  • I took Wal-Dryl a few years ago when I was first realizing my allergy symptoms were getting worse as the days progressed, and when I started to experience symptoms as early in the year as March
  • I've always been a big fan of Benadryl products, though they have so many variations of the same medication now that I didn't even think it really mattered what I tried anymore, so I decided to switch over and get the Walgreens generic version, the Wal-Dryl Allergy capsules
  • It was definitely worth the investment, because I was basically taking them every four hours, two pills at a time, so about 8 pills a day
  • The pills definitely worked, don't get me wrong, but I think they would be better suited to treating allergies that are worse in the evening hours, than as an all-day treatment
  • Now, with that said, I never epxerienced any other negative side effects like an upset stomach or anything, and I'm not entirely sure I'd even consider the marked drowsiness as a negative side effect either, because it comes in handy when trying to help you sleep at night

      I’m a sucker for generic store brand medications verses the name brand stuff, because part of me always thinks it’s cheaper to purchase even though that’s not always the case. I suffer from allergies, these days, on a pretty constant basis. It used to be only in the fall months when my allergies were at their worst, but now it’s pretty much every day, mostly worse in the mornings and at night. I took Wal-Dryl a few years ago when I was first realizing my allergy symptoms were getting worse as the days progressed, and when I started to experience symptoms as early in the year as March. I’d wake up in the morning so congested that I was miserable for several hours afterwards until I was up and moving and my body

      wasn’t so tired from sleeping all night. I’ve always been a big fan of Benadryl products, though they have so many variations of the same medication now that I didn’t even think it really mattered what I tried anymore, so I decided to switch over and get the Walgreens generic version, the Wal-Dryl Allergy capsules.

      You take them every four to six hours, and at $10 for a 200 count box of pills, that actually goes a long way. It was definitely worth the investment, because I was basically taking them every four hours, two pills at a time, so about 8 pills a day. This box lasted me about three or four weeks of daily use. Sadly, though, there were some reasons I couldn’t keep taking this medication to treat my allergy ...


      • symptoms.

        First off, despite the nice affordability of the product, and the large pill count (meaning I don’t have to head to the store every other day to refill my allergy medication), it has something in it that causes drowsiness for me. I’ve been able to take Benadryl in the past without any drowsy aftereffects, but such is not the case with the Walgreens version of the medication. And it wasn’t just a little drowsiness either. I was downright woozy for a good portion of the day. The pills definitely worked, don’t get me wrong, but I think they would be better suited to treating allergies that are worse in the evening hours, than as an all-day treatment. I really couldn’t even function on them half the time because I just wanted to

        lay on my couch all day and take naps. Now, with that said, I never epxerienced any other negative side effects like an upset stomach or anything, and I’m not entirely sure I’d even consider the marked drowsiness as a negative side effect either, because it comes in handy when trying to help you sleep at night. I was actually more drowsy taking these allergy pills than if I were to take straight over-the-counter sleeping pills, and I have a rather high tolerance for medications. I can’t imagine how it would affect someone who gets sleepy taking Motrin! But, it’s a good medication, and I still occassionally buy it when I need something to help ease the symptoms at night when they are worse and I’m trying to sleep. Good generic option and far more affordable!
