Best not : Benadryl (diphenhydramine) adversely effects your brain exactly where your adhd impacts it. It decreases your awareness and temporal sequential ordering. Best to use a second generation antihistamine for chronic use against allergies. If you're using Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for sleep, stop and consult your physician for a better alternative.
