Did you try Tylenol pm? Idk why it would not be considered safe, it's Tylenol and Benadryl. But, it may not work for you. It just really relaxes me, doesn't exactly put me to sleep. If that makes sense.
The tylenol PM might be worth a shot - the tylenol night help with the RLS.
I took tylenol pm for a few weeks, and when I called my Dr office to see if it was safe to take it WITH the sudafed for my cold, the nurse insisted that it was NOT safe and could harm my baby. Regardless of the fact that she found my statement from 2 weeks prior about taking it and no one said a word then! It did work for me, but they scared to daylights outta me! So I figured that Melatonin was a vitamin, so it has to be safe, right? WRONG!
That's really strange. All Tylenol PM is is acetaminophen and diphenhydramine; diphenhydramine is the generic for Benadryl and is also the active ingredient in some forms of Unisom. Both acetaminophen and diphenhydramine are safe during pregnancy. Unless you were using the multiplesymptom sudafed, which could double the acetaminophen dosage, there's no reason you shouldn't be able to take the Benadryl.
I take plain Benadryl occasionally, but I buy the generic diphenhydramine , because its less than half the cost of the brand name.
