'The IV Benadryl used to put me out right away. If I took that, I wouldn't go back to work afterwards. However; I got used to the infusions and never had a reaction, so I just stopped taking the benadryl all together. I would find myself still calling off work as I told myself: "If there's one good thing I can get out of Crohns, it's a day off every couple of weeks for my infusion."
Good luck to you!
