Let's talk about Benadryl!

Did you know that liquid Benadryl works faster than the pill or tablet form?

Do you have any in your pantry?

That's your assignment for this weekend, check your Benadryl supply.  It's one of those things that if you need it you need it immediately!

  1. We don't keep any over the counter drugs and hubby and I both have terrible reactions to it but I have seen how amazingly quick it can work for a child with a peanut allergy. It has been at least 25 years and I still can picture the horror of that child struggling to breathe and the quick relief after the dose was taken.

    1. Lana, some things make such an impression on us that we never forget. So glad that it worked for that child.

  2. Thank you for the reminder. As someone who is mildly allergic to bees, it's important that I have a "current" supply on hand at all times, as in not 3-years past expiration. :-)

    1. LOL, 3-years past expiration ... yep, I think I would replace it!

  3. Yes ma'am! I snagged a couple bottles at Dollar Tree. I keep one in the house and one in the first aid kit in the car. While I do have seasonal allergies for which I use Zyrtec, I keep both the pill and liquid form on hand in case of other types of allergic reactions.

    One day the husband was at work and an employee came in inquiring about Benadryl as he had come into contact with some chemical....and the office supply kit was out. Husband was always mildly humored by the kits, went out to the car and, yup, in his kit was Benadryl. :_)

    I never considered keeping the liquid for quickness, I kinda was thinking for kids who don't swallow pills well.

  4. I have a big bottle of pills in the home med cabinet, about a weeks worth in my purse, some in the car and the jeep's med kits and in our RV med kit and the hubs carries some in his work lunch box. Never tried the liquid.

  5. Didn't know that the liquid form works faster than pills. We have both liquid and pill form of Benadryl since a couple family members have allergies. It's one of those things that we make sure we always have on hand along with nasal spray and eye drops for allergies.

    1. Harvest Moon by Hand, allergies can sure give us a fit, can't they. It sounds like you have a good treatment plan!

  6. I no longer have Benadryl in the house. I am medication sensitive and cannot take Benadryl very well, but you are perfectly right it's key for others. I've also kept topical ointment with Benadryl in it on hand for bee stings and poison. I personally overreact to it and have a horrible inflammatory reaction but again, it's something that may come in handy for others.

  7. I don't have any in my medicine cabinet. I haven't thought about it or used it since my children were small. Is there an herbal substitute?

    1. Jeannie, that's a good question and I don't know the answer. Maybe someone else does and will tell us. Great questions!

    2. Hopefully it is something I can plant and grow in my yard. Wouldn't that be great!

    3. Not herbal but for insect bites use Lavender hydrosol and for sinus issues you can use Sinus Relief. Both are available from Hopewell Oils . com. Put a few drops of the sinus blend on a cotton ball and breathe it in.
