Discussions that mention benadryl

There's your problem. Alot of people react to allergy medications, myself included. If I take an antihistamine I stay up for at least a day. If you have problems with coughing try Benadryl instead, it should actually help you to sleep and not give you insomnia.
Oh,. Thanks. :)

Yesterday I only used the cough syrup and was able to get to sleep by about 1am, only I kept waking up every 20 minutes or so and then falling back to sleep quickly... so each time I woke up I thought it would be morning.

One other Winter I took some day and night flu tablets and the night time ones were good because they made you feel sleepy. I might get some of those, as well as some Benadryl for the cough, next time I need it again.

Thanks for the suggestions.
