Questions About Robitussin And Benadryl

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I think I'm having my first ever brain fog. I was sick all last week, and I took either Robitussin or Benadryl nightly so I could sleep. It has been three nights since I last had anything, and I still feel like I can't shake the cobwebs out of my head. It feels like I OD'd on Benadryl or something. Do these have gluten? I just can't figure this out, because I've never had "brain fog" as a symptom--at least not that I was aware of....

I know Benadryl is gluten-free, I checked a couple of weeks ago. I think Robitussin is gluten-free as well, just can't find the info.

Could you have the brain fog from the medicine? I only ask because I feel like that when I take the Benadryl.

Feel better soon!

I hope it wasn't Robitussin CF...not to scare you, but i resceived the following message from a friend today:

DRUG RECALL INFORMATION This is not new but very important

drug boxes and inquire about a REFUND Please read this

CAREFULLY. Also, please pass this on to everyone you know.

STOP TAKING anything containing this ingredient. It has been

linked to increased hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in brain) < /STRONG>

They are asking you to call them at 800-548-3708 with

the lot number on the box so they can send you postage for you

to send it back to them, and they will also issue you a

refund. If you know of anyone else with small children,

PLEASE PASS THIS ON. THIS IS SERIOUS STUFF!

DO PASS ALONG TO ALL ON YOUR MAILING LIST so people are

informed. They can then pass it along to their families.
