Benadryl Dizziness Causes and Reviews


When you're dizzy, you may feel lightheaded, woozy, or disoriented. If you feel like you or the room are spinning, you have vertigo. These feelings may make you lose your balance.

Dizziness can have many different causes. A sudden drop in blood pressure or being dehydrated can make you dizzy. Many people feel lightheaded if they get up too quickly from sitting or lying down. Certain medicines and problems with your inner ear may cause Dizziness. So can motion sickness. Sometimes Dizziness can be a symptom of other disorders.

As people get older, they may have more health problems and take more medicines. This makes them more likely to have problems with Dizziness and balance.

Dizziness usually gets better by itself or is easily treated. If you are dizzy often, you should see your health care provider to find the cause.

Benadryl Dizziness Reviews

Sun, 04 Sep 2011

Can I die from taking this many. Is it physicly addicting? Sorry about my spelling.

Mon, 18 Jul 2011

I loved these strips. I have had allergic reactions to my own allergy shots. After waiting at the Dr.'s office for 15 minutes after my allergy shot, I leave to go shopping. Sometimes I can feel a little thickening in my throat, similar to when I've had a really bad reaction and had to go to the ER for help, or went back to the Dr.'s office for a shot of epinepherine. When I feel just a small reaction beginning, I have put one of the Benadryl Quick Dissolve Strips on my tongue. I get a pretty fast result and I can continue shopping rather than worrying about a worse reaction.

Now, when I went to buy more of this product, it isn't available at any local stores, or on line at safe sites. Each store tells me that people are coming in and wanting them and getting upset when they can't find them.

Why were these strips taken off the market?

Does taking too much Benadryl cause a person to fall asleep and not wake up?

Thu, 24 Mar 2011
My son is allergic to children's Benadryl. It causes him to develop eye infections (conjunctivitus).
Sat, 30 Apr 2011
I've noticed that it when I am with my partner it makes me sensitive, but I am not able to be aroused. Is anyone else having the same issue. I've been taking it for alergies since I was a teenager. Its the only thing that has ever worked for me.
