I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
You are experiencing benadryl side effects.
You have taXXXXX XXXXXttle too much at one time.
It is better to go to the ER for close observation.
The effects may last up to 3-4 hours.
So anything can happen within that period.
If you still have allergic reaction, a steroid treatment will be better to combat that.
What is one symptom I should look out for, that would signify I should go to the ER immediately? Because it seems as if my drowsiness and dizziness is subsiding?
difficulty in breathing
if your symptoms are subsiding then you may wait for now.
Is there a possibilty of seizure?
do you have any history of seizures?
No, I don't. And is there any chance for the worst case scenario, that I might not wake up if i do go to sleep?
That is also unlikely.
It is better to stay awake or have someone watch over you for next 3-4 hours.
Lastly, I take Topamax (makes you dizzy in large doses) and Zyprexa (makes you drowsy) at night, is it okay for me to still take them tonight?
By tonight the benadryl effects will be gone.
So that should be ok.
Okay, great. Thank you very much.
