At 10 00 p.m., I took a Legatrin caplet (50 mg Diphenhydramine/500

Resolved Question:

At 10:00 p.m., I took a Legatrin caplet (50 mg Diphenhydramine/500 Tylenol). It did not
take away leg pain. Can I now (at 1:00 a.m.) take 25 mg of Promethazine so that I can sleep? It has been just three hours since taking the Legatrin.

Hello Ginger-


Yes, if it has been 3 hours after the Diphenhydramine/Tylenol, you CAN take promethazine (Phenergan). That should not be a problem.


Good luck.
