I think I have developed an addiction to Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride.A few yrs ago when my father passed away I needed temporary help sleeping.I did not approach my Dr about this as I did not want to be given anything I could get addicted to but over time I found myself 'needing' Diphen Hydro and I enjoyed the feeling it gave me just before sleep.My habit has got worse since I have started taking them during the day,not for sleep but purely for that feeling of 'detachment' that it gives me.I know this must be a dangerous game I am playing here and I am just looking for somebody to give me the facts and tell me what damage,if any,this is doing to my body.Thank you.

I have been using Diphenhydramine for 20 years or so. I have been increasing my dosage sometimes up?
