    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I took a 10 MG pill of Reactine 24 hours non-drowsy, I thought it was just allergies but apparently the stuffed nose got worse, my throat was getting sore and I can't sleep at all.

    Question is, can I take a benadryl? To knock myself out and get some temporary relief. I can't deal with this right now, I'm extremely exhausted and my eyes are all bloodshot.

    Thanks!

    Hi Jagtas,

    Hope you finally got some rest and are doing better. Just wanted to offer you this WebMD/Medscape Drug Interaction Checker that helps to judge which drugs and foods can have negative interactions and should be avoided.

    Even though this tool is very helpful, I encourage you to always speak with your medical professional before taking any medication that is not prescribed to you or you may have doubts about.

    Best wishes!
    Amelia
