    Why do you want to hullucinate from it? Okay so i know drugs are appealling to some but seems a bit silly using Diphenhydramine. My guess is it will give you awful physical reactions too like a racing heart. I took it in a NORMAL dose as it's an antihistamine ( or used to help you sleep) and i had breathing difficulties. I'm not saying this will happen to you, i'm just making it clear that it seems silly to me using this to get a 'high.'

    "i'm finding a meaning. Once you say, finally 'now i've got it,' then you've lost it, because you're dragging it down to something very limited. It's an on-going process and the meaning of life itself. One is continually going into the depths of yourself, discovering a strength, a presence perhaps, in heart of yourself." Karen Armstrong

    Hi justharry

    Just wanted to check in with you as itís been a few days since you posted this.
    Thereís not all that much out there on recreational use of Diphenhydramine but from various other forums, it seems that the possible side effects reported by some users are:

    - Dry mouth
    - Frequent urination, or possible urinary retention
    - Sexual dysfunction
    - Blurred vision
    - Confusion
    - Discomfort, dizziness, loss of coordination
    - Uncontrollable muscle twitches or cramps, restless leg syndrome (less common)
    - Nervousness, anxiety
    - Nausea (at higher doses, less common)
    - Vomiting (very rare, in fact most users would have trouble vomiting if they tried due to diphenhydramine's antiemitic effects)
    - Amnesia, loss of memory of the experience afterwards
    - Visual and auditory hallucinations - This is one of the most sought after effects, and it can range from seeing simple patterns on the walls, to having conversations with people that are not there. This can be pleasant, interesting, terrifying, or even dangerous, because at high enough doses it becomes impossible to distinguish hallucinations from reality. A very common hallucination is seeing small insects that do not exist.

    However, this of course depends on how much you take and your individual reaction to it. As Diphenhydramine is a sedative, you should probably avoid alcohol (also a sedative) if you do take it.

    Some useful general advice about taking drugs as safely as possible can be found on TheSite: http://www.thesite.org/drinkanddrugs...ety/usingdrugs

    Finally, if youíre taking an over the counter drug that contain dimenhydrinate, such as Benedryl, be aware that these drugs can contain acetaminophen, which can be very toxic in high dosages.

    Hope this is useful! Just let us know if you have any other questions!

    To get high from the stuff would be a misnomer, I would expect to get monged from it and then fall asleep. That's all I've ever used it for and that's all it's ever done - added some "fluffy" to mild alcohol intoxication, and made me sleepy, bit of memory loss afterwards at higher doses.

    By the way "acetaminophen" is paracetamol, which you don't want to be overdosing on. If you look at some of the OTC sleeping tablets, they have diphenhydramine in them without paracetamol.

    So she can fly, fly, fly
    Spreadin' her wings and her song
    Let her fly, fly fly
    For the whole world to see
