what are the long term effects of diphenhydramine?
i used to think it was ok that i OD on it now and again because its relatively safe and most of the overdose symptoms such as hallucinations, are why i started doing it in the first place.. but heres the problem-i take it almost every day now and the amount i take in a day has gone up to around 1200mg (safe dose is 50mg) im always late for work now because i dont have the energy to get ou =t of bed.
ive tried to stop taking it but i dont last very long, so i wanna know if it will do any long term damage if i keep taking so much of it, so that hopefully i can be scared into stopping.

Dirty dreams.

drowsiness along with the possibilities of motor impairment (ataxia), dry mouth and throat, flushed skin, rapid or irregular heartbeat (tachycardia), blurred vision at nearpoint owing to lack of accommodation (cycloplegia), abnormal sensitivity to bright light (photophobia), pupil dilation (mydriasis), urinary retention (ischuria), constipation, difficulty concentrating, short-term memory loss, visual disturbances, hallucinations, irritability, itchy skin, confusion, delirium, hives.

Safe maximum dosage for diphenhydramine is 300 mg over a 24 hr period, so you are taking 4 times that amount, where do you think the excess is going? as your body can not process it that fast and it has to store the excess somewhere...it goes into your gall bladder and other organs...and do you know what happens once your Vital organs say WHOA i have had enough? I can assure you that you will not like the outcome! Use your imagination, it could be anything from seizures to coma to ??

Your body can only take so much abuse. Keep pushing it and you will find out just how silly this whole thing is. I don't know why you would even want to take that stuff unless you absolutely need to. You are causing yourself long term damage, but you will not see the results of it until it is to late.

Most people who abuse diphenhydramine never use more than 600mg and even people who use it to potentiate opiates rarely use more than 800mg. I don't know wtf you're doing at 1200mg.

Anyway, the big risk is heart damage. And it's a real risk, probably already in the works. Liver and brain damage are also risks, though they're both a little less certain.

What you need to do is immediately taper off, maybe with 100-200mg steps, to avoid a rebound effect and then take it easy on your body for a long while. Also, if you're taking it that often, your usage may be related to diphenhydramine's rather obscure antidepressant (SSRI) effect. You might experiment with St John's Wort or seek a prescription SSRI. And if I were you, I'd consult a doctor, though they're probably not going to be able to do much for any damage you've done.

Wow. I have to say, you got some serious tolerance going on ... I can't keep my eyes open after one 50mg pill ... it kicks my a** every time. You know, I would seriously just call a pharmacy and ask what the side effects or problems could be with this heavy of usage. They won't know who they are talking to, and they can give specific drug information, not medical information. After you do that, consider talking to your personal Dr. because I am not sure you can quit that high of use safely without medical intervention. Some things have to be weaned from your system or you need to be medicated when coming off them. Best wishes to you, I can't get my brain around how much you take of this stuff!

Diphenhydramine is used to relieve red, irritated, itchy, watery eyes; sneezing; and runny nose caused by hay fever, allergies, or the common cold. Diphenhydramine is also used to relieve cough caused by minor throat or airway irritation. Diphenhydramine is also used to prevent and treat motion sickness, and to treat insomnia (difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep). Diphenhydramine is also used to control abnormal movements in people who have early stage parkinsonian syndrome (a disorder of the nervous system that causes difficulties with movement, muscle control, and balance) or who are experiencing movement problems as a side effect of a medication. Diphenhydramine will only relieve the symptoms of these conditions but will not treat the cause of the symptoms or speed recovery. Diphenhydramine is used to treat these conditions in adults and children over age 2. Diphenhydramine should not be given to children younger than 2 years old because it may cause serious or life-threatening side effects in young children. Diphenhydramine should not be given to children older than 2 years old but younger than 6 years old unless prescribed by a doctor and should be used carefully in children who are 6-11 years old. Diphenhydramine should not be used to cause sleepiness in children younger than 12 years of age. Diphenhydramine is in a class of medications called antihistamines. It works by blocking the action of histamine, a substance in the body that causes allergic symptoms.
Consult the doctor or a pharmacologist.
