Ingredients in Generic Benadryl

Generic Benadryl is made by numerous different manufacturers, and each generic can have different inactive ingredients (although they all contain the same active ingredients in the same amounts). This can cause problems for people with certain allergies or sensitivities. If you have an allergy to a dye, preservative, or other inactive ingredient commonly used in medications, make sure to check the list of inactive ingredients very carefully.
