  5. Can you get addicted to benadryl?
Asked: 2017-12-05 11:38:12
Ive had to take benadryl in order to fall asleep everynight for approximately the last six months. Is it possible that I will get addicted to it?

If you deal with the disease of addiction already, the disease part of your brain could push you to feel the need to take more, which is a sign of addiction. You may get addicted to benadryl physically, being unable to sleep without it and I guess its possible to become addicted mentally as well.

There is a significant amount of scientific research and studies that connect diphenhydramine aka Benadryl to impairment of cognition. This ultimately means that you or any body could get addicted to benadryl.
