Is it ok to take klonopin and benedryl

Resolved Question:

Is it ok to take klonopin and benedryl
Submitted: 3 years ago.
Category: Medical
Expert:  Dr Su S replied 3 years ago.
Greetings,

When both the drugs are used together, they can have additive effect on central nervous system. You may have decreased mental alertness, drowsiness, respiratory depression etc. but these are mostly observed in elderly & debilitated persons. If it is taken at different time, the effect can be less.

Any query, please feel free to ask.
It will be my privilege to assist you.
Regards.

I am not sure if the two together can decrease or increase one over the other, as I suffer from acute sinus issues as well as panic attacks

Expert:  Dr Su S replied 3 years ago.
How long are you taking those tablets together?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
It is not normally at the same time but within the same day, occasionally I may take them at the same time
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Is there a better allergy med I should take
Expert:  Dr Su S replied 3 years ago.
If you take both the medicine together you may feel more drowsy. When you are taking them frequently and do not feel any side effect, they are not producing any side effect on you. Zyrtec can be less sedative than benadryl. You may try it.

Relist: Incomplete answer.
Does klonopin and benedryl affect the way the meds work to help with allergies and panic . Does one contract the other?
Expert:  Dr Su S replied 3 years ago.
They do not counteract each other. If you take more of any of these medicines, you can feel the side effects. As long as you are not feeling any side effect, you can take them.
