- Is there a correllation between diphenhydramine usage and congestive heart failure?
I have been a diabetic for 15 yrs, insulin dependent for 8 yrs. I was diagnosed with CHF in July of 2012. I have had two more episodes where I have decompensated, the most recent at the time of this writing (7/6). I took 2 doses of 50 mg Benadyl each about 4=5 hrs. apart. I was fine last night when I went to bed, having taken all of my other meds as prescribed. I woke up with difficulty breathing, coughing up large amounts of red to pink frothy sputum. An increased dose of furosemide (160 mgs , morning, afternoon, and evening seems to have mostly eliminated the wet lungs, but I am still weak. I did have a positive tilt, no LOC but very dizzy., with BP's around 123/76, resting pulse of 110. I am curious if the Benadryl could have contributed to this episode.
