Ok to take ranitidine and diphenhydramine?

Yes. There is no interaction between these tow meds so you can take them in combination without interaction complications. However, Diphenhydramine can make you quite drowsy, so be careful if driving or using machinery ( i fall asleep just reading the bottle!). Read more...

Was wondering if it was safe to mix ranitidine and benadryl (diphenhydramine) together and give to my one year old like that?

Yes. But why does he need ranitidine? I know of no reason why these medications cannot be taken together and thus the mixing is likely ok. Read more...
Mgt. They can be given as recommended by your pediatrician. They should be given separately rather than mixed in my opinion. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is not for cold symptoms-- if your child is having an allergic reaction, please see your PCP right away. Read more...

Hives for 4 days I hve perscribed meds hydroxyzine 25mg, diphenhydramine 25 mg, Ranitidine hydrochloride 150 mg & cetirizine 10mg. Wat should I use?

That's a lot. Cetirizine taken every day helps reduce frequency/severity of hives outbreaks. Hydroxyzine reduces itching immediately but also is potently sedating so is best used at bedtime only when needed. Diphenhydramine is similar to hydroxyzine but less effective (also less sedating) and can be used for as-needed daytime use. Ranitidine may complement cetirizine for some people with very severe symptoms. Read more...
