Taking daily Benazepril 10 mg, Lipitor 10 mg, Metoprolol ER 50 mg and frequently Diphenhydramine HC1 (Benedryl) for allegries. Recently dozed off suddenly while driving and had a car wreck, should drug interactions, dosages be medically re-evaluated?
It is unlikely to be a drug interaction.
Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is an antihistamine and is the medication most likely to have made you drowsy. Drowsiness is a common side-effect. There should be a warning on the label.
This from https://www.drugs.com/benadryl.html
"... Important information about Benadryl
Use caution when driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous activities. Benadryl may cause dizziness or drowsiness. If you experience dizziness or drowsiness, avoid these activities. Use alcohol cautiously. Alcohol may increase drowsiness and dizziness while taking Benadryl."
