Sleep quality: A small amount of alcohol may not affect your sleep. Many - but not all - people feel groggy after taking benadryl (diphenhydramine). Vyvanse can interfere with sleep so you may get more sleep when you take benadryl (diphenhydramine). Be careful about mixing alcohol and stimulant medication (vyvanse).
