This answer was rated:

there can my son who is 17 take lemsip (paracemtamol) with Atarax? He has a terrible cold is sneezing continuously (he has ME/CFS and hypothyroidism) and he had two neurofen cold and flu at 8.00 this evening and then a lemsip at 11.00pm - he is desperate to sleep can I now give him two atarax 25mg?
. There should be no problem with his taking the Atarax at this point but I'd suggest just one instead of two.

thank you, ***** ***** take two because he wont sleep with just one we have tried this before insomnia with his ME and it has no effect.

No problem then--I was a little concerned that two along with the neurofen earlier might make him too drowsy. Hopefully two will get him to sleep
