In answer to your question of what ingredients about dye free and dyed benedryl
 
 
Dye Free Benadryl has Diphenhydramine,  Gelatin, Glycerin, Polyethylene Glycol 400, and Sorbitol.
 
 
 
Regular Benadryl has Diphenhydramine  HCL, candelilla wax, colloidal silicone dioxide, crospovidone, hypromellose, microcrystalline cellulose, polyethylene glycol, providone, pregelatinized starch, starch, stearic acid, titanium dioxide, and talc
 
So there is no talc, steraric acid, pregelatinized startch, providone, microcystalline cellulose, hypromellose, crospovidone, colloidal silicone dioxide, and candelilla wax in the dye free benedryl.

That's untrue. The diphenydramine in Benadryl is what causes drowsiness. Its also the main ingredient in over the counter sleep meds, ie. Tylenol PM, Advil PM, Simply Sleep, etc..

All I know is that I used a medical professional link to look up the ingredients. And I do know it is the dye that makes people sleepy. The pharmacist confirmed it after my man tried telling me that. I didnt believe him that dye could make such a difference and we were at walgreens so I asked the pharmacist if it was the dye and he said yes.

Thats absurd.
If the Board of Pharmacy walked in and heard that pharmacist giving you the advice you just stated he would get a review.
Yes, your husband may believe the "dye-free" is the sole reason it doesn't put him to sleep.  The mind is a powerful tool in manipulating the effects of the body's feelings.  However, the active ingredient "DIPHENHYDRAMINE" can be used to help you relax and fall asleep.  Read the back of 1st generation Unisom, or Sominex containers in addition to the others posted on my last post or look them up: you can use WebMD.
As a pharmacist when people have simple, rare inability to fall asleep what is my first line product to help them? "Benedryl". Something most people have in thier medicine cabinet and have no reason to run out and buy.  And no, I don't care if you prefer dye-free or tablets or capsules, store brand or name brand. And as a pharmacist no medical reference brought to me or my staff or colleages has stated "dye free" eliminates drowsiness. Its all dipenhydramine and in most people (not all) will cause drowsiness.

Oh great, here I go saving lives for my job and I got a pharmacist telling me off. Lets pray the pharmacy tech doesn't have myocardial infarction around me, I just might forget the cardiopulmonary resuscitation, that is if I even start it within five minutes of onset ventricular fibrillation.

Benadryl is genericaly named dipenhydramine.
IN ACTIVE Ingredients
candelilla wax, colloidal silicone dioxide, crospovidone, hypromellose, microcrystalline cellulose, polyethylene glycol, providone, pregelatinized starch, starch, stearic acid, titanium dioxide, and talc

Benadryul Dye Free
IN ACTIVE Ingredients
Inactive Ingredients: Gelatin, Glycerin, Polyethylene Glycol 400, and Sorbitol. Purified water. Softgels are imprinted with edible dye-free ink.

-----------------------------
So like I said before Dye free does not contain: candelilla wax, colloidal silicone dioxide, crospovidone, hypromellose, microcrystalline cellulose, providone... and so on.

Either way, the tired part is a side effect.

I wonder if I looked up each ingredient that was not in dye free if the side effect is "drowsy."

To find out the ingredients, ask benedryl or go to their website! I sure hope the manufacturer wouldnt lie about what is in it.

Alright, I got to get back on the floor with my patients pretty quickly break is almost up. Nice meeting ya pharmacy boy.

Sincerely,

The chick working the field of respite, nursing home, home care.

Glad to know my training is out of date too now!

Ps, many chemicals, ingredients, poisons will have the side effect of drowsyness. Whether which ingredient causes it is another story.
Don't Care Bout Nuffin No More, Guess I shouldnt even be in this world
