I took two Benadryl's and now my body can't stop jolting up?

Some people: Get a paradoxical reaction to benadryl (diphenhydramine). Whereas it makes most people tired, it can make some jittery. The effects should fade in 4-6 hours. Make sure to tell any health care providers about this reaction in the future. It is not an allergy, but they will want to know to anticipate it before giving you the medicine if you need it. Hope this helps! ...Read more

50 mg total: You can take a total of 50 mg up to every 4 hours.

All the over-the-counter strengths I've ever seen are 25 mg, so you can take 2 of those. ...Read more

If my Benadryl (diphenhydramine) contains phenylephrine is it not a good idea to take two tablets for sleep?

Drop phenylephrine: Find a product that does not contain the phenylephrine. For most people, that med is stimulating and will make you stay awake, not help you sleep. Make sure you also use good sleep hygiene - bedtime routine, minimize distractions around you, warm milk, and consider melatonon for sleep aid rather than more and more benadryl (diphenhydramine). ...Read more

I gave my eight year old daughter (75lbs) two tablets of Benadryl (50mg) and my husband put Benadryl cream on her. Do I need to worry?

May be sedating: The Benadryl cream is not a problem because it is not absorbed. If you gave 2 of the 25 mg pills (its usual form) for a total of 50, the dose is a bit higher than I would use but not dangerous. She will likely be very groggy for the 4-6 hours it is in effect. If you gave her 100 mg total you need to call poison control. ...Read more
