Benadryl Solution

Generic Name: Diphenhydramine Injection Solution (dye-fen-HYE-dra-meen)
Brand Name: Examples include Benadryl

Benadryl Solution is used for:

Treating allergic reactions, allergy symptoms, motion sickness, and Parkinson disease when treatment with medicine taken by mouth is not possible. It may also be used to treat certain conditions as determined by your doctor.

Benadryl Solution is an antihistamine and anticholinergic. It works by blocking the action of histamine, which reduces the symptoms of an allergic reaction. It also works in the brain to reduce symptoms of Parkinson disease and motion sickness.

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in Benadryl Solution or to similar medicines
  • you are taking sodium oxybate (GHB)
  • you are taking or have taken a monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor (eg, phenelzine) in the past 2 weeks
  • you are breast-feeding

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.
