Customer Question
My daughter takes .75...

My daughter takes .75 of a .1mg clonidine pill for adhd and tourettes. She usually takes 1mg melatonin at the same time. I just realized we are out of melatonin and she will be up until literally midnight with just the clonidine. Is it safe to give her benadryl at the same time as clonidine tonight?

Doctor's Assistant: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?

She is 8 years old.

Hello,

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

Clonidine and Benadryl do not have drug interaction. So she may take it.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
