Do not stop taking any medications without consulting your healthcare provider.
Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. Also avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Using diphenhydrAMINE together with zolpidem may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, and difficulty concentrating.
Doctors give trusted answers on uses, effects, side-effects, and cautions: Dr. Matos on can you mix ambien and benadryl: Not sure if u r using the Benadryl.
Be careful though: ambien and benadryl ( diphenhydramine ) combination may make you more drowsy, so don't drive and don't exceed recommended dosage. Read more.
Both can cause tolerance (you need more to get the same effect), so better start with the lowest dose, but ambien has an abuse potential, it is a scheduled drug while benadryl ( diphenhydramine ) is OTC. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) vs ambien: If you can do without neither, would be better, or use only short term.
3 Answers - Posted in: ambien, benadryl - Answer: Yes it is safe. Just be aware Using diphenhydramine together with zolpidem.
etc. Easy for a stranger to say it's safe at face value, and, maybe it is, however the other fators unknown (to me) could make it unsafe, respiratory depression, drowsiness while driving the next day, etc. etc. I wouldn't recommend it unless your Dr agrees, we don't know your history or other conditions or medications you may be taking, or alcohol, etc. etc.
You can take Benadryl with the Ambien as long as you are aware that the combination can increase side effects of each including dizziness.

You can combine the two.
I'm lucky I didn't kill myself of somebody else in a horrible crash. I remember nothing for 12 hours. I took Ambien for several months without incident. I wouldn't combine Ambien with water, let alone Benadryl. blood tests just came back. I woke up in jail last Summer. Hide your keys--it could happen to you.
10 mg of Ambien was taken 2 1/2 hrs ago to help induce sleep. I am still awake and now of diphenhydramine? (in Simply Sleep & Benadryl).
Thanks~ Dear Fiddle Dreamer. I've tried searching briefly and haven't found an answer yet. Any facts would be much appreciated.
I am still awake and now wondering if taking 50 mg of diphenhydramine (in the form of Tylenol Simply Sleep) would be dangerous? I've also consumed 2 beers over the last 6 hours. 10 mg of Ambien was taken 2 1/2 hrs ago to help induce sleep.

Your best bet would be to call a 24 hour pharmacy and speak to a pharmacist. I did a search as well, and it appear that mixing the two is not a good idea, but like I said, you can consult with a pharmacist even at a very late hour!.
