Do you mean benadryl (diphenhydramine): Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is an antihistamine, but can be very sedating. If by doing the same thing you mean treating seasonal allergies then there are several anti-histamines that are usually not sedating, for example, fexofenadine, Loratadine and cetirizine. These are all available in various over the counter preparations. Please be sure to follow the package directions.

A 37-year-old member asked:

Since becoming pregnant, I am so drowsy it is affecting my work. Will this continue or get better? What can I do to help?

Get better soon: Most women will have severe fatigue in the first 3 months of pregnancy. For most, the tiredness will go away by 14 weeks. Giving in to the fatigue and taking naps or getting to bed early is the best idea.

Yes: Jacuzzis while pregnant are fine. Keep the temperature at a comfortable range....Probably no more than 101 degrees.

Will an identical twin often get the same disease as the other?

Dr. Nikolaos Zacharias

Not unless genetic.: Most identical twins actually have increasingly divergent life paths due to their encounters with various pathogens, toxins and environmental factors at variable succession and timings. Their genetic make-up may be identical, however their acquired immunity and responses to external stimuli are as different as with any two siblings.

Outsmart them!: To bed earlier. Try variety! eat with them! give them what tastes good like home made protein smoothies with fresh fruit juices and whey protein powder. Almond butter with toast. Avoid breakfast out of a box! make some turkey bacon. Play some upbeat music and get them going. Good luck!
A 45-year-old member asked:

What's the difference between fraternal and identical twins genes?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Nikolaos Zacharias
Maternal-Fetal Medicine 26 years experience
Different, same.: Fraternal (dizygotic) twins share 50% of their genes, just like any other siblings. Identical (monozygotic) twins typically have the same 100% dna profile, as if clones of one another.
