An Ode to Benadryl

Benadryl - of thee I sing!
A sleep-filled night to me you bring.
O little capsule, white and pink,
A miracle you are, I think.

Benadryl - no minuses -
You've dried up drippy sinuses
My nose, no longer doth it run
For you, your mighty works hath done.

Benadryl - it's crazy,
But you truly have dazed me.
And now I close these thoughts so deep,
And lay me down, and back to sleep.

Ah yes, "Diphenhydramine". The stuff that makes the world function again.

I keep a big bottle in both medicine cabinets as well as in the car. I've also used Benadryl right after getting bee stings, or when I have itching I think is allergic-related.

Hope you feel better soon!

hmmm.... Sounds like I should make a switch from pseudo-ephedrine to Benadryl. It sounds like much more fun.

Katey - Amen! And long shall I sing its praises.

Let us read from the Physician's Desk Reference, Chapter 3...

Lil - Diphenhydramine - I was really having trouble fitting that into my rhythm. Hope the trade name was good enough.

hb - I'm afraid I can't blame the medication(s) for my behavior of late. I'm just wacky.

Kat - Thank you! I live for cute.

saint - I thought from the 1st line you were writing an ode to a plumber.

But then, you did say "little" crack...

Fly - Seasonal allergies on this end of the wire. I like the Quil family too, but Nyquil gives me a nasty hangover anymore.

Maybe it's the fact that I mix it with tequila to kill the taste...

saddletramp - I love to make a lady smile; thank you!

There are other responses I like just as well; but smiles are good!

I don't think you're meant to drink the whole bottle

Albert - ...which would explain why I've been sleep-posting the last few days. Surely these blog delays have just been a bad dream.

There's no place like, there's no place like

MissAnn - Wasn't ignoring you; your response didn't pop up until after the others (aren't we shocked when that happens 'round here}. Yeh, semi-phed doesn't cut it for me anymore.

...and Hardly knows cold and allergy relief.
