restless legs, benadryl, and sleep?
Allende posted:
I have bad allergies, so must take allergy medicine in the daytime, and benedryl at night- I've tried other allergy meds at night, but they keep me awake. Its worked well, but this year I've developed restless leg syndrome, which is so much worse with benadryl- and it keeps me awake a good part of every night. I'm exhausted! Should I try a sleeping pill- I know those are addictive- or is there another kind of nightime allergy pill I could take?
Any advice welcome! Thanks so much!
