  • 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.
  • 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 .

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.

  • Rash from eating kale
    I ate kale for the first time on Monday. I only had a small bowl of fresh mixed green salad, so it wasn't entirely Kale. By Tuesday, I had a small rash on my left hip. I ignored it at first. Thursday evening, I decided to eat a large kale salad with other veggies and salmon, all of which I have eaten regularly aside from kale. Friday morning, my entire body was covered in the same rash that appeared Tuesday. I went to the ER. The doc said it was some type of allergic reaction. The ONLY thing I did/consumed different was the kale. I can't find much about it's reactions, though.
