Customer Question

Hi, I took hydrocodeine (5mg) and tylenol (2 pills) at 6pm for pain (cut my finger badly). I just took 50mg of benadryl just now for allegories/insomnia. Will I be okay? I am worried about the effect on my respiratory system.
I am also on a daily dose of 50mg of Zoloft and 100mg of Lamictal for Bipolar.

Thank you for your question.

I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

Taking hydrocodone, benadryl, lamictal & zoloft together can increase drowsiness, dizziness.

There can be lack of concentration, judgement.

If your doctor has prescribed all the medicines, then it may be OK.

If you have a person at hand, he can observe you for any excess sedation, breathing problem.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.

If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.

My doctor did not prescribe the benadryl and I live alone. Will I be okay to go to sleep?
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.

You can go to sleep.

You may sleep more than usual.

In the morning if you feel drowsiness, please do not drive.
