No: The amount of benadryl, (diphenhydramine) which is the part of that medicine that makes you drowsy, would be higher than the recommended amount to take.

No: The dosage is 2 tablets not 4. That is a lot of diphenhydramine.

Not Tylenol (acetaminophen): The PM part yes. But, taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) daily is extremely hard in the liver. Use the generic for Benadryl. That is what causes sedation.
