It must be me, something must be wrong.... because I'm addicted to dyphenhydramine. I love taking large amounts. These are store bought sleeping pillls(unisom, etc.) and also antihistamines(benadryl). I take large amounts and go about doing normal things-no prob. They do not put me to sleep, they can help-but only if I'm already tired. I was prescribed them 3-4 times a day for anxiety at one point.... and I'm going to get my doc to put me back on them. I need to take them when I have nothing else to take. My family has a history of addictions-maybe that's the problem? Anyway, I'm on vistaril for anxiety now.... & dyphenhydramine works better for me anyway. Why would they say that it's non-habit forming if it can be.... just because there are no physical withdrawals? There are no physical withdrawals to valium that I know of, yet they call that habit-forming.... and I think that dyphenhydramine works better than diazepam or xanax for me.... it's just that diazepam or xanax feel better to most ppl, making them much more potentially addictive. In some countries diazepam(valium) as well as soma are legally bought right off a store shelf. I'm moving there-post haste.
