Discussions that mention benadryl

Allergies board

My body cannot tolerate even the smalles amount of benadryl. It really dries me out, gives me headaches, and leaves me feeling hung over in the AM. It's a med I try to avoid.

I have the same (or even worse problem) with Claritin. Miserable headaches.

Everyone reacts differently.

If what you're doing is doing the trick, then I'd say stick with it.
