What causes paradoxical reactions to benadryl (diphenhydramine). What mechanism ocurrs in the brain that makes the person stimulated rather than drowsy?

Unknown: I've never read an explanation. I'm sure there is one published but i doubt it's proven. It tends to happen more in children thus suggesting that there is inhibition of a disinhibitor. (i.E, mumbo-jumbo!). More to the point: if it happens to you, avoid further use. ...Read more

Last night i took two sleep tablets of 50 mg that contain diphenylamine.  Today i feel groggy, drowsy, and agitated.  What is happening in my brain and body and are there antidotes?

Modafinil: Provigil or nuvigil, indicated for sleep apnea, narcolepsy, and shift work disorder, are histamine activating which might counteract. In general, you should feel better and better as the day goes on. Be careful with driving and operating machines if you are drowsy, but it will be out of your system by tomorrow so don't worry too much. Drink plenty of water and keep moving. ...Read more

I may have a brain infection my eyes been red and my head been pressured for 7 weeks now I'm about to finish amoxicillin and I've felt drowsy and weak?

I may have a brain infection my eyes been red and my head been pressured for 7 weeks now I'm about to finish amoxicillin and I've felt drowsy and weak?

Definitely something: However, the fact that you can write a well structured question which also describes symptoms spanning 7 weeks, makes a brain infection (an encephalitis) unlikely. Certainly, if you suffered an infection, a post-infectious syndrome that includes weakness and fatigue, can occur and may take a long time to resolve. ...Read more

80+ female..second stroke.clot in brain.moving arms and legs but NT concious fr 2 days-since stroke.docs call It drowsiness. Wats the prognosis?

Fair: With every passing day, persistent lack of consciousness hints at a poor progrnosis. However, to provide you with an exact answer it would help to know exactly where in the brain the stroke occurred based on MRI. In addition, it would be helpful to know what type of treatment they are giving for the clot and exact neurological functions. Keep me posted on her progress. Talk to her neurologist ...Read more

What is the reason behind 1st generation antihistamine induce sleep ( by which mechanism cause sleepiness in our brain ) ?

Anticholinergic: First generation antihistamines block the h1 and h2 histamine receptors but also have some anticholinergic effects by partially blocking other receptors. This can lead to dry mouth, urinary retention, sedation and other side effects. This is usually dose dependent and worsens with high doses. ...Read more
