Can I safely take Benedryl @ night after having taken Allegra 180 mg earlier in the day?

When I have really BAD allergies like right now w/ all of the ragweed I can safely take Benedryl along w/ my Allegra or Singular which I am now on. The Benedryl is the only thing that gets rid of the "itchy" feel in my eyes, nose and ears. Another good thing is the Zicam Allergy Relief that is otc and homeopathic in how it works and my doc has no problem w/ me using it if it helps relieve the itchy feel in my nose.

The best advise I can give is to call your local wal-mart or walgreen pharmacist for that question. I am a respiratory therapist, I would suggest you talk to your Doc about either trying Singulair at night or switching you to Zyrtec D with some sort of spray. Flonase or Nasonex. These to are steriodal, but there are some non-steroidal which are the same as a nasal saline wash.

Since I'm sure someone will think this needs to get moved let me add that right now allergies are REALLY BAD in the Dallas and North Texas area so this IS indeed something more common for this area. Ragweed is rough this time of year and I know of many that are suffering thru it right now. I'm actually doing pretty well considering. BUT, I just had an intial visit w/ a allergy/asthma doc a few weeks ago and he put me on Singular over Allegra along w/ Nasonex and told me to use the Benedryl when the "itchy" stuff got too bad. I also have Patanol eye drops.

Seem that the Singulair or Zyrtec D plus your steroidal nasal spray combo works the best. It is the combination I use. Hope this works for you. Benedryl only works on the external effect of the allergy (itching, runny eyes, swelling). Your other meds will work on the allergy internally at the cellular level. This makes them more effective. I feel you pain with your allegies.

Why in the world would you post this kind of question here? Next question is why would you follow medical advice given to you on a anonymous forum with the topic of Dallas? Cal the closest pharmacy and talk to a pharmacist or call you doctor.

What's the big deal?? they can ask any question they want on here; I guess they are smart enough to know that there are all types of posters on this forum
if you haven't noticed, there are doctors; nurse practitioners; Respiratory therapist, pharmacy techs, and pharmacists; my kids are at least. And it's only asking about Benadryl, not Dilaudid or anything that serious. Give us a break!!
Thanks

I took a prescription drug (Cephalexin) and I broke out in a rash. What kind of Benedryl can I take to help the rash go away? It also kind of itches at times.

I too am allergic to that antibiotic. You did stop taking the medicine-right? If not,then I would. You need to let your doctor know so he/she can prescribe something else. Not sure you'll need Benadryl if you've stopped the Cephalexin but Benadryl is Benadryl so I don't understand your question about what "kind" of Benadryl to take.
