I have been losing,my hair for almost a month now. It falls out constantly in clumps. I have also had severe upset stomach. I was desperate to find answers, and I am so happy I found this website. I have been taking benadryl to prevent migraines and now believe this is what's causing the hair loss and stomach cramps. DOES THE HAIR GROW BACK WHEN YOU STOP TAKING BENADRYL???
Each time I've taken mucinex and mucinex dm I have not been able to achieve orgasm for at least 24 hours after the last dose. The larger the dose the longer the effects last. This has happened all four separate times I've taken this medication. I consider a "separate" time to be having stopped taking the medication for at least one month before taking it again. After 2-3 days of final dose I am back to normal, I do not have this problem normally.
