is it safe to take benadryl every few days? anyone else ever have this?

Just wondering if anyone else ever had this side effect, it sometimes seems like the morning after I take it I see white snow kind of in my vision . I already have a small catteract and I know benadryl can sometimes cause them so I only ever take it when really needed, which is at least twice a week but the vision thing is worrying me a bit, does anyone else ever experience white snow like vision after taking it??

  • ive never had that happen. Sometimes i take benadryl to help me sleep. I would talk to your doctor about it.

  • I agree, you need to talk to your Dr about that. I took Benadryl everyday for a month because I broke out into hives 3 times a day. I didn't have any side effects like that.

  • The only side effect I see from Benadryl is extreme drowsiness. My daughter takes it a lot in the spring/summer/fall because she's allergic to poison ivy, oak and sumac.

  • I've taken benedryl for most of my life. Never had any side effects like that. I take it at night to sleep.
