  • Sids/benedryl infant stopped breathing
    We are devastated. Our grand daughter was being breastfed and mother only took 1 tablet of Benedryl 25 mg and healthy baby girl died of SIDS following morning. Any information is appreciated.
  • Diphenhydramine and mental acuity
    For at least 10 years, I have taken diphenhydramine 50 mg. at bedtime for insomnia and allergies. The results have been that I sleep well with no hangover or any cognitive impairment. If I experience vertigo from allergies, I may take an additional 50 mg. but never exceeding 100 mg in a 24 hour period.

    After reading the report regarding an Alzheimer's study finding that after taking as little as 4mg diphenhydramine daily for more than 3 years, dementia rates were high.

    I stopped the diphenhydramine one night. I experienced symptoms of deep brain pulsating pain and severe insomnia. After 4 hours, I took 50 mg diphenhydramine and slept very well. The next night I took 37.5 mg. diphenhydramine, slept very well. However, some of my tasks require layers of mental challenges in which I became slower.

    My question is how did the study recipients obtain 4 mg doses of diphenhydramine when the standard over-the-counter (OTC) availability in tablets is 25 mg? How reliable is the information submitted from the study subjects? What manufacturer's diphendramine was used, or were there several?

    I felt sharper mentally when on 50 mg daily than so far on 37.5 mg.
  • Imitrex and vasomotor rhinitis
    I have vasomotor rhinitis that triggers migraines. I am sinsitive to smells and the air feels so thin that it triggers a migraine every time. So when i get a migraine of course i take my imitrex. So i got to thinking, if imitrex is a vaso constrictor then it should work on my vasomotor rhinitis, which means that my sinuses are dilated. So now when i feel my vasomotor rhinitis acting up, i have gone ahead and taken my imitrex and it has actually prevented a migraine. I now use my imitrex as treatment for my masomotor rhinitis. Lucky for me it may be once a month that i have to treat it.
  • Dyphenhydramine and headaches horrible going one almost 24 hours a day for 4 weeks and cant get them to stop, now looking for cause . think its the dyphenhydramine im taking to help me sleep .
    have been taking 3 dyphenhydramine for some time to help me sleep , just in last few weeks began having severe headache almost all the time.. cant get it to go away. just found out it can cause headache and am going to lower my intake to one per night and see if my headaches get better. am taking migrane meds and that hasnt helped a bit so think its not migranes im having. some other reason.
  • Nightmare on benadryl
    After 5 nights without sleep and not having past bad dreams, the last 2 night's taking walfrin sub, for benadryl has terrified THE WORST OF WORST dream in my 55 years. Peaceful start of a dream then seeing myself or family,friends get slottard.crazy thing is I don't watch scary movies or the news. I think I'm going to pass on this meds, and pass out next time :) thank you,God bless
