Is it possible for heads to explode? Sometimes I wonder.

When I can write my name on the pollen on my truck, I know I'm in for a long haul. This area has bad air in general and loads of trees and flowers. There are times of the year when I am pretty sure my head is gonig to explode. When I was younger I seriously did wonder if "blow your brains out" really meant something about sneezing with that much pressure in the face. I could just mentally picture that.

I really love general Benadryl for itching. I also have bee sting issues. That stuff really does the trick. So, I thought I'd give Benadryl Allergy and Sinus Headache a try. I know the company makes good products.

I would say that Benadryl which has a pain reliever, antihistamine and nasal decongestant helps if I take it when I first feel some pressure. If I wait, then it's too late. My nose doesn't run like normal noses, so congestion backs up and leads to sinus infections. Those need to be treated by a doctor.

I try to stay on top of things. Benadryl Allergy is a good product. When I'm feeling just a little draggy, then this does the trick. If I'm feeling really cranky and falling asleep in the recliner, then it's time to call the doc. Those infections really do sneak up on me.

I'd also note that Benadryl does not contain Pseudoephedrine. I've read a few reviews that stated that it did. That's been associated with strokes. No one wants that. I double checked. That's not in this medication.

The only issue I've noted with Benadryl allergy is that it does tend to make me groggy. I'm more likely to take it at bedtime. Then, I wake up feeling better unless I'm really sick.

I am a severe lifelong allergy sufferer who's pretty sure I singlehandedly been keeping benedryl in business. For me, the newer class of allergy meds just don't cut it like Benedryl does. I get some relief from other OTC & prescription meds, but I find that the sinus headache, itchy eyes, and runny nose are often not controlled by them. Which brings me to this Benedryl Allergy & Sinus Headache review. As mentioned earlier, the benedryl portion of this medication seems effective enough, however the portion of the medication meant to control the sinus headache and other symptoms left me disappointed and unable to take anything else for several hours. For lack of better terminology, it seemed to taunt & tease me with a glimmer of hope that it was going to work, but in the end it fell short. So much for my all-in-one pill. In the end chose to stick with just the regular benedryl with separate meds to treat my additional symptoms, ibuprofen liquigels (3) work best for me as far as OTC relief for sinus headache

Benadryl Allergy Plus Sinus Headache addresses multi symptoms.

By 

from USA

Comments about Benadryl Allergy Plus Sinus Headache Kapgels:

Benadryl Allergy Plus Sinus Headache addresses multi symptoms.. For those people who suffer from allergies, Benadryl Allergy Plus Sinus Headache helps to alleviate multiple symptoms.

I have used regular Benadryl for many years now when I get occasional seasonal allergy symptoms. Regular Benaydryl helps my sinuses, runny nose, and itchy-wattery eyes. It's fantastic for what it is made for.

But once in a while all those symptoms compound and I end up with a very severe headache. Before I found Benadryl Allergy Plus Sinus Headache, I would take regular Benadryl and Tylenol. I always kind of worried about taking them together.

But now there is a single product that addresses ALL the symptoms. I feel comfortable and secure in taking this.

It works the same as regular Benadryl, and of course, the side effect is extreme drowsiness. If I take this or regular Benadryl, I fall asleep almost instantly. It's fast working on my symptoms, and also knocks me out!

But on those days where allergy symptoms are at their worst, this is the best thing for me.

By 

from USA

Comments about Benadryl Allergy Plus Sinus Headache Kapgels:

I had terrible headaches. They soon turned to migraines. So I scheduled an appointment with my doctor. Until I was able to get in, I took a Benadryl Allergy Plus Sinus Headache Kapgel, and an extra strength Tylenol to go with it. This made me very sleepy. I usually took this before bed. This way I could sleep instead of my headaches and migraines keeping me up all hours of the night. I called this mixture my "cocktail." (No Alcohol was in it. It is just a joke.) this worked for me a little bit before my appointment arrived. Then I was put on prescription and I no longer take my cocktail anymore.

Effectiveness
it worked when I mixed it. I would recommend taking for small headaches, to sleep, or for an drowsy allergy medication.

Ease of Use
I can swallow pills, so this was not a problem at all.

Immediacy
The Benadryl was what made me drowsy. I started to get drowsy after about 20- 30 minutes of taking the mixture. NOTE: BENADRYL MAKES YOU DROWSY

Benadryl Allergy and Sinus Relieves Multiple Symptoms

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Benadryl Allergy Plus Sinus Headache Kapgels:

One of the foremost names in allergy treatment is Benedryl and it is one of a handful of drug makers that can always be counted on for making good quality products. One of its many useful drugs is **Benadryl Allergy and Sinus Headache Gelcaps.**



**Medicine Commentary:**



Benadryl Allergy and Sinus Headache Gelcaps contain three active ingredients: Acetaminophen 500 mg (Pain reliever), Diphenhydramine HCl 12.5 mg (Antihistamine), and Pseudoephedrine HCl 30 mg (Nasal decongestant). The drug fights to relieve common allergy symptoms like runny nose, congestion, sneezing, itchy watery eyes, and aches/pains caused by sinus pressure.



I have allergy issues year- round and Benedryl is one of several drugs I count on to keep the symptoms under control. I am fortunate in that my sinus problems are almost always nasal in nature- I don’t usually experience headache or any type of pain. But when the congestion and pressure build up to the point of pain, Benedryl Allergy and Sinus Gelcaps are one product that helps to get the problems under control until my next allergy attack strikes.



Benadryl Allergy and Sinus Headache Gelcaps are good for about six hours of relief. They are effective and work as promised, but consumers need to be careful- this product is known to cause drowsiness in some individuals.

** **

**Bottom Line Viewpoint:**



Benadryl Allergy and Sinus Headache Gelcaps are a useful product for allergy relief. They relieve the usual nasal problems plus a little bit more. They cannot control a serious onset of pain, but they are good for controlling pain from sinus pressure as well as minor body aches.

Effectiveness
Relieves most allergy symptoms in reatively short time.

Ease of Use
All it takes is one small pill.

Immediacy
This medication goes to work quickly to control allergy symptoms.

If I could have only ONE sinus medication, this would be it!

By 

from Fresno, CA

Comments about Benadryl Allergy Plus Sinus Headache Kapgels:

I have a very difficult time with any decongestants. They make me very nervous, give me nightmares and make me feel worse than not taking them. Benadryl Allergy and Sinus Headache medicine never does this to me. I can sleep at night and don't feel drowsy in the morning. The best part is that my sinus headache is always better. I have always used the tablets, but would use try the gelcaps, I just didn't notice them before. Gelcaps seem to work faster. I am all about that. I trust Benadryl products --they are safe and effective and have been depended upon for generations.

A must have for immediate relief, I'd be lost with them.

By 

from Thompsontown, PA

Comments about Benadryl Allergy Plus Sinus Headache Kapgels:

Benadryl allergy sinus caps would have to be the #1 product in my book for any over the counter medicine to heal my achy head.  After the birth of my daughter I struggled with sinus trouble on a constant basis, never had problems before.  Then someone recommended Benadryl sinuscaps and my relief came in pill form.  I've used other medicines and even natural sources that can work if you catch it before it's full blown, but this product is necessary for the worst time when you have full blown sinus trouble that can't eat, can't smell, can't breathe type of sinus trouble.  The kind that hurts clear from the toops of your head, radiating past your eyelids down to the tips of your nose and back through that rings through the ears.

Here is what benadryl provides, not only relief but in many ways, all day relief.  No more pain in the head nor behind the eyes where sinus lurks for hours, and you cant' get anything done.  No more stuffiness, it alleviates that and instantly my nose will be cleared to breathe and smell again.  It's a great product and worth it's price !  I recommend it to anyone and everyone who needs instant relief.

Benadryl Allergy and Sinus Headache Gelcaps

By 

from Fayetteville, GA

Comments about Benadryl Allergy Plus Sinus Headache Kapgels:

Well this stuff works absolutely great. If you get sinus headaches or anything like that then this works great. It also relieves allergy symptoms and helps with itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing, but it also helps with some pain caused by sinuses too. It seems to work faster than normal benadryl and it stops all the pressure in your head when you are congested real bad. it helps stop itching too and gets rid of the worst symptoms you can possibly have. The only problem with this is like most benadryl, it does make you tired. But anytime I take any benadryl product I expect to get tired so that is nothing new for me. I recommend this medicine to anyone who suffers from horrible allergies, or anyone who gets an itch or rash or anything like that.

Benadryl works fast

By 

from Spring, TX

Comments about Benadryl Allergy Plus Sinus Headache Kapgels:

I am allergic to cold weather. It sounds weird, but if I stay outside when it's very-very cold for more than 1-2 hours, I start sneezing once or twice and then this awful sinus pressure just hits me. So, then, I pop 1-2 pills of Benadryl. It works fast. BUT! I can only pop 2 pills if I intend to go to bed. The antihistamine that it contains is quite strong, in about 10-15 minutes it puts me to sleep. During the day I just take 1. It does do everything that it says on the package. The drugs in it are good.

Benadryl to the rescue!

By 

from Dulles, VA

Comments about Benadryl Allergy Plus Sinus Headache Kapgels:

Benadryl Allergy and Sinus Headache Gelcaps are a real lifesaver for me.  I keep a supply on hand that makes me look like a small convenience store!  They work for me for a variety of ailments.  (1) Sometimes if I catch a migraine early enough they work for that.  I don't know why, but they are sure a lot cheaper than my prescription migraine medication.  Must use it immediately at onset, however.  (2) I am sensitive to the sun.  Spending time out in the sun, even with sunscreen, often leaves me feeling ill.  If I know the night before that I am going to be outside a lot, I can take one of these gelcaps before bed and another in the morning and have only minimal, if any, negative effects from the sun.  (3)  I have some seasonal allergies that for whatever reason these benadryl work on better than other OTC or prescription medication.

I try to only take one unless I will be able to sleep.  They make me a bit drowsy if I take two and I act strange.  This happens with other allergy or sinus medication I take though, so it is not a problem unique to benadryl.  I LOVE this stuff!  Harder to find than the stuff in the pink box, but worth looking for it.  I was also allowed to take it while pregnant and nursing and it SAVED me when some other things were no-nos.

Best over the counter sinus relief I have ever found!

By 

from Newfoundland, NJ

Comments about Benadryl Allergy Plus Sinus Headache Kapgels:

i have tried many over the counter sinus remedies and allergy pills.  Most relieve the congestion but don't stop the annoying nasal drip.  Benadryl Sinus & Allergy does both and allows me to get my work done and enjoy my life.  It is also very reasonably priced and works better than the more expensive allergy pills such as Claritin.
