Accidentally took a Benadryl-D Novelidea 2 kids; Louisiana 1217 posts
31st Jan '13

I sent my husband to the store to get me benadryl. He handed me one and I took it. Then I looked at the box and saw it was benadryl d, not regular benadryl. Needless to say, I panicked because I'm pretty sure that's a no no. I went and threw up. Threw up until there was nothing left. I never saw the pill because (TMI) I had had a brownie and it was all dark and cloudy. I thought the pill might have sank and slid out of view. Either way, I'm pretty sure my stomach is empty now.



Do you think that it will be alright? Or Should I be more worried and go in?

I think you'll be alright, even if it's still in your system you'll be fine.

I heard it was safe to take Bendadryl after the first trimester. I could be wrong though

I've heard of women taking this throughout their pregnancy and they're babies were fine... Needless to say though, if you threw up until there was nothing left right after you took it, even if it were a no-no, I think you'll be fine.



If you're feeling funky in the morning, call. And in the meantime, try not to freak out so much.

Should be fine. You're allowed to take Benadryl during pregnancy. I've been taking it the past week because I'm sick and it helps me sleep (since I'm sick and can't sleep for crap right now)
I took ibuprofen for a few days not knowing it was a no no and my baby is still cooking good.
