Can i cut diphenhydramine in half?

Depends

Cuts
Some diphenhydramine comes in capsules and some in solid pills. You can cut the pills but the capsules will just squish, break open and spill the contents. If capsules are all you have, you can dissolve the contents in water and drink half or something we do with patients at times is to mix it with jello and have them eat the proper amount.

Can I cut a diphenhydramine in half?

Tabs, yes

Benadryl
It is not practical to cut a capsule, but a scored tablet can be easily cut with a pill cutter. There are many formulations of diphenhydramine in case a lower than usual dose is required.

No

Diphenhydramine helps restless and anxiety through it's antihistamine activity, much like vistaril. It is not addictive, but if you are taking it several times daily you could find yourself having some withdrawal symptoms like runny nose.

Dr. Brant R. Ward answered:

Does diphenhydramine have sugar in it?

Maybe...

Diphenhydramine
It depends on the manufacturer of the pills you are taking. The drug itself does not contain sugar, but some manufacturers use sugars or other types of agents to 'bind' the medication--to help make it keep the shape of a pill or dissolve more slowly, for example. Ask your pharmacist about the brand you are taking, or contact the manufacturer for more information about the inert ingredients.
