Benadryl® coupons and discounts are generally available on the Benadryl® official site. Coupons may be offered for oral Benadryl® as well as topical Benadryl® products, and consumers may need to fill out a form to access them. Coupons and discounts may also be found through other sources online or in printed form. Generic Benadryl® may be the most cost effective option, whether coupons are available or not. Store brands of diphenhydramine, for example, cost less than the brand-name version.

Benadryl® contains the active ingredient diphenhydramine, which is used to treat symptoms of allergies and colds such as sneezing and irritated eyes. It may also be used as a sleep aid, as it causes drowsiness. Diphenhydramine is also sold in generic form, and is present in other brands such as Unisom® and Advil® PM.[1]

About Benadryl

Benadryl® is Johnson and Johnson's trademarked brand name for its diphenhydramine hydrochloride products. Benadryl®, manufactured by Johnson and Johnson's McNeil Consumer Healthcare unit, is an antihistamine OTC medication used to prevent and treat allergic reactions. Benadryl® is also available in prescription formulations that require a doctor's recommendation.[1]

Benadryl® was developed by George Rieveschl, a chemical engineer at the University of Cinncinnati in the early 1940s. Benadryl® was approved by the FDA in 1948. The original patent was held by Parke, Davis & Company, which had provided the resources for Rieveschel to test Benadryl®.[3] The patent expired in 1964, allowing other manufacturers to produce drugs containing diphenhydramine. The FDA approved Benadryl® for over the counter use in the 1980s.[4]

Side effects of Benadryl® include dry nose and mouth, tiredness, constipation and upset stomach. In extreme but rare cases, the drug can cause vision impairment and painful or difficult urination.[1]
