Is it safe to take benadryl while taking vyvanse?

My 13 yo son takes vyvanse 40mg in the morning. He was just sitting at the table where he usually sits, chatting with me, and took a vyvanse now at 9:45 pm. He wasn t thinking... kind of on auto pilot as if it was a morning and he was at breakfast and I was tinkering around the kitchen. What can we do?? I just have him two Benadryl (he often will take that OR a melatonin for bedtime) I m worried about he will feel tomorrow...if he will sleep tonight

Hey, I recently took 30mg of vyvanse in a slow release capsule about 5 hours ago. I still feel wide awake and I really want to sleep tonight. I have stress induced insomnia and I am not prescribed any medication for it so I compensate with 125mg of benadryl . While this is not healthy by itself, I plan on taking 75mg of benadryl to counter act the vyvanse so i can sleep tonight. I just want to make sure I am not going to die if I take it or have another horrible side effect. This is a one time thing but I still want to make sure before I just go and take some pills.

i am almost 43, female, 170 pounds,having an elective surgery in 3 weeks, i only take birth control pills (9 years now) and tylenol/ibuprofen when on period, recently took for several months-over the counter (benadryl, allergy stuff for my severe allergies- round the clock) Prior to that was sick with needing antibiotics/inhaler for terrible cold, WELL- ALL MY LABS are beautiful, all normal. THE ONLY ONE slightly elevated (depending on the lab - ONE LAB range shows ALT/SGPT of 30-65/ another shows 7-56) so these would make MY ALT of 49 NORMAL.But the lab I went to show 2-45 making my 49 only 4 points over. I DO NOT DRINK, I am thinking since ALL MY OTHER labs are PERFECT esp the ones in relation to liver correlation, that perhaps the meds have done this?? I have had negative results for Hep B and HIV (drawn during my last pregnancy in 2010) so I am thinking perhaps this is elevated due to the over the counter stuff I took?? WILL THEY DENY my surgery over 4 lousy points if my HEALTH/HISTORY is otherwise PERFECT. based on the other posts, I feel perhaps it is medication. I can NOT see my Primary doc not clearing me for surgery just for 4 points.? thank you for your time
