Benadryl Allergy and Allergy to Benadryl
Posted by Shifrah on Friday, May 02, 2008

Benadryl Allergy is among the most popular OTC allergy medications. It is used to relieve runny noses; sneezing; itchy, watery eyes; and itchy throats. Side effects of the drug include drowsiness and possible excitability. Care should be taken when taking Benadryl Allergy and driving or operating machinery. In addition, alcoholic drinks should be avoided while taking the medication; alcohol, sedatives, and tranquilizers may increase the side effect of drowsiness. An overdose of Benadryl Allergy may cause liver damage - make sure to get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center immediately if overdose occurs.

Ironically, some people seem to have experienced an allergy to Benadryl itself. Reported symptoms include hives, welts, rashes, and swelling. Although it is (remotely) possible to have a reaction to the active ingredient in Benadryl, a reaction to additives in the Benadryl Allergy capsule is more likely. Additives include coloring and the excipient component (the substance used as a carrier of the active ingredients) of the medication. If the coloring is the culprit causing the reaction, forms of Benadryl without dye are available. Be sure to discuss any suspected allergies with your doctor.
Allergic reactions to Benadryl Allergy are most often due to additives such as dye.
