  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • For about four months I am often awakened with tachycardia. No other symptoms. I am able to go back to sleep almost immediately. I have just discontinued Advil pm caplet 1 to see if symptom goes away

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • The length of time I've struggled with sleep disorders has resulted in higher than normal Benadryl usage, but I wake up every day (after only a few hours of sleep) with my ears feeling plugged now. Benadryl is the only thing I have found to relieve the pressure, increasing my usage of the drug even more.
