Unusual observation with Benedryl
I was diagnosed with ADHD about three years ago. My diagnosis is ADHD combination type noted as with severe inattention and hyperactive. I live in Texas and allergy season has kicked in. Today I bought generic benedryl for my allergy symptoms and noticed something I thought was maybe unique and I am wondering if anyone else has had the same experience. I have often wondered and asked my former doc if a med existed that would slow me down and not put me to sleep. Each day my mind is working 24/7, some days it is so bad I literally feel like I’m going insane! It is absolutely frustrating and all I want is peace and quiet within myself. My former doc said there is no such meds. I currently take Dextroamphetimine and Xanax. After taking the benedryl I did become a little drowsy but not to where I wanted to sleep like when I take the Xanax. But something else happened. For the remainder of the day I found my peace and quiet. It was great!
