Does Benedryl make you hungry?


Recommended Posts

I have an off-and-on runny nose this time of year that I assume is some kind of allergy, so I take Benedryl a few nights a week just to turn off the faucet. It doesn't make me sleepy, and it doesn't make me hungry.

Yes, absolutely. The reason seroquel makes people so hungry is because it blocks histamine. This is also how benadryl works. Seroquel (low dose for agitation/insomnia) is like a souped up benadryl. Histamine blocker, sedates you, lowers all alerting neurotransmitters, but it will also make you hungry as hell.

I thought about this connection. It makes me soooo hungry and once I've eaten I just wanna eat more and more. It takes about a day to wear off.
