Pros:takes care of the sniffles, helps you fall asleep
Cons:can't take it during the day
Years ago when I still thought they allergist could actually find a cure for my inexplicable hives, I tried taking Benadryl to see if maybe my hives were some kind of allergy-related condition. So I took Benadryl, and no change in the hives. But it did make me rather sleepy. I didn't take Benadryl again for a while.

Enter my trip to San Francisco this year with my fiance and my mother-in-law-to-be. The three of us shared a hotel room (don't EVEN get me started on that) and I got more of a taste of what I'll have to go through in married life. My honey snores. Rather loudly. And nudging him to get him to roll over onto his side just didn't work either. He was pretty much immobile once he fell asleep, and trying to get him to move was like trying to push a tree - a very large tree - like a sequoia or something. (Don't you love the phenomenon of dead weight?)
He would snore all night and keep me awake. No matter how truly exhausted I was, I could not fall asleep. I looked horrid from lack of sleep.
So how does Benadryl play into the picture, and how can I call it a cure for snoring? Well, I kind of exaggerated a bit.
After two nights next to the snore machine, Tom's brother and sister-in-law (whom we were visiting) suggested stopping by the drug store to pick something up, like a sleeping aid or something. Well, something about my body prevents sleeping aids form having an effect on me. Unisom, Simply Sleep - they just don't work. So I suggested Tom should get some of those Breathe Right breathing strips - to keep him from snoring - and Tom's mom suggested that I get some Benadryl - to help me sleep.
Well, the Breathe Right Strips helped keep him from snoring. They didn't stop it completely, but they helped quiet the machine. But the problem was, they kept falling off in the middle of the night, and I'd be sleeping next to a buzz saw again.
But have no fear! The Benadryl worked WONDERS for me. It helped to get me to sleep within 20-30 minutes (it can take me upwards of an hour to fall asleep most nights) and helped KEEP me asleep. It was absolutely marvelous. Plus, it stopped the nighttime runny nose and sniffles that I didn't even notice I had until I didn't take the Benadryl one night. Whenever I took Benadryl, no sniffles. If I decided I could do without for one night, the sniffles came back. So it does work for its intended purpose - to treat allergy symptoms. It just also helps you sleep.
But that must also serve as a warning. NEVER take Benadryl in the morning, unless you plan to be housebound for the day. NEVER take it before driving a car or operating machinery. That's not just a silly warning on a box - this is powerful stuff.
So if you get the nighttime sniffles, and/or you have a snoring spouse - BENADRYL ALLERGY is just the thing for you!
