If You Take Blood Pressure Medicine Can You Take Benadryl

Has been stung by a bee or wasp and was wondering if i can take benadryl while taking benicar

Answer

I take Benadryl all the time with blood pressure medicine, but my blood pressure medication is not Benicar. I ran Benicar and Benadryl through the Drug Interaction Checker and it said, "Caution is advised during coadministration of these agents. Close monitoring for development of hypotension is recommended. Patients should be advised to avoid rising abruptly from a sitting or recumbent position and to notify their physician if they experience dizziness, lightheadedness, syncope, orthostasis, or tachycardia."
