 1  trouble sleeping I bought SLEEP II at Walgreens which is the same thing. Like 15-20 minutes later I began do feel drowsy but my mind was racing . I could't sleep because it was as if I had lost control of my mind thinking about a bunch of negative stuff that made no sense. My heart was also racing. Even the next day when I woke up, I felt anxious. I got really scared because my hands and feet felt cold. I thought it was never going to end which made me even more anxious. It was horrible.

DIPHENHYDRAMINE HCL  (DIPHENHYDRAMINE HYDROCHLORIDE):  Diphenhydramine injection is an antihistamine used to treat life-threatening allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) along with epinephrine and other treatments. It is also used to relieve symptoms of household allergies, hay fever and the common cold when medication cannot be given by mouth. Common allergy symptoms relieved by antihistamines include rash, itching, watery eyes, itchy eyes/nose/throat, cough, runny nose and sneezing. It is also used to treat nausea, vomiting and dizziness caused by motion sickness when medication cannot be given by mouth. Diphenhydramine works by blocking a certain natural substance (histamine) that your body makes during an allergic reaction. Its drying effects on such symptoms as watery eyes and runny nose are caused by blocking another natural substance made by your body (acetylcholine). Diphenhydramine should not be used in newborns or premature infants because of an increased risk of side effects. It should not be used for common cold symptoms in children less than 6 years of age due to the risk of serious side effects, such as slow/shallow breathing. Cough-and-cold products have not been shown to be safe or effective in children younger than 6.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
