Benadryl (Diphenhydramine)

Benadryl or Diphenhydramine generic is an over-the-counter antihistamine medicine that is taken to treat the symptoms of allergies and the common cold. Diphenhydramine, the active ingredient in Benadryl works by blocking the natural effects of a chemical in your body called histamine. It is this chemical that is sent as an immune response when your body perceives a threat. When taken as directed, Benadryl can reduce your itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, and runny nose and bring relief for other cold-related symptoms as well as calm down the rash and itching from hives.

It is the effects of histamine in your body that causes your nose to run, your eyes water, and you sneeze and itch. This is how your immune system helps to get rid of what is thought of as an intruder. Antihistamines do not stop your body from producing histamine, but rather, it blocks the effects. Benadryl and Diphenhydramine generic are also effective for treating motion sickness and inducing sleep. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

One of the side effects of taking Diphenhydramine is drowsiness which could be a hazard if you plan on driving or operating machinery. Ask your pharmacist about other known side effects and make certain that current medical conditions and other OTC or Rx drugs you take will not interfere with or react negatively to taking Benadryl.
