Lot of meds: If you were cleaning, and exposed to dust mites that you might be allergic to, it's better if you can use lubricating eye drops, or something non-medicinal to help you. Even showering and washing your hair to remove the dust mite exposure would be very beneficial. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will have a drying effect on your mucous membranes, and make you feel drowsy. With so much medications on board, sometimes less is more.
