  • I seem to have more RLS when combining promethazine, methocarbomal, and/or diphenhydramine. Is this a problem for blood clots? About to start Seasonale and all birth control pills are warning about blood clots.

    I am a59 year old woman and I used benylin to help me though my cold symptoms , but instead of getting a good night sleep I ended up with the most severe restless leg syndrom.Years ago when I experienced menopausal insomnia I tried sleep aid and the same thing happened . I figured out that it is the ingredient Diphenhydramine Hydrochlorine . there shoul be a warning on the label . Can someone use this information to help people that experience rest less les syndrom.
