You may take Benadryl or unisom sleep tab or gel for one off use with the drugs you are taking.

These have the effect of increasing sedation when used with Seroquel or Klonopin which is the exactly the effect we want.

don't increase the meds just add Benadryl?
Expert:  Dr.Amita replied 1 year ago.

Yes, you continue with your regular schedule and just take Benadryl for one time use.

The dosage of your regular drugs should be adjusted by your regular doctor who has prescribed these drugs to you.
