Hello Ericabwells,

Thank you for visiting

Erica, the normal dosage is 5-7.5 mg at bedtime. If I have understood you correctly, you have taken 20 individual tablets of 7.5 mg each. Additionally, you took some benadryl.


You have taken an overdose! URGET! This is a life-threatening emergency.

Be well,
Dr. Kimberly
