A 28-year-old female asked:
What effects would diphenhydramine abuse have on a person who takes between 20-50 (25 mg) pills every night?

Reassurance : 25--50 mg Benadryl (diphenhydramine) daily for night sleep is not considered as abuse of medication and do not have significant side effects. But....you are young and please , make a break for 1-2-3 days to try sleep naturally .
