Suggest Dosage For Benadryl
The most appropriate dosage of Benadryl for sleeplessness is 25 mg. This does can sometimes cause other symptoms such as dry mouth. Also it may cause some sleepiness the next day after taking the medication. This should only last for a couple of hours at most.
Some patients will take 50 mg of Benadryl at bedtime but I would not suggest doing this unless specifically advised to buy your primary care physician. As you might expect with a higher dose of medication you can expect more prevalent side effects.
Once again the generally excepted starting dose of Benadryl for sleeplessness is 25 mg in a single dose. You can expect medication to start work after about 30 minutes.
Thank you again for sending your question.
