Hello Folks,

Benadryl or it's generic "diphenhydramine" will indeed help with sleep deprivation. I have been taking anywhere from 100-200mg over the past few years, without negative side effects. As a money saving tip, NEVER purchase BENADRYL. Diphenhydramine (25mg) works just as well, and will cost you $4.99 (USD) per 100 tabs (brand name BENADRYL in some instances will be double the cost). Also, some of the leading OTC sleep meds are just diphenhydramine "dressed up in a colorful and consumer friendly box." Do your homework in the sleep aid aisle and check the active ingredients before making your purchase.

I personally would NEVER take Tylenol PM (combination of 500mg Acetaminophen and 25mg Diphenhydramine) just to sleep well. Taking 8 Tylenol PM caplets - just to get the 200 mg of diphenhydramine for sleep - means you would be ingesting 4000MG. OF TYLENOL!Hepatatoxicity (liver failure) is common at high dose Acetaminophen ingestion, and Tylenol / Acetaminophen overdose is responsible for more ER visits than any other medicine on the market.


Do you take it every night? You haven't found that your body has become less responsive to Diphenhydramine after taking it for so long?
