Common Questions and Answers about Can i take ativan with benadryl


Avatar f tn Yes with .5 mg Ativan not with .25 mg. but I can only take one Benadryl anyway as 2 gives me jitters. Tonight I will just take the Ativan. Hopefully get some sleep. The Zoloft in morning at least kept me awake during the day but now I am pretty tired. I was on Zoloft years ago and wasn't on Ativan. Hopefully next week can bump it to 25 mg like I was supposed to. Anxiety still there and I don't like to be on Ativan if I don't need to.
270554 tn?1289515247 I'm 4 days in with withdrawal and suffering from all the symptoms - Depression, anxiety, de-personalization, shaking, unable to do normal task, can't drive, no appeite, dizzyness, insomina, fast heart beat.... Can benadryl help with some of these symptoms? If I take it at night? Or in the day as well? I know I did a few post on anxiety with my issue, but I need to know if this can help?
Avatar n tn I really do enjoy Fiorinal/Fioricet/Esgic. I have never known anyone who appreciated it the way I do. I had an unlitimed supply until I lost my Pharmacy tech job! Then I found a pharmacist who would keep me stocked up. I was taking so many my friends thought I was drunk. I just told them I had a headache. (I am a closet addict.) Now the pharmaict is missing. He was supply many people with many drugs and he didn't show up for his sentencing.
Avatar n tn When I feel a little excitability and it's not time to take another Ativan I will usually take 25mg of Benadryl to help keep me calm. I consulted with my mother and she said that it would be ok but that I could just take another Ativan if necessary, but I really want to keep my daily intake at 1.5mg. I also take a Valium at night with my dose of Ativan to help me sleep because I have been having problems staying durig the night. Is it ok to be mixing Ativan with Valium at night?
Avatar n tn someone please tell me what to dr says take benadryl...benadryl makes me more anxious.....
707438 tn?1240963240 I am in so much pain passing gravel and small stones i called the doctors and all they can say is take the meds you were given i told them i did and its not working and they say tuff you cant go to the er what do i do now i feel like every day is a struggle and that no one believes or even cares around here sometimes i just want to disappear forever but then my kids would be lost with out me so some how i just keep going but today i can barely get out of bed and it hurts soooo much.
Avatar n tn If the trazodone doesn't work don't bother with it. You could combine the Ativan with Benadryl or Tylenol PM (although I'm no doctor, I've suffered insomnia enough too) but my suggestion would be to up the Ativan to, well, you could go all the way up to 2 mg if you had to, and take it an hour or so before you plan to go to sleep. :) Good luck!
Avatar f tn I am wndering what dose I would take. I think I have 2mg tablets. I shouldn't take the melatonin at all? Thanks so much for your help. The solumedrol is definately helping but the sleeplessness is a killer. Thanks for all of your help.
Avatar n tn Because I get really vivid dreams that I believe comes from the Xanax I take every so often. As far as I know, Xanax is related to Ativan. So I bet you it's that. I was drving myself crazy for awhile because I couldn't quit dreaming, and it was actually causing me to be MORE tired in the morning because I didn't feel like I was getting enough sleep. And during the day I would think of something, and I didn't know if something had really happened, or if I had dreamed it.
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 m tn So this is keeping me up. What a mess. I would never have started Ativan if I knew the dangers. If anyone has experience with this or has gone through withdrawal of Ativan, please reply. Sometimes I have moments of clarity where I don't feel like I'm having these withdrawal symptoms and then I go right back into being shaky with the chills...thinking I'm on the verge of dying. Thank you for your replies.
Avatar n tn I take ativan about 2-3x a week for sleep. However, I had to take two .5 tablets this saturday for my attack..which it didn't work. YEsterday, I used one I am no tablet and then I am weaning off. Yes, alcohol may work for a bit, but then it willinterrupt my sleep. Plus it is calories....which is another problem for me as well. Also, I have a severe headache today....I am not sure if it is the after effect of the attack (3 hours) or if it is the ativan. It feels like both.
Avatar n tn Now the headache begins. O sheeesh. Aaron i am afraid to take benadryl and the valium. Can you believe that!! After all the hydrocodone I have ingested over the years now I am afraid to mix valium and benedryl. I am afraid to ask hubby to go to the store one more time and I am not up to going after the supplements. Thanks you two.
Avatar n tn My sex life is coming back and i am starting to use the bathroom #2 more frequently without the pebble beach so to speak. If i can do it, anyone can do it. I feel soooo much better and i would rather deal with my pain than be addicted to these damn drugs. I just want everyone to know they can quit if they truly want to. I wish everyone the best.
Avatar n tn I found that ativan calms your nerves for a longer period of time were as xanax may hit you quicker ativan lowers your nerves for a longer time, and they are not a anti dep so you can take em when you want,ativan has been around for years so docs arent shy to to give it to you i take 1mg at 12:00 noon then 1mg, at 9:00 at night about 1 hour before bed and that usually helps me sleep alot , of course you wake up to pee but i seem to go back to sleep ok only had to use ambien a few times ......
Avatar m tn however I need your help to see what I can take to fall asleep. I need to work everyday so my night sleep is NEEDED! I was wondering if I could go buy Simply Sleep or similar OTC sleeping pills in order to fall asleep or buy weed but I just want to get off Lorazepam. I am not sure if I will become dependent on this ones. Please help me out because I have been reading LORAZEPAM withdrawal is awful and need your help!
Avatar f tn I'm currently on Effexor and Visatril, i have to take an Effexor every 12 hours, and can take 2 Vistarils every 4 hours. Some days i do okay, other days i do horrible like today and cant even leave my bed. I could really use the help of someone who has gone through this. I've gotten tested and tested and tested. my last one was a 6.
Avatar f tn my new guy has been theer for me through all of this but its stressful bc i still am married but i dont think i can be wiht my husband anymore so im trying not to move too fast with the new guy but its hard bc he has been so good to me. he gives me a back massage every nite and stays up with me all nite. i dont know is there something im doing wrong? is there any other thigns i can do to make this easier?
Avatar f tn She's actually pretty funny, and when she starts to get anxious my sister says...take an ativan. It does the trick every time immediately. She usually takes ativan for 4 - 5 days after chemo.
458072 tn?1291418786 I nearly did myself in over not sleeping more than 2 hours a night for 3 weeks before my hypo was finally dx'd. The only thing that helped, besides starting Synthroid, was the combination of Ativan and Trazadone. Within 1 week of the combo, I was feeling so much better. Not sleeping is extremely disruptive to all of our body functions, particularly mood problems. My anxiety combined with the anxiety was horrific. I was unable to take care of my kids or myself.
Avatar f tn i have never developed a tolerence to it and i just fall asleep 20 minutes after i take it...but it can be abused and there are people who have an addiction to nyquil and benadryl careful with any drug you use..even OTC drugs...
Avatar n tn I finall gave up on his problem in February of this year.....When he approached me with his intention to quit, I told him I would help him get through this...BUT it is very hard for me!!! Any advice on all of the above????
276730 tn?1327966546 It'll get better once the meds level out. I don't take Tylenol PM when I am "Sleepless in Ft. Lauderdale" I take just the Benadryl. I buy store brand (generic) liquid childrens. Tastes like **** but it works. I take a half a teaspoon (If I can't sleep) that is usually enough to put me over the edge to lala land for about 4 hours, then I take another half if I can't fall back to sleep when i wake up at about 2am. I only use this a couple times a week but it works.
Avatar m tn I had a relapse with alcohol and cocaine, and stopped using everything, now i am a wreck. i feel that i can get through it, just scared.tired of this cycle.has anyone gone through this, how long will it take my body to no longer be chemically dependent?
Avatar m tn I took the second dose with dinner and made sure dinner contained some fat (not usually a problem the way my husband cooks) because the few times I took riba on an empty stomach it gave be heartburn. I am allergic to benadryl, and I don't take OTC meds much, so I used the occasional Ativan on those nights when anxiety was keeping me awake. I seriously doubt that taking the evening riba earlier will help your husband sleep.
365103 tn?1203283268 I have nyquill with codiene... should i not take that? i dont want that to count as a relapse... every night i wake up wicked sick around 3am. i just want a good nights sleep... im so sick of being sick. and im not even doing drugs, just trying to come off suboxone...
Avatar n tn Until recently I started with pills, I'm now 25 and it's always been one thing or another with me. I used to take Vicodin and Percocet for about a year and a half. I stopped about a month ago, COLD TURKEY. I just got tired of letting them control my life. Anyways, I also stopped smoking about two weeks ago, I also quit eating so much as I am overweight and weigh 330 pounds. I've had tests done on me and all were fine. I've had a CT of my brain, MRI of my neck and X-Rays of my chest.
1134609 tn?1269275800 I don't screw around with my meds at all; I take them religiously. I was given the script for Xanax XR about six months ago and I have take 5 of them in that space of time. I also have a bottle of Ativan that I was given a full year ago and I've take 4 of them in 8 months. Last night, I stuck with my evening dose of Neurontin and Melatonin, but I was still wide awake. That's when I took the Xanax XR, but it didn't do anything. The Benadryl finally put me to sleep.
Avatar f tn From what I've been reading, I should be through the worst of the withdrawal by then. I am day 2 right now. It's bad, but most of it I can deal with except the RLS and the fact that when I try to sleep, my whole body jerks every minute or two. I tried taking a benadryl to sleep, but was still flopping around like a fish all night. Is there anything that helps with this feeling that anyone knows of?
