Is it safe to take one 25mg Benadryl (diphenhydramine) capsule solely as a sleep aid? Insomnia for a week, taking a toll on my physical and emotional well being.
Yes . One week should be okay. As long as the package inserts are followed. In the long term you'll benefit most from educating yourself about proper sleep hygiene as opposed to a quick fix with pills.
Benadryl (diphenhydramine) On "as needed" basis , and under guidance by your doctor.
