Diphenhydramine should not adversely affect the hypertension problem. Taken as directed it will hopefully help your sleeping.
Good to see you Laurie! Now as Laurie said the dipenhydramine should not cause problems with blood pressure when you take it at night in order to sleep, and you might talk with your doctor to see if he suggests anything as effective and still remain safe
Yes Myra... Benadryl will have no adverse effect, in fact, it may even lower your blood pressure a bit since it is a antihistamine... be well... pup
