If so what are the side affects?
21 Nov 2009
Diphenhydramine is not habit forming, so there is no need to worry about taking it every day (there are no adverse effects). However, you might form a tolerance to it, i.e. it won't make you sleepy after taking it for awhile (it depends on the person, this might not happen). You can also ask your doc for non-habit forming medication that can help with sleep, such as Trazadone (a tetracyclic anti-depressant, used in low doses for insomnia because it is not habit forming or addictive). Another is Amitryptilene (a tricyclic antidepressant), similar idea.
