From this study (2 days ago):
I have a client with restless leg syndrome as well as being a coumadin patient who has trouble sleeping at night. She would like to know if diphenhydramine HCl has any bad side affects in combination or is it safe? She is 87 years old. 10 years ago, had triple by-pass surgery.
RNMommy on Mar, 8, 2014:
In response to the quest. about whether or not it's safe to give diphenhydramine to 87 y.o woman w/RLS whom is also on Coumadin:studies have been done that show that elderly patients can be @increased risk for developing dementia when taking diphenhydramine for insomnia...w/out factoring in comorbidities or meds. So err on the side of caution.
