Benedryl the night before surgery

My surgery is in the morning, and for the last week I have been taking benedryl at night to help me sleep. (nerves!)
I tried to call my Dr., but they are gone for the day.

Does anyone know if you can take benedryl the night before surgery?

No you cannot take benedryl the night before surgery. I received a list of things not ot take at my pre-opt. The only thing allowed is tylenol. Good luck!

Prayers going forth on your behalf tomorrow. May your surgery and recovery be uneventful and without complications or hindrances. God bless!

I also ditto Marty on the benadryl. Had an issue with sinus before the weekend and called to see if I could take benedryl and was informed only TYLENOL.

Take care and may your sleep be sweet this night!

Don't think of Tylenol PM either because the PM is caused by the same ingredient in Benadryl! Sorry!!

My hospital must have been different lol. I was allowed benedryl as long as I took it before 6pm the night before. Different hospitals, lol. Only thing I could not take was asprin or motrin. Bleeding concerns I guess. Good luck with your surgery!

BessieJo -

Make sure you tell your Dr and your anethesiologist you have been taking it this week. Benadryl was a no no per my dr one week out. I think because it is a vasil (sp?) constrictor. I hope it won't be an issue but you certainly don't want it to be a surprise for them if it could be a problem.

Best wishes,
