How it worksWhen confronted with an allergen, your histamines trigger sneezing, coughing, and other symptoms to push the allergens away. Diphenhydramine (an antihistamine) tells your histamines to settle down.
Allergist AdviceDiphenhydramine can cause drowsiness and sedation. Do not combine it with other sedating medications or alcohol.
