In brief: It may be harmful

It may be harmful to take 200mg of Diphenhydramine a night, since the recommended dose is 25-50mg a night.
That means it is time to work with one's primary care doctor to see what the sleeping problem is all about. The doctor may refer one to a sleep doctor or other specialist as needed.
