Why do doctors give Benadryl for migraines? Benadryl can block histamine circulation and prevent migraine from occurring. Additionally, by blocking histamine, Benadryl can help calm the nervous system.
Do you always give Benadryl with Reglan? And the results showed that Reglan without Benadryl provided as much relief as with Benadryl. Benadryl is not a dangerous drug, but can make you drowsy, so if you can, ask the doctor not to give it to you. It is not easy to tell a doctor what to do, especially during a severe migraine attack.
What pills are in a migraine cocktail?
- Aspirin, 250 milligrams (mg): This medication is used to reduce pain and inflammation.
