Not if they both contain Benadryl (diphenhydramine).
Yes. But to be sure ask your pharmacist.
No, it doesn't look like there is a direct cause to that particular disease, but they have found that consistent, long-term use of Benadyrl and drugs like it can be linked to cognitive impairment and dementia.

All drugs have side effects. The side effects of diphenhydramine are drowsiness, dry mouth, headache, and confusion.
No, not unless these medicines have been prescribed for you by a qualified medical practitioner (a Doctor).

Diphenhydramine is labeled as a CNS depressant. CNS depressants are also referred to as sedatives or tranquilizers. They slow your brain activity, which makes it easier for you to sleep or relax.
It will be determined by the vet according to the condition
No, Benadryl has not been shown to have any effect on hormonal products or birth control.
If Benadryl is being given to a dog to calm it I have asked my Veterinarian the same question. He told me give the dog 1 wait 30 minutes, give another, wait 30 minutes. Keep going like this till you have the desired effect, a dog will settle down or even go to sleep before yo can over dose them. To be sure, consult a professional before you blame me for any advice I was… Read More
The standard benadryl (diphenhydramine) dose for a dog is 1 milligram (1mg) per pound every 8-12 hours. For example a 25 pound dog could get 25mg of benadryl two to three times per day. This can cause drowsiness. if your dog is too sleepy after dosing you can give 1/2 a dose. I am not a veterinarian and I recommend that you never give any medication (even over the counter medication like benadryl) without first… Read More
Benadryl, or diphenhydramine hydrochloride, when taken by mouth, works within 15 to 60 minutes. When injected through a muscle, it takes 20 to 30 minutes to work. When injected through a vein, it works rapidly. The effects of diphenhydramine hydrochloride work for approximately 4 to 8 hours, regardless of the form in which it is taken.
Yes, You can also give you cat pepto , but neither should be given until your vet gives u the amount No, you can't.
Never use human medicine on your pets - it could easily result in overdose. Speak to a vet if your dog needs treatment or medicine, so the can prescribe medicine that is safe for the dog. Another Answer I read on a veterinarian hospital web page that you were not supposed to give the liquid Benadryl to dogs due to the high alcohol content. My dog got into nettles this weekend, and she weighs 15… Read More
Benadryl, or diphenhydramine hydrochloride, has a shelf life of one year for pills and six months for liquid/suspensions. However, this particular medicine only lose a little effectiveness past this shelf life, and is not harmful.
yes you can give your dog benadryl along with the antibiotics(clavamox) but only give baby benadryl starting with half of the regular dose indicated for babies. if you are not seeing any changes in your dogs behavior (seems a bit more sluggish than normal) wait until it is time for the next dose and give the full amount.
It's never a good idea to give your pet a medicine that is not recommended by a vet. Giving (especially human) medicine to a dog without knowing the correct dosage can be harmful and at worse, fatal. If you believe your dog needs treatment, take it to the vet.

This would depend on your allergic reaction and you individually. Benadryl is an anti-histamine. Some people with certain health conditions or who are on certain medications cannot have anti-histamine medicines. Also, if your tongue, lips, throat, or eyes swell up a lot or you are having trouble breathing- you should go to the emergency room. If none of the above apply- and you are having a mild episode of hives or a mild rash or… Read More
You should consult a physician, but, yes, benadryl is an antihistamine which is effective against certain allergies. Poison Ivy and other contact dermatitis usually responds well to it.
Benadryl is the brand name for the drug diphenhydramine. It's used in lots of over the counter analgesics and sleep aids, and also in injectable form to reverse histamine allergic reactions. The normal dose for over the counter use is 50mg. I would think that an accidental dose of 62mg would make you a little drowsy, but not much of anything else. I wouldn't worry about it. Remember that advice given out on the internet… Read More
Theoretically yes, but it's certainly not advisable. Each has a sedative as an active ingredient, and taking the two amplifies that sedative effect. An average person, on occasion, would not be harmed with a single dose of NyQuil mixed with a single dose of Benadryl, but it will knock you out cold, so don't plan on sleeping eight hours and then waking up feeling refreshed. I'd imagine you'd sleep ten and then still feel drowsy… Read More
Pills when they take the liquid they seem to throw it up also with pills you can give more of a better dose and without any spilling
If it's a true URI, benadryl probably won't work anyway. Benadryl is an antihistamine and more helpful for allergies. You'll need antibiotics most likely, in which case you need a vet to prescribe. You can always look for an emergency vet clinic or just wait until your vet's office is open (assuming it's just after hours and they'll be open the next day). URI's can become serious and sometimes be a sign of something fatal(Felv… Read More
dosent really do anything to the plant it dosent die but it dosent grow either, i got resultsbecause i did the experiment.
Yes, it is just ibuprofen and diphenhydramine, the same ingredients in Advil P.M.
Most likely, but you might want to consult your physician.
Giving a dog 1 mg of Benadryl per pound of body weight can make it drowsy. Always ask a vet before giving any medication to a dog with health problems.
Benadryl is usually used to control itching, particularly from allergic reactions. However, in very rare instances a person can be allergic to Benadryl itself. In that case it might cause itchiness.
eh like 8 hours or less took 10 like 2 hours ago..................................................all good
According to YAHOO ANSWERS - A dog 50lbs and up gets 50 mg. (they also have recommend amounts for smaller dogs and cats. Another source said 1mg to every lb. ( so a 75lb dog could have 75 mg)
how much benadryl can i give a small dog weighs 15 pounds or less
Diphenhydramine, the main ingredient in Benadryl, works by blocking histamine at receptor sites. It also decreases central nervous system function, causing drowsiness.
you should be able to take aleve and Benedrul since I have not had any adverse effets. However some people are allergic to Alleve because of the ingredients NSAIDS sometime cause allergic reactions such as hives swelling and itchy burning ect. Benedryl will make those symptoms go away then you know not to take alleve again but just in case keep benedryl handy
No over the counter medications should be taken while pregnant without talking to a doctor first, preferably one's own OB/GYN.
I have a 14lb Bishon-poo and I need to know how much lqd childrens Benadryl to give to calm her so that I can trim her.---I do not have money to pay you --
I use an eyedropper and give mine only a couple of drops. I have to give mine Benedryl when she gets her vaccinations. Additional Answer: Dogs can have 1-2mg of Benadryl per pound, every 8 hours. This can be used to treat allergic reactions, and it also has some anti-anxiety effects. As a general rule, Benadryl is very effective for both dogs and cats, as it is for humans, and, as with humans, the primary… Read More
Long enough for it to die.
The expiration date on most drugs tell you when the manufacturer is guaranteeing it will have the maximum potency. Taking a drug after the expiration date is taking a chance that it won't be as effective as a drug taken within the "guaranteed effective." So, in answer to your question, on the diphenhydramine, no one knows if it is safe. All you can say for sure, is the manufacturer will not guarantee the drug is… Read More
Definitely. Tylenol PM capsules have 500mg of acetaminophen and 25mg of diphenhydramine Keep in mind not to take too much Acetaminophen. Taking too much is definitely dangerous.
I have been prescribed codeine and benadryl simultaneously. It may slightly reduce the effectiveness of the codeine, but that's all.
What sleep aid is safe to take while pregnant??
Just ask your doctor
NO my grandomther did and she is in the ICU. She has a macine breathing for her and a heart monitor please donjt mix them !
can you mix benadryl and azithromycin
You should not be doing it at all.
The Answers community requested more information for this question. Please edit your question to include more context.
Type your answer here... yes
Yes benadryl and prednisone can be taken together - my doctor has had me take both many times.
Yes, I've never seen anything regarding an interaction between the two.
Diphenhydramine is generally ordered for patients before infusion of blood components if the patient has a history of mild/moderate allergic (urticarial) reactions during/following transfusion.
Check your measurements ! - 25mg is an infinitesimal amount, only a drop or two. There is no accurate way to measure something so small in a teaspoon.
Typically, you give 1-2 mg per pound. So for a 3 pound dog, give 3 to 6 mg of Benadryl.
I wouldn't see why not. I mean I've done it plenty of times. I'm not dead or anything.
you cant mix it! literally but you can take the benadryl first and wait 30 minutes for the effect then take the mebendazole... by doing this your making the worms sedate making them less active so they wont go anywhere in the holes in your body (eyes,ears,nose,lungs etc.) but in your anal hope this help
in addition to its role in reducing allergic reactions, may be used as a nighttime sedative, for control of drug-induced Parkinsonism, and, in liquid form, for control of coughs.
If benadryl is ordered by a doctor, nurse, or other treating healthcare professional in prescription quantities, and if the other circumstances of the injury meet the OSHA definition, then the injury is OSHA recordable. In the US, doses greater than 50 mg require a prescription.
Just put some vinegar on it... you turkey.
8 hours, or until you sleep and wake up again.
There is no form of Benedryl specific to dogs; they get the same one we do.
can i take benadryl and gabapentin together, if i knew the answer to this question that i have would not be looking online to find the answer
Absolutley. Melatonin is a natural chemical produced by the brain to help permit/regulate sleep. However, taking excessive amounts of Benadryl as well as melatonin can be dangerous if you have low blood pressure or other heart conditions. Always check with your doctor. But one or two of each pill will be fine. You'll enjoy a deep sleep, that's for sure.
It depends on how much benadryl you plan on taking. If you plan on intentionally overdosing on benadryl for its psychoactive effects, that would definitely not be safe. Methamphetamine releases serotonin, and, with diphenhydramine being an SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor), a combination of the two could result in Serotonin Syndrome, which is a very serious and life threatening condition requiring immediate medical assistance. However, if the amount of benadryl you plan on taking is… Read More
Yes, Zyrtec or cetirizine is a great medication if the child is experiencing any allergies, and there are hardly any known side effects. Benadryl is also a safe medication and will act also as a sleep aid for the night time. Zyrtec should be available in 5 and 10 mg tablets while benadryl will come as 25 and 50 mg capsules. Both also have a liquid formulation. I would stick with the lower doses on… Read More
Yes. Xyzal is an oral antihistamine and Benedryl is a topical antihistamine. Not much of the cream is absorbed.
Benadryl is an antihistamine (helps allergies) which means that it would not help an ear infection.
One tsp equals 5ml liquid. This is similar for all liquids.
No, there is no direct interaction between Benadryl and Minocycline. From personal experience if you take both at night before bed, then have to wake up in the middle of the night, dizziness and lightheadedness is increased.
Can you take Benadryl if you are taking Digoxin
1 to 2 mgs per pound every 12 hours... no tylenol, make sure its ingredient is dyphenhydramine, or benadryl@
approx 5mls is the equivalent of one teaspoon so 15 mls = 3 teaspoons
Just to be safe I wouldn't because your child could overdose .... Not easily at all .. But to be safe I'd not.. It's safe to take benadryl .. But not every day or night ..
yes almost are the same thing
No you do not want to take two medications that make you drowsy at the same time.
Benadryl is a completely different type of drug to Atopica. Atopica is often used for allergys especially skin problems (perhaps this is what is wrong with your dog?). It is a very good drug and acts to dampen down the inappropriate immune response your dog is experiencing helping her feel more comfortable and less itchy. Benadryl is not licensed for use is dogs and comes in a strength made for humans, not a little Maltese… Read More
Benadryl is an over the counter antihistamine. It is used to treat allergic reactions. Since Benadryl is an antihistamine, it would be very unlikely to cause a rash.
Anaphylactic reactions to prednisone and Benadryl aren't common, but both are possible. In the case that true anaphylaxis is occurring, epinephrine is given followed by oxygen. This is usually followed by the administration of steroids and antihistamines. If a person is allergic to both prednisone and Benadryl, supportive measures and alternative medications can be used.
I think it might be Debra Stephenson
Yes u can but don't use more than 2
I am a registered Vet assistant, and have been working at a vet clinic for some time. WE give liquid and pill form benadryl quite often to dogs. The rule of thumb is 1mg per pound. For example: a 25lb dog can take 25mg of benadryl. I read on a veterinarian hospital page that you were NOT supposed to give the liquid form of benadryl to dogs.
no. the drug's half-life is around 10hrs so after a whole day (24hrs) less than 1/4 of it will be in your system.
UM...NO! It will raise the Lamictal level in your blood and cause all sorts of problems...seizures in my case. Check drugs.com before ever taking anything with Lamictal!!
Yes, but you need to make sure you are giving the right dose. Liquid Benadryl has a concentration listed on the bottle in the form ### mg/ml. From this, your veterinarian can help you figure out how much to give your dog.
It would be better to talk to a vet to get the proper medication. Benadryl is designed for human use, and may be harmful to dog.
Take the dosage that is recommded on the label. All medication that is certified by the FDA is required by law to have instructions on usage. DO NOT exceed the daily amount for any reason. Be Good! Those who use diphenhydramine recreationally take a higher dose than recommended (usually between 225mg and 450mg, or 9-18 pills) for its deliriant effects. Diphenhydramine (the active ingredient in Benadryl) is also a component of the recreational form of… Read More
Don't ask that here. People can't reply fast enough. Read the warnings on the bottle and call a doctor or poison control center to find the answer. But yes. If you've taken more than ten 25mg pills, you might be developing a stomach ulcer, or internal stomach bleeding. It's not usually life-threatening though, but have a doctor look at you right away.
I know they can have benadryl so just call your vet and let him tell you how much an how long and onlt do this if its itching
If the tablets are 25 mg, cut tablet in half. If the tablets are 50 mg, cut the tablet in 4ths.
"Giving human medicine to animals can be tricky and should always been done according to your vet instructions." However, according to vetpets.net (Vet Pets Animal Hospital in Cordova, TN), Diphenhydramine (Benadryl®) can be used to treat allergic reactions in dogs and cats. The primary side effect is drowsiness, although some cats and dogs, like some humans, may have varying side effects, from mild to severe. The dosage vetpets recommends is 1-2 mg per pound in… Read More
I've given my dog this medication. I believe that's the generic name for benadryl. I would use the children's version of benadryl and dose according to the animals weight. (I'm not a veterinarian and have no medical training so YMMV)
For benadryl the dosage is 1mg per pound in mild cases, if there is a severe reaction such as swelling after vaccination you can use 2mg per pound.
You should ask a veterinarian. They will tell you the proper form of benadryl, and the dosage depending on the animal's size.
