If I take benadryl (diphenhydramine) every night to sleep and dont get any side effects like dry mouth, will taking hydroxyzine give me dry mouth? Bad taking everyday?

May be. Side effects are unpredictable, hydroxyzine is rather a stronger antihistamine than Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) you don't want to combine them unless under doctor's supervision. As for taking hydroxyzine daily, some do but again under doctor's advice and supervision. Tolerance can develop, meaning that you have to increase the dose to get the same effect, best wishes.

I am taking Benadryl (diphenhydramine) with minimal side effects only light sedation. Going to try hydroxyzine. Will I get more side effects than Benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

Maybe... I only found one head to head comparison and the study was small. Seems that hydroxyzine has more "anti-itch" effect. The side effects were similar. In a non-scientific website surveying users, seems that Hydroxyzine had more reported side effects. I would like to know what kind of effect are you looking for. They both have some similar and different actions. Read more...
