No, people with immune deficiencies, headaches, mental health problems, heart problems, arthritis, ADHD, chronic pain take drugs. Moron’s however make stupidly narrow comments about things they probable know or understand very little.

That sucks, but if you need help sleeping you should get actual sleeping pills. Benadryl is not a sleep aid and using it as one can become dangerous long term.

Zzzquil (which is marketed as an over-the-counter sleep aid) is literally just benadryl dyed purple. Look at the label and their active ingredient is the same, Diphenhydramine HCl.

People don't usually consider Benadryl a cough medicine. Compound wise, yes it counts as one, but most people associate it with allergies- runny nose, sinus pressure, itching, swelling, flushing, coughing, etc- rather than colds. The fact that doctors do promote the use of Benadryl as both an anti-anxiety medication and as a sleep aid doesn't exactly help clear things up any.

Also, cold/cough medicines- including Benadryl- DON'T cause false positives for tricyclic antidepressants. They cause false positives for (meth)amphetamines, PCP, methadone, and opiates. Which means it's more likely that OP's urine was possibly tampered with or otherwise contaminated.

Benadryl is not a tricyclic antidepressant and not close to it. This would be a false-positive result. Fyi, benadryl does not easily cause a positive drug screen. If you haven't taken something else, it means you're taking way too much benadryl, practically toxic, to be causing a false positive. I suggest you lay off using it for sleep assistance - that's not healthy and not Benadryl's purpose.

While Benadryl (Diphenhydramine) is not a tricyclic antidepressant, as mentioned already (thanks CRC_101), certain assays such as the enzyme immunoassay may show false positivity with Benadryl, especially at higher dosages, but usually not with a single pill ...
