Lights Out with Benadryl Brew
A special thanks to The Chimp 64′s post on our community forum which inspired this blog post.
Have trouble sleeping? So do I. Here is a concoction that I take to beckon the sandman. This is pretty powerful so don’t try this if you will be doing anything which may require you to be alert.
1 Benadryl pill (25 mg)
2 Valerian Root pills
1 cup warm water
Swallow these pills with the warm water. Why warm water, you ask? I have found through experimentation that warm water causes the effects to work quicker and I stay asleep longer. Figure about 20 minutes for the full effect. Often, I don’t even feel the onset of drowsiness – just pure sleep.
Note that Benadryl is a brand name. You will get the same effect at a lower price by using a generic version of allergy relief pills, listed as Diphenhydramine HCL. I was able to purchase 100 pills of generic Diphenhydramine HCL for $4.00 at WalMart…not bad.
Also, you may have noticed that it isn’t really a brew as in “Benadryl Brew”. I just liked the name much better than “Benadryl Concoction”.
