I alternate between Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and klonopin (for sleep) is it safe to take klonopin for anxiety morning after taking a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for sleep?
Cannot fully endorse. Your information is of concern, as you describe issues with both sleep and anxiety and they may well relate. However, sounds like this may be getting more complex. You obviously have a sleep disorder, and may well need help with the anxiety. Please see a sleep specialist, and perhaps a psychiatrist, as there may be more success with an alternative approach.
I've checked. Same, ; see no reason except excessive fatigue as a problem.
Hubby got scary CT results and I have had anxiety hives for 2 days. They come and go. Already on. 5mg Klonopin 3x's a day. Can I take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or??
Moderate interaction. Benedryl can increase the sedating effects of Klonopin (clonazepam). Some people exerience dizziness and confusion with this combination, so it would be important to avoid driving or performing tasks that require good concentration. Zyrtec is indicated for chronic hives, and may be less sedating than Benedryl. Read more...
