Reviews for Diphenhydramine to treat Nausea/Vomiting

Sort by:

"Anyone who takes this in order to take pain medication or if also taking any benzodiazepine, need to use caution since all of the three slow your heart rate and breathing down. Inexperienced users might fall asleep and pass away during fyi."

Benadryl (diphenhydramine): "I had a couple surgeries on my jaw where I could not open it fully for an extended period of time. I am already semi-allergic to pain meds / anesthesia (excessive vomiting and nausea) so I was terrified to take my pain killers after surgery. The nurse / doctor recommended taking a couple Benadryl tablets (25mg) before the pain meds and it worked wonders! The only side effect is drowsiness."

Benadryl (diphenhydramine): "I get severe migraines and was given this in the hospital instead of traditional nausea meds. It work well and I now use it at home and actually works better than Zofran or Phenagren."

Benadryl (diphenhydramine): "I got a severe back injury about 2 years ago. Couldn't function pain was so bad. So my doctor started putting me on codiene, then vicoden, then tramadol, and then so on but they all gave me hours of vomiting, gut wrenching cramps, and sweating. Read about benadryl being used to prevent this side effect. I took 3 25 mg tabs. I know that is one over recommended but I was desperate. 35 mins later I was sitting with my kids and not the trash can for the first time in a while. I can't believe I didn't figure this out sooner especially with a biotech degree."

Benadryl (diphenhydramine): "I have Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome and take Benadryl everyday. It helps take the edge off. There are less side effects than other anti nausea medications and is safest for the body."

"I tried everything yesterday to stop throwing up acid. I went from Nexium to Zantac to pepto to tums, nothing helped and it all just came back up an hour later. Thankfully my brother is a paramedic and told me about how they use benedryl for their nausea patients so I took 3 of the 25mg tablets and it worked!!"

Benadryl (diphenhydramine): "I have emtophobia, that is, a pervasive fear of vomiting. I do not know if this affects vomiting, but if I feel nauseous, Benadryl works wonders. My stomach settles right down and my anxiety lowers just enough for me to deal with it without the use of benzodiazepines."

"I had a severe migraine, was driven to the hospital when regular pain relievers did not work. I was given IV Benadryl along with an anti-nausea medicine and fluids. I felt sleepy almost immediately, and my pain was lessened. The huge down side was that I felt a huge amount of anxiety for 48 hours afterward. I do not suffer from anxiety normally. I believe this was an adverse reaction of the Benadryl. "
