Geno (2 years ago):

I have been taking benadryl for 3 years with absolutely no apparent side effects.....I only take one 25mg tab and it keeps me from waking after 4 hours of sleep.....it gets me 7-8 hours of solid sleep. I have gone 3-4 days without taking it and I sleep fine for about 4 nights and then sleep better if I take a tablet. The only side effect is that I am very rested and happy during the day.

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Noticed a significant drop in lung function and much more mucus to cough up about six months ago. This has made it difficult to cough up. Other conditions are better with medications.

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • Pattern of usage
    I have used Nytol before over the years. I usually only have this for one or two nights when suffering from insomnia over a number of days (i.e. desperate). If my sleep patterns are really out of kilter, I may take for up to 5 days, but I haven't done that for some years. On this occasion, I have taken the drug twice this week, although with a few days in between the two doses.

    Current timing
    Having taken the pill with water at about midnight, I awoke at about 5 a.m. with the symptoms mentioned.
