Hello
You cannot take tussionex & benadryl together.

Tussionex contains Hydrocodone and Chlorpheniramine.Benadryl contains Diphenhydramine. There is drug interaction between hydrocodone of tussionex & Diphenhydramine of benadryl. Together taken this may cause side effects. So I advice you to contact your doctor again.
