I've been outside a lot the last couple days because it's so nice and the deck positively sparkles.  This led to some hay fever, and so last night I took a Benadryl.

Oof.  It feels like wading through molasses.  I made a joke about a "Benadryl hangover" but it seems that's a real thing.  Blog later.

The active ingredient in Benadryl - - diphenhydramine - - is also used in over-the-counter sleep meds such as Tylenol PM, so pronounced is the drowsiness it causes.

The 2nd generation of over-the-counter antihistamines - - Zyrtec, Allegra and Claritin - - won't cause drowsiness, but are more expensive, and you'll have to experiment to find which one works best for your symptoms.
