Customer Question
Can I take benadryl...

Can I take benadryl after going to the er 6 hours ago and getting a liquid steroid? I feel slightly better but my headache is preventing sleep

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

No nausea. I woke up with swollen face, headache and throat feeling tight so I went to the er

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

I'm being treated for cancers I'm doing chemo. I think this may be a reaction to simithicone which I took yesterday

Hello,

Myself Dr Josh. and I’m happy to help with your question today.

Yes,there is no interaction of benadryl & liquid steroid.

Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is an antihistamine that reduces the effects of natural chemical histamine in the body. It also induces sleep.

As you are having headache that is preventing sleep, you can take tab.benadryl.

There is no drug interaction between these two drugs. They can be safely taken together.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

If you have any further question then you can ask me.

Please leave positive rating above the chat box so I can get credit for helping you today ,we only get after positive feedback.

Bonus is highly appreciated.

We are here to help you until you satisfy.

Kind Regards

Dr.Josh

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.
