Hello, the Benadryl is a great idea for sleep promotion; however, it tends to give individuals a hang-over effect. This phenomena, "hang-over" effect can be greatly reduced if you eat a significant amount of protein when taking the Benadryl or even take when you are eating your evening meal. By doing this, this helps prevent "gastric dumping" into the gastrointestinal system, and gives the medication something to work on, preventing a straight bolus of Benadryl which causes the hang-over effect. Hope this helps, Cindy
I am not judging you for drinking the beer, but get off of that before you decide to get off of the xanax. Try 10mg of melatonin with the Xanax, and I think that you will be able to sleep better. Alcohol interferes with your sleep to begin with, so you want to get off of what is causing the most problems. Also alcohol + benzo's are NOT a good healthy choice. they can cause death. Good luck!! Let me know if i can help you anymore because I have been there too, and I understand.
