Generic Benadryl is the cheapest and most effective for me. Been taking it nightly for years with no ill effects.
It's available as an on-the-shelf generic in many drugstores under many names (Wal-Dryl for example) just look at the ingredients for Diphenhydramine
25 or 50 mg. It's sold as a sleep aid or an antihistamine because it lowers histamine response and a side effect is drowsiness.
I buy mine at WalMart or Walgreens but here's an example of low cost generic onlinewww.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GB1IQ8/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_3?pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B001UWNBRQ&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=19Q49J0MPAPDW7Q46RD7
Note: there are many medications that have diphenhydramine along with other pain relievers such as acetominophen but I prefer to take the sleep aid without any other meds.
