Brief Answer:
Wait and Watch

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
Hi, I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern.
Benadryl is itself an anti allergic drug, but its not very uncommon to have allergy to anti allergic drugs.
Since you have consumed Benadryl, now you have to wait and watch as the treatment would depend on the symptoms , if you develop any.
In case in past you had a severe reaction to Benadryl, in that case you should see your doctor immediately, they would give you Intravenous Steroid shot.
This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any other query, you may please ask me.
Stay Healthy.

My husband has switched his Keppra and his Lamictal to the generic versions (Levetiracetam and Lamotrigine). It has been a couple of months now and he is not feeling well, running slight fever and sluggish. Last week he had a TIA. Could the generic versions of his meds be causing these problems?
