I took 24 hour extended release non drowsy sudafed at

Patient : I took 24 hour extended release non drowsy sudafed at 330pm yesterday and have yet to sleep or feel tired. today at 9pm so about 30 hours after taking sudafed I took 0.5mg lorazapam prescribed for anxiety induced insomnia. am I at risk for serious interaction I am still not tired.
Symptoms:  Cannot sleep and its causing anxiety
Doctor :   Hello, Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com I understand your concern. Since 24 hours have elapsed, and the n you took Lorazepam, there is no risk of any interaction. However, you can sleep longer than usual in the following couple of days because the extended-release tablets are very slowly metabolized. Hope this was helpful, Regards
