Excedrin PM does not contain aspirin, therefore it does not work for muscle aches. In fact, some of the side affects for Excedrin PM include muscle aches.

Can you take Excedrin PM for a headache at 12 am if you took Phentermine 12 hours earlier?

Yes. Excedrin PM (unlike its cousins - the other Excedrins) does not contain caffeine. It contains diphenhydramine (Benadryl) to help you fall asleep. So it will not react with Phentermine, which is a stimulant. Phentermine stays in the system a long time. 16-31 hours is its half-life (which means it might take more than full day to work out of your system). So be careful in the daytime with other stimulants.

Can you take excedrin and benadryl together?

Only if you stay within the recommended dosage. They both contain diphenhydramine. Excedrin PM you can not exceed 2 per night(or in a day) and if you were to take benadryl with it you would be exceeding the recommended dosage. If you took 1 of each in a day you would be OK. I was taking 2 Excedrin PM per day along with 2-3 Benadryl and my eyes became extremely dry and it was hard getting through the day. Once medications stopped eyes slowly started to get better. This is only a minor complication though. There are serious side effects if the dosage is not followe.
