Zyrtec vs. Benedryl
I have not been sleeping well and I am exhausted. Saturday night at midnight I was wide awake and searched the whole house for benadryl. If I take 2 it puts me out pretty easily and I sleep through the night without waking up 6-8 times. Couldn't find it anywhere but found the Zyrtec. It claims it causes drowsiness, figured it must be the same so I took 2. I fell asleep I think around 3 or 4 Sunday morning. Not the same. I was told by a Dr. if I had trouble sleeping to take a couple of Benadryl. Now I know why he didn't say "or Zytrec" They are not the same, so don't try this at home! Yikes, looks like a nap for me during the Superbowl, I am completely sick of football anyways!
