  • I take 25 -50mg about 2 hours before bedtime. It works very well to put me asleep and help keep me there. I have no side-effects the next day. I've taken these dosages almost everything night for over 2 years.

  • It makes you very sleepy so be sure to take it when you don't have to drive or go to work. There are better alternatives by prescription for hives and itchy skin.

  • I had a terrible allergy attack that affected my eyes. They were runny, itchy ,red and swollen. The condition worsened when I used prednisone drops , prescribed by my eye doctor then the conditioned became acute when she prescribed yet another type of eye drop. My eyes were swollen, itchy and and blood red,where the white used to be. I began taking Benadryl once tablet every six hours and within two weeks my eyes were almost back to normal. It works.

  • As a "before bed" sleep aid, I noticed fewer issues with the day-after hang-over feeling than with Trazadone. It seems to help a little with breathing with my CPAP as well.
