Just what is the role of Benadryl when it comes to allergies? Benadryl has a lot of advantages. The drug is very good to be used to reduce the problems associated with allergy; the itching, the runny eyes, the redness, all of those things. But, one of the problems of Benadryl is that it can lead to drowsiness and the higher the dose you take of Benadryl, the greater the problem. That is the limiting factor. Also, Benadryl can be converted with calamine lotion. That combination, actually called Caladryl, can be effective in dealing with poison ivy.
