Brief Answer:
Take Benadryl

Detailed Answer:

Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I have reviewed your information fully, taking into consideration your kidney transplant. I will recommend Benadryl. Also, a few doses of Tylenol for headaches and pain wouldn't harm the kidneys.

I hope this helps. I wish you well.
