You're probably right, but to be fair:

I checked for a drug interaction between parnate and benadryl at drugs.com and it shows a moderate drug interaction (basic warning about taking Benadryl and other antihistamines with MAOI's).

Also, Benadryl does reportedly potently block the reuptake of serotonin, although most psychiatrists and pharmacists probably don't even know this.
