eric,I have enlarged prostate but my urologist said I can take Benadryl.everything I read said Benadryl bad for prostate.

Hi Howard,
Benadryl's side effects could interfere with passing urine if it is used on a regular basis. Benadryl is meant to be used for quick relief of an allergic reaction. This means it is not meant to be used regularly. For an occasional use to manage an allergic reaction such as an insect bite, it is safe.
Thank you for using Allexperts.
