The Many Risks Of Mixing Xanax And Benadryl
While Benadryl is an over the counter medication, it can be just as harmful as Xanax, if you do not take it properly. With that being said Xanax and Benadryl are two entirely different types of medications. Xanax is an anti-anxiety medication that is prescribed by a doctor. Xanax is listed as a benzodiazepine, which means, you are at risk of building up a tolerance and harsh withdrawal symptoms once you stop taking it. Benadryl would be listed as an antihistamine, which is usually taken to relieve allergy symptoms. Below you will discover why it is dangerous to mix these two drugs.
