    The Benadryl given in large doses will knock you out due to
    anticholenergic side effects. These types of effects would basically result in decreased
    "processing" through your GI tract - Drymouth, constipation, etc.
    Being as though hydrocodone itself can cause constipation, you will
    have additive effects. If you are going to try it, I'd advise
    taking some Sennakot-S and some Colace with it so you aren't stuck on
    the crapper for the next month.



    I'm not sure why you want to take the two together - could you
    elaborate for me? It is true that very rarely people who overdose
    on Benedryl can get hallucinations (usually in children), but it's more
    likely you will have seizures instead. Or at best, just be
    knocked cold.



    Of course I'm overlooking the fact that you aren't using it for
    recreational purposes and you have allergies. If that's the case
    then, no, there shouldn't be any drug-drug interaction if the Benedryl
    is used as it is intended.

    As a recreational combo Benedryl and the various codones can
    be quite fun. I have personally used it with Percocet 5/325's. These are
    better as it keeps the amount of acetaminophen your liver has to deal with down.
    I am not talking about huge doses of Benedryl usually just the normal dose plus
    maybe 1 pill. In addition to a minor synergistic effect it keeps the itching
    caused by high-dose opiates down (which I get pretty bad). It also does
    help with the high not massively, but there is a much better feeling with the
    two Benedryl.




    IMHO a really great high is:


    <ul>
    [*]6-7 Percocet 5/325’s (substitute any strong opiate based
    pain med here and use the amount that works for you. Tolerances vary massively,
    so be careful)
    [*]2 Benedryl extra strength
    [*]1-2 Phenegren (Compazine) 12.5’s (this is a bit hard to find
    but is another anti-histamine used to treat nausea)
    [/list]
    The result is an unusually intense pain killer high with suppressed
    itchiness and no nausea. The two anti-histamines do really seem to increase the
    high in addition to suppressing the bad side effects. I find you get more
    mileage out of the pain-killers with these added drugs.











    I know several RN’s who call this combo the “secret high”,
    and there are some patients who request Benedryl with their pain meds. Maybe it
    is just the itching…
