The original Benadryl for allergies contained both Diphenhydramine and Pseudoephedrine . Now they have taken out the Pseudoephedrine and it's not as powerful. I know that pills containing Pseudoephedrine are now only allowed to be sold at the Pharmacy counter, not off the shelf. (because it can be used to manufacture narcotics I believe.) But apparently Benadryl stopped using it altogether.

Does anyone know if there is any allergy pill on the market that still combines Diphenhydramine and Pseudoephedrine? I guess it would have to be purchased at the pharmacy but they don't seem to know one way or the other about this.

Apparently they still manufacture it, you might ask your pharmacy about ordering it. Or this site says they have it if you need to order on-line:

Benadryl D is not the same ingredients now. That's why I am asking. Instead of Pseuedophedrine they are using Phenylephrine HCl in Benadryl D. I don't know what that is but I know the original ingredients worked like a charm for me. Also I think even this newer D version is discontinued. I've found the new "D" locally but it's old stock that expires in July or August 08. I'd buy on line if I can be sure the expiration on it is 09 or later.

Here's a more up to date link showing the changed ingredients of Benadryl D. Notice it does not contain Pseudoephedrine

I called Pfizer customer support and they verified Benadryl D formula was changed. Medshopexpress hasn't updated the description, they probably just don't know it was changed. Furthermore the rep at Pfizer told me that Benadryl D is now discontinued anyway. So I'd be careful to check expiration dates of any Benadryl D still being sold.

It looks to me like no one sells that combination of Diphenhydramine and Pseudoephedrine tablets. You can buy them separately as regular Benadryl and Sudafed.
