Benadryl is about the only medication of that type we can use. I use it all the time when I don't have Ambien.
If you're concerned, check Benadryl's label. There is no MAOI warning on it.
My Dr. told me all this initially.

> According to what I've read, benadryl is technically not supposed to be used with MAOI's, nor is Tylenol according to at least one source.
> (Benadryl is the active ingredient in over-the-counter sleep aids as well, for those who weren't aware of this).
> It seems like it would go doubly so for Benadryl, because it also acts as an SSRI, although most people do not know this. And SSRI's are also contraindicated while taking MAO inhibitors.
> But, has anyone taken benadryl as a sleep aid or for allergies with EMSAM, and did you have any problems? Thanks.
