Sedating antihistamines and alcohol Omani youngporn
But if you really want to get a good night’s sleep, don’t make the mistake of thinking a glass of wine and a dose of Benadryl will do the trick.
This misuse of Benadryl and alcohol may actually make you dizzy and prevent you from sleeping through the night.
This includes beverages, mouthwashes, and other drugs that list alcohol as an ingredient.
To be on the safe side, you can ask your doctor or pharmacist how long to wait after you finish taking Benadryl before you reach for a drink.
Benadryl is approved to treat allergy symptoms only. However, some people may think it’s a good idea to use it as a sleep aid. In fact, the generic form of Benadryl, diphenhydramine, is approved as a sleep aid.
Some people may think alcohol can serve the same role, since it can also make you sleepy.
If you’re dealing with a runny nose, uncontrollable sneezing, or red, watery, and itchy eyes, you likely only want one thing: relief.
Thankfully, there are a range of over-the-counter (OTC) drugs that work well to treat seasonal allergies (hay fever). Benadryl is the brand-name version of an antihistamine called diphenhydramine.
Benadryl doesn’t affect your liver like alcohol does. This can cause drowsiness, sedation, and trouble doing physical and mental tasks that require alertness.
But both drugs work on your central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of your brain and spinal cord. In short, Benadryl and alcohol shouldn’t be used together.
