Interactions between your selected drugs
Moderate interaction , meaning:
Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.
diphenhydramine ↔ brompheniramine
Applies to: Benadryl (diphenhydramine), Bromfed DM (brompheniramine/dextromethorphan/pseudoephedrine)
Using diphenhydrAMINE together with brompheniramine may increase side effects such as drowsiness, blurred vision, dry mouth, heat intolerance, flushing, decreased sweating, difficulty urinating, abdominal cramping, constipation, rapid heart beats, confusion, and memory problems. Side effects may be more likely to occur in the elderly or those with a debilitating condition. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Also avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
