I just drank a bottle of sake but my allergies are killing me and I can't sleep. Would it be safe take to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

In brief: Alcohol and sleep

Alcohol depresses the central nervous system (CNS).
I would not recommend taking any other CNS depressant on top of alcohol. I would not advise taking benadryl (diphenhydramine) after drinking a bottle of sake.

In brief: Yes if sober

And have no other contraindication for benadryl, (diphenhydramine) take the lowest dose, if no improvement call your doctor
