Also, the reason for the symptoms should be addressed in an effort to prevent symptoms. ...Read more

Probably OK: If you have had less than 2 drinks, it is probably ok to take a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) knowing that it may make you more drowsy. I certainly would not advise driving your car home however until you know for sure how much the combination may affect your mental alertness. ...Read more
