In brief: Based on your

concerns you've gone this route with the caffeine (excedrin) before.
Benadryl (diphenhydramine) plus Ibuprofen may get you to sleep. How you feel in the morning depends on how you react to the most anticholinergic substance known to man. Perhaps you should try another approach to the headaches (see a doctor)

In brief: Yes, you could

However, at this point allow stabilization to proceed, and do not take any more medicine.
Propose you contact your doctor about your experience, and if necessary, design a preventative program approach. Have no problem with prn Advil (ibuprofen) over next several hrs, and hope that too will work, but again inform your doctor.
