Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year 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.
