    Hi,

    Awhile back I think AC told someone to take
    benadryl and he said not to take the generic.
    I was wondering why since that is what I use?

    Thanks,
    Lynn

    LOL. Sorry about that, but I could swear that is what
    I read. I will have to go search to see just how crazy
    I am! LOL I might not want to know the answer to that
    question! Maybe it wasn't you.

    I am glad I was wrong because there is a huge difference in the price!!!

    Thanks,
    Lynn

    PS Do you know Dr. Phillips in Ridgefield???

    I get it at the dollar store for, obviously, a dollar instead of the $6 to $9 from other stores.

    Love, Mikie

    Great idea, Thanks! How many do you get and at
    what dose? I pay 4.99 for 100 25mg capsules.
    Are yours capsules, too?

    So I'm not sure if they carry the capsules. I do know that the active ingredient in the syrups is the same as the brand name.

    I use the Children's because it can be taken in a small dose (1 tsp) without drowsiness during the day and at larger doses at night. I use it for allergies and itching and the creepy/crawly feeling on my skin.

    Love, Mikie
