I took two .25mgs of Benadryl at 8:45p.m. Can I take .50mgs…

Customer Question
I took two .25mgs...

I took two .25mgs of Benadryl at 8:45p.m. Can I take .50mgs of Lorazepam now?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

I have Cervical Dystonia, so I take .25mgs Lorazepam three times a day. But I forgot to take the noon Lorazepam today.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Im feeling very jittery right now.

Thank you for waiting.
I understand your concern.
Taking lorazepam now can cause drowsiness, dizziness.
It can cause confusion, difficulty in concentration.
I would advise not to take it.
I hope this information will be helpful.

I've been diagnosed with Blepharospasm and Cervical Dystonia. It only stops when I'm asleep my husband says. The Lorazepam doesn't help for this but I continue to take it because I feel like I get more anxious ( spasms) if I don't. Nothing has helped me.
Health Professional: Dr. Su S, Doctor (MD) replied 5 months ago

Botox can be done for this problem.

You can discuss with your doctor about it.

Botox didn't work for me. When would it be safe to take my Lorazepam?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
It's been an hour and a half since I took the Benadryl.
Health Professional: Dr. Su S, Doctor (MD) replied 5 months ago

You can take it after 6 hours of taking benadryl.

At that time the interaction will be minimum.

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!!
