Same here with the Benadryl. 2 years ago, I took 2 Benadryl. What a mistake! Within 20 minutes, I could not talk, and had the worst panic/anxiety attack I have ever experienced. I was hallucinating, my breathing stopped and I literally had to force myself to breath. I also got terrible auditory hallucinations that sounded like a cacaphony of voices, music, car honkings, etc. I tried xxxx 1 time in the 1970's and had a "bad trip". Well, the bad trip from the Benadryl was 100x worse than a xxxx bad trip. I ended up in the psych ward for almost a week because of the panic attacks and hallucinations. My Dr. told me that appx. 5% of people have an enzyme in their liver that converts Benadryl into an amphetamine and a psychedelic drug. People, be careful with this pill. Just because you can get it OTC, does not mean it is safe for everyone.
