Ativan and benadryl

Common Questions and Answers about Ativan and benadryl


Avatar f tn I took my .5 mg ativan and one benadryl for stuffy nose. Now wide awake and have to be up to work in 2 hours. Has this ever happened to anyone?? I also take my 12.5 zoloft in morning will this make me more jittery??
Avatar n tn that's a really low dose of Ativan and Ativan generally takes quite awhile to take effect, possibly an hour or two. I've tried trazodone too and that doesn't do much either - it's an antidepressant with sedation as a side effect, so they figure it will work but a lot of times it doesn't. If the trazodone doesn't work don't bother with it.
Avatar n tn 5mg a day and two doses of 50mg of benadryl during the day and 25mg at night with my last dose of Ativan and 1mg of melatonin to make sure I sleep. I never had a chance to ask my doctor about the melatonin either because he is not an easy person to get a hold of because he is usually extrememly busy. My final question has to do with zoloft. About two weeks ago my docotor also prescribed me 25mg of Zoloft.
Avatar n tn Hello, I have posted on these forums before and I find them to a great help. To sum things up quickly I started having anxiety about 2 weeks ago. I believe this started because I was worrying because I was misdiagnosed by doctor and told I had HSV-1 and 2 when in reality they read my results wrong and after further testing it proved that I don't have HSV.
527657 tn?1214051850 I was perscirbed two ativan for sleep and I still cannot sleep. I called my pharmacist and asked if i could take an over the counter sleeping aid with the ativan and she said yes. So about a week ago i started taking tylenol pm right before sleep. Within i would say ten min i am sleeping and i sleep through the night execpt for going to the rest room. Does anyone else to this?
Avatar f tn Stay away from xanax. It's short half life makes it quickly addicting. Klonopin is also addicting, but it's longer half life makes it more plausible for withdrawal symptoms. In other words, use the klonopin if you have it..but only for 5-7 days at most. And, try not to use it if you don't have to. You don't want a benzo addiction instead of an opiate one.
442042 tn?1205707694 s (valium, ativan, lorazepam, etc) to take foe a few days? They help a lot. Try and keep youself distracted -( movies, games, books, hobbies, whatever) And maybe use melatonin, benadryl (my favorite), sleepytime (celestial seasonings) tea - for sleep problems. My sleep is just getting back in order after almost 3 months....yours wont be as bad I'm sure...and I did it!
1550654 tn?1294747554 I cant take the ativan or xanax and it was making me suicidal....seriously...i am calling them today...i cant take any more meds...
Avatar f tn I had to take benadryl in order to sleep so the doctor changed it to paxil once a day and ativan prn. Its been 2.5 years and up to now i still get anxiety attack maybe once every 2 months but really mild, nothing a pill of ativan cannot solve. I promised myself that I would write this and share my experiences to help those people going thru tough time as I did to feel better and to let you guys know that YOU ARE NOT DYING, THEY ARE ALL SYMPTOMS OF ANXIETY AND THEY WILL GO AWAY.
Avatar m tn Try theanine its a natural supplement or valerian root its supposed to help with sleeping problems they are natural supplements. If not then you really should go see a doctor because not sleeping is not good at all, they may give you ativan. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn Congratulations!! I hope I can do as well. Did you try Benadryl? I'm coming off norcos and clonapin, but benadryl are supposed to help with sleep and are not addictive I don't think.
Avatar f tn im scared of the depakote i tryed it in 2008 and i rember i thought it makde me worse depressed and flat,,,im not knowing how he thinks its going to help me,,,,plus then i read depakote and ativan shouldnt be taken together
Avatar f tn Hi everyone Several months ago I experienced a very traumatic event in my life that I am still dealing with today. This event has reactivated my old (once dormant) anxiety, fears, phobias and obsessions to the point where I have just become a basket case. I have trembling, tight throat with frequent swallowing, raging anxiety, a constant state of stress, a floaty feeling in my head name it!.
Avatar m tn You do need the Ativan and Zoloft, and know each day on the Zoloft you are closer to feeling better and it will help control your racing mind. I agree that therapy would be very beneficial for you. Getting to the root of your problem is always the best way to go. It is a vicious cycle created by worry which feeds our anxiety. Hopefully, your doctor can help you with this and ask to be referred to a therapist. Take care.

Avatar f tn I injected in the tummy throughout my entire tx including Neupogen shots 2 x week. Like the others, I tried to inject in a different area each time. Belly fat I had, thighs not so much. I used Ambien for a brief period of time. It helped me fall asleep but it did not keep me asleep the entire night. During the last few months of treatment I also used Ativan to sleep it helped me stay asleep for at least 6 hrs. After stopping treatment, I had no problem falling asleep.
968560 tn?1307451498 t tel that much difference except they cost 50.00 and regular cost 10.00. I also take benadryl and ativan which also work sometimes.
Avatar f tn As I said, I have been feeling good, and feel that I have no reason to feel anxious today, this is all I can think of. Currently, I take 10mg of Lexapro, and 1.5mg of Ativan a day. I would like to cut out the Ativan, but I recently started a new job, which is stressful enough. So I want to be sure I am comfortable there before I start messing with meds. Anyway, any help would be appreciated as always!!
Avatar f tn I can feel perfectly fine and am able to eat and drink. However, that period of time is always short lived and may only be 30 to 40 minutes. I may or may not get a period of "well time" in the evening but lately this has not been the case. I will try to keep my treatment course and history short. I have been successfully treated with various I.V. and oral chemotherapy drugs. The most successful course of treatment were the antimalarials, specifically Plaquenil and Aralen.
Avatar m tn Went to emergency room, doctor there gave me Ativan... what can I do now? So I had a reaction to Unisom which caused several severe side effects one night, I called the emergency number and got taken to emergency room. They asked me some questions, I was in a lot of distress. I had a resting heart rate of around 170 when I went in, and around 140 for the next few hours. Among that, dry mouth, constant muscle spasms. I was very confused, I remember being asked if I'm stressed out at work.
Avatar f tn t let me get the sleep I so desperately need. Ugh Day 1 is just draaaaging. I have tried benedryl and ativan. I even tried the elliptical for 30 minutes. any other suggestions? I also tried the walgreens rsl. It just feel worse and it's probably because I'm freakin exhausted but can't sleep!
Avatar n tn I suffer from panic attack and got imsonia my doctor give 50 mg of benadryl to sleep but she use to give 5mg so if safe for me to take 50 mg of benadryl to sleep.
Avatar f tn Can I take a benadryl for an allergic reaction? Somehow a cucumber got into my salad and my face, lips, and mouth is starting to swell and itch.
Avatar f tn and now i have like 10 flea bites on my foot. i went to walmart and bought benadryl topical ointment. before i start applying just wanna know if its safe to use. i wanna get rid of the rashes and itchiness asap. i have this party coming up. im 33wks 2 days.. please help.
270554 tn?1289511647 Going to take the Ativan...starting at 0.5mg tonight, then i'll take it every other day....and then cut down the doses...felt like my brain has not slept since last Friday so guess this will help with the extreme tiredness... Thanks again for all your given me a lot of confidence and I also told my family that someone on the med forums was giving me advice..

Avatar f tn FTM and 18yrs. 21 weeks. Do any other mommys take a benadryl before bed? My doctor told me id be fine to take one before bed everynight. I have restless leg syndrome and have a really hard time getting comftorable at night and falling/staying asleep. I was just wondering if i'm the only one that does this? It helps me a lot.
