Benadryl For Allergies Helped My Bm's

Recommended Posts

So I took a whopping 50mg of Benadryl Friday evening because my allergies were out of control. I took claratin-D in the morning before work per usual.  But unfortunately I am very allergic to rabbits (but they are so darn cute) and had to examine 6 rabbits Friday morning. When I got home from work I was so miserable I took Benadryl to help me sleep my symptoms away.

 

A lovely side-effect is that my BM's have been more normal than ever before (like High-Five normal!). Does this indicate a normal side-effect for benadryl or does this indicate I have a histamine issue?? I am just confused as to why this worked so well. I know many here are on low-histamine diets... does this mean I need to consider this as a possibility, too?? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

my seasonal allergies have cleared, so when i ran out of (generic) zyrtec, i wasn't in any big hurry to get more.  but my guts are happier on the antihistimine  :)  yes, i have noticed that.  i'm not ready to go full on low histaimine diet, although i have considered experimenting with a few (elimination diet) also, if i am having a particularly stressful day, and my insides go on 'freak out' mode, i have a script for xanax that i use <i break it into pieces and take a very small amount.  helps when everything is threatening to turn to goo.  i used to take claritan d in the morning and i am thinking starting that again just to see what happens :)

Oh my gosh, I thought I was the only person in the world who is allergic to rabbits.  Mine goes to mild anaphylaxis, though.  I guess that can't really be mild but never had my throat totally close up, LOL.  So I avoid bunnies.  They are all over our area and eat the weeds in my yard and entertain my cat when she sits in the window so as long as they stay away no cuddles I am good.  And I can make monty python jokes. Not too sure about the BM change with benadryl but what you said definitely sounds like a reasonable observation.  Maybe just pay attention to it the next few times you take it and see if the pattern stays and it wasn't just what you ate overall.

    Dear god yes lol, I have a corn allergy and the starch is hit miss if it triggers a reaction, but they could also be from rice, or tapioca....seriously they need to go the route of many shampoos/body washes that list the chemical/ingredient...
    since they just say "food starch" they could have made it from a cows arse for all i know. they need to just say what it comes from every time lol
    Here is the interpretation chart he sent me and yes I have 2 kids in which their pediatrician said they didn’t need to be tested unless they show symptoms which goes against everything I have read about symptoms being silent etc.... Is i...
