I took 2 tylenol (acetaminophen) pm 18 hours ago. The box says not to take meds containing diphenhydramine for 24 hours. Is it safe to take clearquil before 24 hrs?

In brief: Diphenhydramine

Which qlearquil formulation do you want to use? At any rate , read the labels carefully as you did with tylenol (acetaminophen) pm, the idea is not to exceed a total dose of diphenhydramine of 300 mg/24 hours,so if you took 2 tylenol (acetaminophen) pm18 hrs ago, that has 50 mg of diphenhydramine,you should be fine, the label on the tylenol (acetaminophen) was meant to protect you from overdosing if you took full dose of it besides other meds
