> No, this is absolutely backwards:
> Pure antihistamines (Benadryl is a good example) are okay.
> Decongestants (pseudoephedrine is a good example) are prohibited.
> I take 90 mg/day Nardil and use 50 mg/night generic diphenhydramine (Benadryl) for sleep. I asked my doctor about this first because I thought it was good to be cautious, and he said that the pure Benadryl was fine, and that the versions with pseudoephedrine and other stuff should be avoided.
