Benadryl Hangover

Anyone else ever get the Benadryl Hangover? I had a doozy of an allergy problem yesterday and took two last night about 10:00. I drug my butt out of bed at 9:45 this morning and have been in a dull daze ever since. Even after the hour and a half nap I took. Benadryl always does this to me, but I just keep taking it. So, anyone does anyone else ever have thier butt kicked by the little pink pill?

Go to the pharmacy and pick up a box of sleeping pills and compare the active ingredient in that with Benadryl. Its the same thing

Nyquil, yes. I took a full dose one night to try and get some sleep. The next morning, it was like I was drunk. Walking around in the dark was unsteady, and I just wanted to go back to bed, but couldn't because I had to go to work. All day, I was in some sort of fog or haze.

Now I have gone back to a half dose.

The best thing for a hangover is the hair of the dog. Chug more as soon as you wake up.

I cannot take benadryl for that reason.. I feel like utter crap when I wake up in the morning and cannot get going or even have the motivation to get ready..

I just take a daytime antihistamine but it never seems to work as well but I dont get that benadryl sleepy feeling in the morning..

Did you read the small print: "Do not operate heavy machinery or shoot your XD while on Benadryl."

I don't take Benedryl, but I do give it to my mutt when she decides to be too active at night, keeping me awake. Works like a charm.

Yes, I know the feeling. A dopey, spaced out tired feeling that drags on most of the working day. Hated it.

You'll only take Benedryl ONCE before you go to work. Then...you'll realize that its great right before bed...but terrible if you have a day full of serious things to do.
