  •  Benadryl (4.00)
    Benadryl in capsules is as fast working as liquid. I usually keep both liquid and cap Benadryl on hand because I have family membes who have life threatening allergies.

    As do I. In fact, I woke up two years ago and I was going into anaphlylactic shock. But I didn't have any liquid Benadryl. So I grabbed a capsule and dumped its contents into my mouth. Worked just as well as liquid.

    •  True (none)
      But try dividing a Benadryl capsule into a child-sized dose and getting it into a struggling 4-year-old.  Not saying the capsules don't work, but I optimized for maximum utility in a family situation.

      I probably should have mentioned that it'd be useful to make a dosage chart for full-strength Benadryl liquid using advice from your pediatrician.
