Alcohol consumption poses an additional risk to people taking Benadryl. Some medications contain alcohol and should not be taken with antihistamines. These include laxatives and cough syrups.

However, acetaminophen (Tylenol) on the other hand should be avoided with alcohol.

Alcohol may increase drowsiness and dizziness while you are taking diphenhydrAMINE. You should be warned not to exceed recommended dosages and to avoid activities requiring mental alertness. If your doctor prescribes these medications together, you may need a dose adjustment to safely take this combination.

In fact, taking Benadryl and alcohol together is dangerous, as they tend to slow down your central nervous system too much. And this can lead to drowsiness, blurred vision and trouble carrying out mental and physical tasks which requires mental alertness.

Diphenhydramine medications like Benadryl and alcohol don’t mix. They both work to depress the central nervous system (CNS), slowing it down to such a degree that a user can experience profound sedation and drowsiness.
