FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: BENADRYL

User Comments:


For Allergic Reactions “If you have problems with Benadryl, try the dye free one. I’m wildly allergic to FD&C Red #40 and must use dye free. Dye free works well for me.”

For Allergic Rhinitis “I have allergic rhinitis. Was prescribed Zyrtec, Allegra and Flonase and I couldn’t get relief. A pharmacist suggested Benadryl and its the only med that works. Took a generic brand and all hell broke loose. Went back to the original and I’m feeling much better.”

For Nausea/Vomiting “ER gave me 25mg diphenhydramine IV for nausea. The only effect was delirium and a brief medication nap. I felt woozy and poisoned for at least two hours afterwards. It may work for others, but it certainly didn’t help me.”

For Nausea/Vomiting “I take Methotrexate weekly 25mg and have found that taking Benadryl at dose and 12 and 24hrs after my weekly dose help reduce the nausea”

For Allergic Rhinitis “I have a lot of allergies. About a year ago I began taking benadryl at night to help me sleep. It also helped a lot with the allergies. I only take it at night because of the drowsiness. Recently my stomach was upset for a month and I noticed they’ve begun putting calcium in it!This is so upsetting! Calcium stimulates stomach acid and people with allergies are sensitive to acid. This has been documented in the allergy journal.I would have thought a pharma company would know better than this!I wish the two corp. drugstores in my area had a better selection of drowsy antihistamines. They mostly have only benadryl. CVS has chlorphen, but it has lactose in it. 🙁 For now I’m making do with a Walgreens combo that includes chlorphen.”
