Brief Answer:
No need to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

Benadryl is a frequently used medicine and is well tolerated. Although increased sleepiness may occur, taking it at night often resolves the problem. Taking it along with losartan should not be a cause for concern.

You need not worry.

Let me know if I could help further.
