Can I take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and Dramamine together, I have seasonal allergies but I am also suffering with a slight inner ear issue that's making me nauseous?
SAME DRUG: BENADRYL (diphenhydramine) AND DRAMAMINE CONTAINE THE SAME ANTIHISTAMINE. IT IS IMPORTANT NOT TO TAKE TOO MUCH OF THE DRUG AS THEY ARE ANTICHOLINERGICS AND HAVE SIDE EFFECTS ( DRY MOUTH, URINARY RETENTION AND ACUTE ANGLE CLOSURE GLAUCOMA CAN OCCUR). IF YOU ARE HAVING INNER EAR PROBLEMS ASK YOUR DOC WHETHER YOU;D BE BETTER OFF WITH MECLIZINE. ...Read more

Another one I like to use is hydroxyzine (also known as Vistaril or Atarax) but that is only available as a prescription, however its metabolite is Zyrtec, which is OTC. ...Read more
I understand that one cannot become addicted to antihistamines, however, can't people become addicted to the sedating effects of drugs?
Tolerance: You become tolerant to the sedative effect of first generation antihistamines and with time you will no longer feel sedated from them.

If i take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) before getting on a plane, will the sedation from it help with my plane anxiety?
If I have developed resistance to benadryl's sedating effects( +/-150mg), will it still work4allergy?
Give it a try: Diphenhydramine (benedryl) is a very effective antihistamine, holding on to histamine binding sites better than some products. Its drawback other than sedation has been its limited duration of effect, eclipsed by products like zyrtec (cetirizine) that can last all day. Sedation is not a measure of its worth, only its ability to get into your brain and mess with neurotransmitters. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
