[FONT="Georgia"][COLOR="DarkRed"]Benedryl is often used as a sleep aid (it's the "P.M." in Tylenol PM). If it makes you fall asleep it's not surprising. Claritin is available over the counter; it is non-sedating and still works well for most people.

You may have a dust mite allergy, those are the bed/carpet/pillow bugs. They are invisible to the naked eye, so you can't see them to clean 'em up. Best bet: wash your bed linens regularly, vacuum your mattress (yes, it really works), and keep the carpet in your room clean (if you can't remove it entirely). If this stuff works, along with antihistamines, you'll know where your allergy comes from.[/FONT]
