It depends: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) by itself can be used with people with hypertension with caution on short period of time, if combined with decongestants, then, no.

Yes : Antihistamines don't affect blood pressure. Don't take medicines that say "d" or contain pseudophedrine in addition to the benadryl (diphenhydramine).
