Sedating antihistamines and alcohol
To be on the safe side, you can ask your doctor or pharmacist how long to wait after you finish taking Benadryl before you reach for a drink.
Combining the drug with alcohol can cause dangerous effects, such as extreme drowsiness and impaired motor skills and alertness.
Benadryl is designed for short-term use, so it’s best to simply wait until you’re done taking it before you have any alcohol.
An antihistamine is a drug that interferes with the action of the compound histamine in your body.
Histamine is involved in your body’s immune response to allergens.
