23 patient evaluations for Diphenhydramine

May 19, 2012 (Started Apr 26, 2012)

  • Effectiveness
    Can't tell (for chemical/venom allergy)
  • Side effects
    Mild (vivid nightmares)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 25 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I started taking this to help with sleep and possibly with my dry skin (allergies). I don't think it helped with skin. And it seemed to me that my nightmares / hypnopomia were worse with the diphenhydramine. So I stopped it. Not a big deal either way.
