I took 2 ibuprofen pm (500 mg) for back pain

Patient

Q: I took 2 ibuprofen pm (500 mg) for back pain to help me sleep, I also took a Benedryl tab. They both make me sleepy which I didn't think about. Will I be right?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Welcome to ATD.Thank you for the query.

Benadryl is an antihistamine.It may cause dizziness or drowsiness.

Moreover, the combination of diphenhydramine [benadryl] and ibuprofen is used to treat occasional insomnia associated with minor aches and pains.

Hope that you get it right now. Take care.
