Benadryal is also used as an anxiety medication. The doc perscribed it to me when I was taking paxil. Then again when I tried Celexa. And if you read on the package it listens anxiety as one of the uses.

So i'm all in all not surprised!

Interesting article however the references were from 1969-2003.  I wonder if there are newer studies out on this.

Please do ask your Doctor about using anything Off label for your anxiety.

Thanks everyone,
