Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. There are no interactions. The two can safely be taken together. Being tired and weak is due to Benadryl. The duration of action is 4 hours. No this is not necessarily a sign of a bacterial infection, viral would always be more common

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.
