Bad thing?

The nurse didn't give me Tylenol and Benadryl ahead of my infusion and I didn't say anything. Is that bad? I usually get it ahead of time.
It depends but benedryl is usually for allergic reactions if it's just a precaution you be ok if you are known to be allergic you need to tell them

If you came through the infusion okay then everything is fine. You didn't really need the drugs. They were just a precaution.
I don't take them before my infusions. Maybe did when I first started, but more and more evidence now that they are not needed and people aren't getting the infusion reactions like with Remicade.
