a safer alternative like sominex ok?

I stopped taking my trazadone 25mg two nights ago because of the low heart rate I only took it for a month what's a safer alternative like sominex ok?

Safer: behavioral rx: Are you sure trazadone lowered your heart rate? You are also taking a beta-blocker (Inderal) which can lower HR. You are taking Klonopin (clonazepam) (long-acting benzodiazepine) which can help sleep. I would not add OTC drugs without checking with your MD. Consider non-drug treatment for insomnia: CBT psychotherapy which could also help you with your anxiety. Consult a psychologist who treats sleep prob ...Read more

I have been taking over-the-counter sleeping pills and I have to take 4 to 5 times the dose what is going on I have been taking melatonin, tylenol (acetaminophen) pm, sominex

I have been taking over-the-counter sleeping pills and I have to take 4 to 5 times the dose what is going on I have been taking melatonin, tylenol (acetaminophen) pm, sominex

Insomnia: Insomnia isn't much fun. So first things first- no naps, no late night eating or water drinking to wake you up to urinate and give you heartburn. Exercise every day so you are tired. Don't drink alcohol at night! It breaks down into chemicals in about six hours that both wake you up and make you urinate. Bad plan. Your bedroom should be a place to sleep, not a place to surf on your computer, watch tv and eat snacks. Put a little tape over all your tiny lights so the room is dark and keep it cool. Keep regular sleeping hours.

Any otc medication that says "pm"- be it advil pm, tylenol (acetaminophen) pm etc has the medication Diphenhydramine or good ol' Benadryl and that antihistamine gives you a dry mouth and you feel rotten in the morning. Don't take more than 25 mg of Benadryl to sleep. Look at the labels- they are all the same. Melatonin is a supplement that some folks like but more isn't better.

If you are doing all the above things right- and you aren't depressed or sad or anxious (which is a whole different story) then consider seeing a doctor who specializes in sleep. But most insomniacs don't have good sleep hygiene so they don't sleep well because their room is hot, lit up and they keep drinking wine at night. All great ways to lose sleep. Good luck. ...Read more
