Can You Mix Prednisone And Benadryl?

I'm taking predisone for an allergic reaction from a sulfa-based drug for a urinary tract infection. The itching is awful and all over my body. Will taking a Benedryl help or make it all worse?

Answer

Benadry is sometimes used to treat itching. I am not aware of any interactions between the two, but I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you over the internet. For the safest bet, I'd call your doctor who is familiar with your health history to discuss this issue.

Best,
