Combination of meds question
Jagtas posted:
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.

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!
